Various venues across Greater Copenhagen; most parties are on Sat Oct 27 When you’re young, Halloween is all about the pumpkin carving, artificial sugar highs and the all-important pick of costume: princess or pirate, oh the agony of choice. But as time drifts on they make way for ghoulish tattoos, Bacardi breezers, and … dressing up as a princess (because let’s face it, some girls never change). By the time you’re older, of course, the scariest thing about Halloween tends to be the hangover and a sore throat after a night spent drinking a witch’s brew in an alltoo revealing costume on an all-too cold Copenhagen night. This year, the city is offering all kinds of grown-up and children’s fun, and even some that they can enjoy together!

Tivoli at Halloween

InOut CPH was founded by Thomas Dalvang Fleurquin

inside this week


THERE WAS a Scotsman, a Welshman, an Irishman, an Australian and two Englishmen – it sounds like a bad joke, but it is in fact the story of James Bond (see G18 for our review of the latest film: Skyfall), a narrative longer than most of our lives, which is showing no signs of ending. For many of us, Bond is our older brother. We grew up aspiring to be like him on Saturday afternoons and Christmas holidays, but then we reached adulthood and realised it had mostly been a fad. Because let’s face it: most of the films are crap, but you don’t really notice when you’re young. Case in point: A View to a Kill and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. As a 13-yearold, I loved the former when it came out, but watch it today and it’s in danger of disappearing into one of Roger Moore’s liver spots, while OHMSS, the one I always had to switch off because it was boring, is clearly the best Bond film by a mile. It’s not just my opinion. I’ve spoken to several fellow Bondologists (despite thinking most of the

films are poor, I’m still obsessed with him: the trivia mostly) and we all seem to concur that despite George Lazenby’s inability to tell a joke, it’s the best. One of them, Mark Walker, the writer of the review, reckons you can always bank on a new Bond being good in his first film because of the increased investment in the product, and it’s a good point. Of the six, only The Living Daylights wouldn’t make my top ten. So it’s good to hear Skyfall is a must-see. I’m proud I’ve seen every one at the cinema since Moonraker, although sometimes I wish I hadn’t bothered with Die Another Day. Its star, Pierce Brosnan, fresh from his Danish flirtation in Love Is All You Need, might be interested to know the Irish Festival (see G9) is coming to town; Donald Pleasance − Ernst Stavro Blofeld in You Only Live Twice − if he was still alive, would have enjoyed going to one of the Halloween parties (see G2) to continue his hunt for Michael Myers; and Max von Sydow, who played Blofeld in Never Say Never Again (yeah, not an official film, we know, but Barbara Carrera: wahay!), will need to get his dog-collar out of the moth balls for CPH:DOX (see G3), which is screening The Exorcist in the 21st Century. You see, Bond is universal. His reach is indefatigable. Long may he continue!

Tivoli Gardens, Vesterbrogade 3, Cph V; ends Sun; entry: 95kr, under-7s free adm; Tivoli’s highly anticipated Halloween celebrations have already begun and will continue throughout the weekend. The brand-new Haunted House attraction – which is so scary that children must be over 12 to enter – opens every night at 18:00, while the open air stage has been taken over by a group of witches who can also be seen in the Halloween village brewing witches’ brews (the kids’ kind). Stop by the witches’ stall to catch spiders, carve pumpkins and do some Halloween shopping.

Originally founded in 2003, CPH:DOX is the non-fiction sister to CPH:PIX. Every year, it brings an increasingly exciting program of works by established names and fresh talents alike, and it features seminars, master classes, production labs and a screening market. Documentary has come a long way in the last decade thanks to the success of films like Janus Metz’s Armadillo and James Marsh’s Man On Wire. If any art form has benefitted from the digital revolution, it is the documentary. Following the Second World War and the advent of television, the documentary film had slowly become a televisual preserve – but no longer. More and more documentaries are finding their way to the big screen and even bigger audiences. With theatrical

Ian Burns of That Theatre Company has joined forces with Sue HansenStyles and Angela Heath-Larsen of Why Not Theatre Company to present Old Times, an erotic and hauntingly surreal play that explores the unstable nature of memory. A married couple’s rural tranquillity is interrupted when an old friend of the wife’s shows up for a visit. The drama that ensues, according to director Barry McKenna, is worthy of a Greek tragedy. “There is something far greater in this text than I have experienced before,” he told InOut.

Mika’s magic Monday: Walk out the door! Mika

Stor Vega, Enghavevej 40, Cph V; Mon 20:00; Tickets 300kr


INCE THE web-release of his first single ‘Relax, Take it Easy’ in 2006, British pop-rocker Mika has never once peeked back. The song was quickly followed by the single ‘Grace Kelly’ in January 2007, which in less than two weeks climbed to the top of the UK singles charts. Just like that, Mika had established himself as a popsensation. His first album, Life In Cartoon Motion, released in February 2007, led to comparisons between himself and pop icons such as Freddie Mercury, Elton John, Prince and David Bowie. One only has to listen to Mika to hear traces of Queen’s frontman in the quiv-

ers of his voice, and Mika’s onstage appearance, very often clad in tight and colourful clothing, has a frenetic and endearing energy – much like that of a Mercury or a Prince. These influences aren’t lost on Mika either, who in ‘Grace Kelly’ sings: “I try to be like Grace Kelly/ But all her looks are too sad/ So I try a little Freddie/ I’ve gone identity mad.” Identity mad describes the album’s coming-of-age theme particularly well, as Mika faces the challenges of transitioning from childhood to adulthood, and of growing comfortably into your own person. The song ‘Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)’ meanwhile is an ode to self-affirmation, regardless of prejudices, while ‘Billy Brown’ chronicles the complications of a closeted married man’s homosexual affair. Born in Lebanon, Mika’s family was

forced to flee Beirut for Paris before he was even one. At nine, his family again relocated, this time to London, where Mika – one of five siblings (two older, two younger) – was trained by Russian opera professional Alla Ardakov at the Royal College of Music. An identity crisis seemed destined to brew in the oft-relocated, middle child, and despite being asked many times by interviewers about his sexuality, he has refused to label himself one way or another. Mika is coming to Copenhagen to promote his third album, The Origin of Love, which he released internationally on September 17 and in the UK on October 8. This broke a three-year studio hiatus after the release of his second album, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, in 2009. Mika has described his latest album

as more “simplistic” and less “layered” than his previous releases, as it deals with “the adult years” and is therefore more “serious” too. Seriousness aside, the tunes are still poppy and up-tempo, with a wide range of influences evident in the album – from electronic headliners Daft Punk, to Woodstock-rockers Fleetwood Mac – as well as the inclusion of varied collaborators, all indicating that Mika still doesn’t define himself in black-andwhite. Instead he prefers to live in the grey, creating pop music that incorporates sounds from across the musical spectrum. While a couple of tracks from The Origin of Love sound almost too similar to something from OneRepublic, a band Mika’s primary producer has worked with in the past, Mika sets himself apart with wide-ranging vocal abilities that allow him to weave seamlessly

in and out of a ‘typical’ pop genre. ‘Stardust’ – produced by Benassi – is an up-tempo track straight out of Italian electronic dance music, in which Mika belts out an ambitious club anthem. In ‘Kids’ the folksy influence of Fleetwood Mac can be heard in Mika’s soft, low (and unfalsettoed) voice, while ‘Origin of Love’ and ‘Love You When I’m Drunk’ feel familiarly Freddie, with Queen-like background harmonisations and peppy, poppy riffs that are truly Mika’s bread-and-butter. Relax, take it easy and give Mika a chance. There’s bound to be a sound, or song, of Mika’s you’ll love, even if you have to get drunk first – which Stor Vega conveniently has a bar for.



Inout | The cph post entertainment guide

26 October - 1 November 2012

The Raveonettes

Store Vega; 20:00; 220kr The Danish rock-duo, led by Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo, offer a loud, electric guitarbased cathartic rock sound. An overwhelming number of effect pedals, catchy vocals and some flamboyant on-stage bravado used to be their gig. Nowadays, their creative juices appear to have run dry, and they are seemingly a shadow of the duet who were formerly singled out by Rolling Stone as being among the vessels of the ‘next wave’ of contemporary music. Still, the band have no problem selling out arena-sized venues – presumably to fans still enamoured by their original material – so if you’re a fan, move swiftly.


CPH Jazzhouse; 23:00; 250kr Hailing from Iceland’s creative capital Reykjavik, the sextet – led by the jazz legend Eythor Gunnarson – were part of the first wave of fusion-jazz acts in the early ‘80s, and one of only a few to become a commercial success, when they released their hit number ‘Garden Party’. Celebrating their 35th anniversary, the band have returned to the stage with a mini-tour to present their new EP, appropriately entitled Islands (2012): a cocktail of danceable funk numbers, exemplar fusion-jazz pieces, and a handful of unexpected acoustic songs in which they take a step back from their much-loved keyboards.

Store Vega; 21:00; 180kr Making their breakthrough in the late ‘00s, this Copenhagenbased rock outfit were the buzz word for the Roskilde Festival, with their tune ‘All Outta Love’ reverberating through the camps. Led by Tobias Kippenberger, the quartet have built on the strong foundations of their debut, All Juice No Fruit (2007) with a further two albums – the latest being Kids And Drunks (2012), which is set to be released later this month.

The Levellers

Lille Vega; 21:00; 185kr Formed in Brighton in 1988, The Levellers are credited as being one of the inspirations of the Brit-pop revolution. Famed for their upbeat brand of folk-punk, and hits such as ‘One Way’ and ‘What a Beautiful Day’, the group stand somewhere inbetween The Clash and Oasis. They continue to be a hit with rock fans today. Having continued to return to the studio, time and time again over the years, the recent completion of their 14th album, Static on the Airwaves (2012), has put the boys back on stage.

King of Pop immortalised by Kings of Circus Preview Michael Jackson – The Immortal World Tour

Parken, Cph Ø; Sat–Sun 20:00; Tickets 465–665kr,


t was always Michael Jackson’s trademark to entertain, inspire, and thrill audiences with his wild performances. It’s no surprise then that Cirque du Soleil has taken the same approach with their daring new show: Michael Jackson – The Immortal World Tour. A tribute to Michael, this show invokes as much passion and thrill as the late singer himself did. Combining original tracks and video footage, with new chorography and acrobatics, The Immortal World Tour gives fans a unique insight into the spirit of a singer who transformed global pop forever. It’s this blending of the old with the new that gives the show its X factor, explains writer and

director Jamie King. “Our goal was not simply to cover Michael, but to take his music to a whole new level, which meant weaving songs together so the music feels fresh and new.” The Immortal World Tour features over 30 of Jackson’s hits, as well as snippets of his songs in the soundscapes and transitions. Attention to detail hasn’t been spared either – audiences can hear original recordings of Jackson snapping his fingers and even stomping his feet. Musical director Greg Phillinganes was unwavering in the show featured as much of Michael in it as was humanly possible. Having worked closely with the singer himself for 25 years, Phillinganes was able to add an unparalleled depth of knowledge when it came to Jackson’s live performances. He was also keen to feature as many musicians with a direct personal link to Jackson as possible.

“I therefore handpicked everybody on the band – I even got Jonathan ‘Sugarfoot’ Moffett, who played drums for Michael for 30 years,” says Phillinganes. And for those who sadly never made it to an original Jackson concert, but wish they had – this is the show for them. The integrated video projections of Jackson’s shows will have you feeling like the King of Pop is right in front of you. King adds that “these features not only act as storytelling devices, but play a key role in making Michael’s presence palpable.” Of course, being Cirque du Soleil, the acrobatic and theatrical elements haven’t gone astray. Take the hit ‘Scream’ for example, where performers fling themselves in the air and bellyflop onto the stage. At the same time acrobats execute a perfectly synchronied tumbling act, as ninja-style aerial dancers are suspended above the set. Then comes the stellar mega mix of ‘Can You Feel It’, ‘Don’t

Stop Till You Get Enough’, ‘Billie Jean’ and ‘Black or White’. Beginning with ‘Can You Feel It’, acrobats carry out a Swiss rings act, moving from stage to sky – it’s enough to have your own belly doing flips! During ‘Billie Jean’ the King of Pop’s famed choreographic style is showcased, while his silhouette is revealed by the dancers’ LED costumes. Finally, ending with ‘Black or White’, Michael’s desire for world peace and harmony is put forward as performers wave flags in a tribute to various nations, while getting their groove on to different dance styles from around the world. This is one full-on, highenergy, flawlessly executed performance that will leave you exhausted just watching it. Jackson may never have imagined himself immortalised through a circus performance, but this is one tribute to the King of Pop that will leave its mark long after the final curtain falls.

Grizzly Bear

Falconer Salen; 20:00; 240kr Based in Brooklyn, this four-bit folk rock outfit have recently released their eagerly anticipated fourth album, Shields (2012), with fans agreeing unanimously that they have raised the bar once again. Weaving a pastoral feel into their distinct take on alternative rock, by using an array of non-electronic left-field instruments, has always been their niche, but their most recent record is admittedly their most adventurous, heralded by Daniel Rossen’s confident voice. Regarded by many listeners as one of the greatest bands of their generation, the quality of their new album has only fortified such claims.

Nightlife Frankie Teardrop Ideal Bar, Fri 22:00; Free adm If you don’t fancy muddying your brogues, or smoking out your blazer, but want to dance the night away to the likes of The Strokes, David Bowie and Pulp, then Frankie Teardrop is right on the money.

The Savage Rose

Koncerthuset; 20:00; 170kr370kr Formed back in 1967, this Danish psychedelic rock group is led by husband and wife – Thomas and Annisette Koppel. Their eclectic brand of prog-rock, psychedelic, and classical jazz elements, paired with Anisette’s powerful Janis Joplin-tinged vocals, led to the group becoming one of Scandinavia’s most celebrated acts. Making a significant contribution to the rock soundscape of the ‘70s, and hailed as Denmark’s answer to New York’s Velvet Underground, there’s few Danes unaware of the group and their achievements.

Tobias Winberg Drone; Sat 22:00; Free adm Drone is a popular spot on a Saturday night, just a few minutes from Sankt Hans Torv along Nørrebrogade. Every week this bar attracts a heavy night crowd from all over town. Copenhagen-bred DJ Tobias Winberg, who is also a regular fixture at other alternative nights around the town, including Frankie Teardrop (listing above), will be playing a set of the latest rock ‘n’ roll, alternative and electro tunes, just downstairs from the main bar.

Daniel van der Noon




Ever since he was old enough to put dirt in his mouth, Erik B Duckert has been attracted to the ground level and below. The attraction of the underground, he says, is that: “When you’re looking at a city from its gutters, you see both the faeces and the silk.” His favourite sewers are those of Copenhagen and in particular those of Nørrebro and Amager, but any place where trash is tossed and skirts are worn, he will want to rest his eyes and say his piece.

(thank God), and at one point I realised that I wasn’t going to use my gym card either. So I quit carrying them around. I realised that you don’t need to carry a hazardous rubber in your pocket to get laid. If you think about it, it might actually work against you. I mean, what message are you sending to yourself – and the world – carrying a condom in your wallet? “I expect to have intercourse with a person whom I have just met, so desperately fast that I can’t even make it to 7-Eleven, ONCE.” Not really the message you want to send, is it? Something similar happens in the case of the gym membership card really. By carrying it around without using it you unwillingly say: “I need to go to the gym, I’m unhappy with my appearance, but obviously I can’t muster the willpower to actually go to the gym, so I really feel fat, guilty and pathetic.” And, funnily enough, that is the exact opposite feeling from the empowered sense of self you had when you purchased the membership. So quit I did. Who says you need a gym with its stupid membership cards of guilt to work out, anyway? I’ve started meeting up with a friend twice a week doing classic ‘granddad gymnastics’: push-ups, sit-ups, air-squats, back-bends and chin-ups. For each element we muster as many repetitions as we can for one minute, followed by a 20-second break, one more minute, and so on for five minutes, then a one-minute break and onto the next exercise. It is a crazy, tough, all-round programme – right there in the guilt-free comfort of your own living room.

Fredensborg Wine NEW Festival 2012 Restauranten Fredensborghusene, Bakkedraget 43, Fredensborg; Sat 12:00-17:00; tickets: 157kr, www.billetnet. dk; 4848 4141, 2144 6353; Learn wine secrets at this festival, choosing from a selection of over 125 varieties from New Zealand, South Africa, Italy, France, Spain, Canada, Denmark and more.

IT HAD BEEN tucked away in my wallet for months. “One of these days I’m definitely going to use it,” I told myself. Days turned into weeks, and weeks into months, but nothing happened. The little square of plastic just turned into a hard-edged piece of guilty conscience every time I caught a glimpse of it: the unused gym membership card. “Well then just quit! It’s costing you like 400 a month, and you never use it!” the voice would reasonably ague. But I knew very well that there was more to that voice than pure reason. I had heard it before. It was the same voice nagging me when I was replacing the tattered, unused condoms in my wallet as a teenager. It was the voice of doubt and shattered dreams, concealed as reason. The thing was that the rubber in the wallet meant more than just a rubber in the wallet, just like the membership card means more than access to the gym – it means possibility. Armed with a condom, I could conquer a girl; it just might happen, and in a weird way that made it (almost) happen. And the membership card was the possibility to train. When I felt it in my pocket, I was not only reminded of all the possible worlds in which I would have been training (and I was training hard in those possible worlds!), I was reinforced in my belief that I would actually train – tomorrow. But, as we all have to learn at one point, tomorrow never comes – it’s always just tomorrow. I never used one of those contraceptives I carried around as a teenager

Alfa-Romeo Giulietta Englandsvej 388A, Kastrup; Prices from 249,000kr; Alfas have always had something on Mercedes cars, but although luxurious and sporty, the lack of quality mechanics always seems to ruin the fun. Alfa Romeo’s new generation of cars want to change that image, drawing more on its expensive brother, Maserati, and reviving old legends like the Giulietta. Wonder where have I heard that idea before? Citroën DS4 Kirstinehøj 66, Kastrup; Prices from 269,000kr; Citroën is probably the last car you would expect to compete with a Mercedes, but wanting to claim its place as a high-end car producer, it’s taking steps towards this. The company is hoping to emulate the success of its first DS, which surprisingly became ‘the most X car’ in almost every category, and most people seriously doubt this will be the case. We all know what happens when you try TOO hard!

Nothing smells better than new car

Honda Civic Englandsvej 382, Kastrup; Prices from 214,900kr; This Japanese die-hard is in its second cycle of adopting Honda’s signature alienstyle bodywork, and luckily it’s getting a lot better at it. No flashy gadgets inside and no visibility problems in the back, this car really was made for driving. The originality of the car’s exterior meant they could keep the interior simple, though the digital display sitting atop of the analog indicators is really useful. The Honda Civic really has become more of a family car than the new A-Class could ever be, both in terms of space and fuel-efficiency. Mercedes-Benz A-Class Baldersbækvej 8B, Ishøj; Prices from 329,000kr; Is the new A-Class actually an A-class car? Well, it certainly is more luxurious than the others I have laid down for you here, so I guess in that regard the good old MB is still on top. But with a rear-end that looks dangerously similar to that of some of the new Citroën models and those hard plastics up on the dashboard that are meant to balance the price for the amazing standard seats, I must say I’m a bit surprised that the whole 2012 stock is already sold out.

THE IRISH have never needed a reason to party, but if they did, the Copenhagen Irish Festival would be just the ticket. Back again for another year, the festival will include nightly concerts, jam sessions, Irish folk dancing, exhibitions, workshops and much more. Festival organiser Janne Rødshagen says it’ll be a “real craic”, to use an Irish term, with the free jam sessions in particular promising to be a big crowd-pleaser. A chance for musicians to let their instruments do the talking, Rødshagen explains, these sessions can often become quite a lively musical spectacle. “They don’t say anything to each other; a nod is enough. They sit down and ‘fall in’, and when the set is over they chat and then they start to play again. Often more musicians arrive and before you realise it, almost by magic, ten to 15 people are playing to their hearts’ content.” This year there will also be an art exhibition at Gallery Krebsen from November 9 to November 25 in which four Irish artists will be showcasing their art. Also particularly special this year is the documentary exhibition at the PHCafé. Depicting the history of the Copenhagen Irish Festival, this event will include photos, press clippings and statements from the audiences as well as from band members.

Opening Concert: Marianne Green PH Salen; Thu (Nov 1) 20:00 (doors open at 19:00); tickets: 100kr Having grown up in Denmark, Marianne Green could easily have ignored the greener pastures of Ireland, but her passion for Irish music led her to establish a successful folk music career. In addition to performing Celtic traditional folk music, she also composes her own songs. Green will be taking to the stage to perform tracks from her debut album Dear Irish Boy, which was coproduced by none other than Andy Irvine, a true Irish music icon. Double concert: Sharon Shannon & Gráinne Holland Staldgade 29; Fri Nov 2 at 20:00 (doors open at 18:30); tickets: 250kr Sharon Shannon literally has music at her fingertips. The Irish accordionist has already received legendary status for her ability to make the much-maligned accordion cool. Renowned for her musical collaborations, Shannon has recorded and toured with the who’s who of the Irish and global music industry, including Bono and Sinead O’Connor. Having performed for the likes of former US president Bill Clinton, and more recently The Sultan of Brunei, this concert will be a great opportunity for the public to see this superstar up-close. Teaming up with Shannon is Gráinne Holland, a fresh new talent from West Belfast. With amazing vocal strength and beauty, Holland is an emerging talent in the Irish traditional music circuit. A pioneer in forging new territory for Gaelic song with her exquisite lyrical charms, Holland has refreshed and revitalised the Gaelic verses of old. Since releasing her debut album Teanga na nGael, produced by renowned musician Dónal O’Connor, she has launched a career that is sure to progress and excite the Gaelic song tradition.



A COUPLE OF months ago when the new Mercedes A-Class officially came onto the Danish market, I was shocked. It represents a complete break-up from its predecessors, which now seem to have an echo in the B-Class. Wondering whether that left the A-Class unprepared and alone in a fight with competitors that could never have before really touched it, I set out to do some test drives. Here is an original comparison of ´the new A-Class with a few cars that you maybe wouldn’t have portrayed it next to.


Green is kicking off festivities on Thursday

Double concert: Paul Brady & Perfect Friction Staldgade 29; Sat Nov 3 at 20:00 (doors open at 18:30); tickets: 250kr Paul Brady – singer, songwriter and multiinstrumentalist – is truly one of Ireland’s most enduring artists. Born and raised in Northern Ireland, Brady has had his inspirations shift and change over the years, but his passion for Irish traditional music has always remained. Throughout his career, he has been a member of several major bands and now enjoys a successful solo career. He’s had a number of well-loved songs, and some of his most popular have been covered by other artists, such as ‘Night Hunting Time’ by Carlos Santana and ‘Paradise is Here’ by Tina Turner. Also performing is young Irish band Perfect Friction, who will make their international debut at this festival. The band features seven musicians and a world-class vocalist, Rebecca Winckworth, who has toured extensively with Anúna amongst other Irish groups. The band’s music ranges from high-energy trad-sets with a full range of instruments (fiddle, flute, concertina, whistle, bodhran and others), to pop and rock songs tastefully arranged with a trad theme. This band is sure to get feet tapping. JESSICA O’SULLIVAN

LATE AUTUMN bordering on early winter in Denmark can mean only one thing: the best ingredients and the most homely ways of cooking them. The other morning, as I so often do, I created a brunch (anyone who’s spent any time at all in Copenhagen will know that the natives’ crowning culinary achievement is this late morning feast) out of what was knocking around in my kitchen. Of course, this being the season it is, it largely consisted of things like apples and pears, but it also took in the classic eggs and bacon – as well as my interpretation of a Waldorf Salad,

which combines apples with the sweetness of the ripe pear, crunch of the nuts, and tang of the balsamic. Part French, part American and part, well, Danish, this spread of edibles is served up in cafes and restaurants city-wide and can be adapted to suit any appetite, taste preference or degree of hangover. I have to admit that the scrambled eggs recipe is Gordon Ramsey’s. I know what you’re thinking: I can make scrambled eggs, thank you very much; I need no help. Wrong. If you’re not doing them as per the method here, then you need guidance!

Restaurant Kiin Kiin Guldbergsgade 21, Cph N; 3535 7535; open Mon-Sat 17:30-21:00; four-course menu 450kr, seven-course 775kr (with wine menu 1450kr); There are only two Thai restaurants in the whole world that have been awarded a Michelin star. One of them is in London, the other one is Kiin Kiin, which you’ll find in the heart of Nørrebro. And it’s well deserved. Kiin Kiin isn’t just a restaurant, it’s an experience, a place where every little detail is thought through. PDR Reinwald’s Farvergade 15, 1463 Cph K; open Mon-Sat 14:00-24:00 (kitchen closes at 22:00); 3391 8289; fivecourse menu with wine 850kr, other dishes 75-215kr; www. Serving lunch and dinner, a director’s script-length of choices confronts you at Reinwald’s. It’s a who’s who of classic French and Frenchinspired Danish dishes as well as a monthly set menu. Any chef would be proud of this. SC Herluf Gade 9, Cph K; 3393 5770,; 1,250kr per person; is a gourmet restaurant with a twist. Tucked away behind a hard-to-find door on the first floor to the right of a typical Copenhagen apartment, the restaurant is based around the concept of the dinner party with guests stepping into what appears to be a private apartment and then being utterly spoilt by their hosts. The monthly set menu costs 1,250kr and has a whopping ten courses, and you can tell them in advance of any food quirks you might have and they will personalise the menu for you. Terrific food, friendly and attentive service and a unique setting. CS

Hero Kitchen Jarmersplads 3, Cph V; open: Tue-Thu 17:00-23:00, Fri-Sat 17:00-02:00 (kitchen closes 22:00); 6969 6000; price range: 40-125kr; Hero, located on the ground floor of the Fox Hotel, which opened in June of this year, captures the authenticity and atmosphere of a Japanese street kitchen (izakaya). So much more than another stock standard Copenhagen sushi place, it offers a delicious range of snacks, salads, small dishes, sushi, meats from the grill, Yakitori (skewered meats), tempura, sashimi, and, of course, a range of sweets. Its Scallop Katafi is the best in the city, while the Yakitori left us speechless – it was divine. Reasonably priced, impeccably chic and unbelievably tasty, this is the place to go if you want to be a hero amongst the trendsetters. JOS Cocks & Cows Gammel Strand 44, Cph K; burgers; open Mon-Thu 11:0024:00, Fri-Sun 11:00-02:00; 78118kr per burger, 70kr per cocktail; 6969 6000;; Eat a burger (cow) and wash it down with a cocktail (cock). The burgers are huge and must be eaten with a fork and knife to prevent a mess. But they’re delicious, and the vegetarian, beef, pork and chicken options mean that even the fussiest eater will find something. DC Oysters & Grill Sjællandsgade 1B, 2200 Cph N; open Mon-Sat 17:30-24:00, Sun 12:00-21:00; oysters cost 1535kr each, main courses cost 135-185kr; 7020 6171; Oysters & Grill is not rocket science, yet it gives diners in Copenhagen access to fresh and delicious food at reasonable prices with an emphasis on seafood, fish and meats, which are prepared simply and flavourfully.

Late Autumn Brunch bacon, eggs, bread apples, pears dried plums/apricots spring onions, celery, chives cashew nuts balsamic vinegar natural yoghurt crème fraiche honey Eggs: Break however many eggs you want into a pan along with a tablespoon of diced butter. Turn up heat on the stove to medium-high and use a spatula (very important) to mix the eggs. Always keeping the eggs moving with the spatula, take the pan on and off the heat. This allows the heat remaining in the pan to cook the eggs whilst not allowing them to get too hot. You’re going for slow, delicate cooking. As the eggs begin to firm up – note: you’re looking for a loose, silky texture at the end – stick in a bit more

Chai:Wong Thorvaldsensvej 2, Frederiksberg; open Mon-Sat 11:00-24:00; SouthEast Asian; starters 55-125kr, mains 135195kr; Inspired by a trip to various Asian cities, the owners have brought authentic Asian cooking to Frederiksberg. Enjoy a lychee mojito as you study the menu, and be sure to try the prawns with rice noodles. For dessert, order the banana cake with salted coconut ice cream, then stagger home, full of good food and wine. CS BioMio Halmtorvet 19, 1700 Cph V; open daily 12:00-24:00 (later Fri and Sat), kitchen open 12:0022:00; 3331 2000; starters 75kr, mains 135kr; Located in an old warehouse next to trendy Kødbyen, Bio Mio is certainly unusual for conservative Copenhagen. It’s stylish without being pretentious, fast enough that you don’t go crazy waiting for food, and loud enough that you can make a racket without anyone raising an eyebrow. JH Cap Horn Nyhavn 21, Cph K; open MonFri 10:00-00:00, Sat-Sun 09:0000:00; 3312 8504; starters from 99kr, main courses from 139kr, desserts from 39kr; see www. for special events Cap Horn’s simple menu boasts a fine selection of organic, homemade Danish fare with a touch of seasonal influence. There were two highlights: the veal, pumpkin, mushrooms and potatoes with amazing truffle sauce (a “best ever veal experience”) and the chocolate cake (“Oh My God”), which was possibly the best chocolate cake ever! MM Karriere Bar Flæsketorvet 57, Cph V; open: Thu 16:00-24:00, Fri 16:00-04:00, Sat 18:00-04:00; 3321 5509; www.

butter. Season the eggs right at the last minute when they come off the heat. Add the chopped chives and a tablespoon of crème fraiche. Salad: Wash and slice the apples and pears finely; wash and chop spring onion. Combine apple, pear and spring onion in mixing bowl with nuts. Pour in natural yoghurt (don’t overdo it; you want yoghurt to just line the other ingredients, not swamp them in a soup) and an optional tiny splash of balsamic vinegar. Mix well but try to not break things up. Porridge: Heat some water on the stove (don’t boil), remove from heat and drop in a handful of dried plums or apricots. You only want to leave them in there for half a minute or so. Take them out and carefully chop into quarters. Add to porridge with a teaspoon of honey. I think the rye bread, bacon and sticks of celery parts are fairly selfexplanatory.

Its fame for fab Italian food is spreading quicker than the Metro

If you’re not famished before you arrive, you will be after ten minutes sitting next to the spit

Finishing off our Italian discovery was a freshly baked Crostata with baked plums and mascarpone cream. Not usually one for sweets, I was hooked from the first mouthful and am looking forward to trying to emulate it at home. For most of us, just jet-setting off to Italy whenever we like is out of the question, but here, with produce sourced directly from Italy at fantastic prices, this cosy little restaurant will make you feel like you’re already there.

Famo Metro


warmed the next day allows the ingredients to become more powerful. Afterwards, we devoured homemade spaghetti with rabbit ragú and fennel flower. Having never before eaten rabbit with spaghetti, I was initially hesitant, but after the first mouthful all doubts were gone. For our secondo, or main dish, we ate oven-baked guinea fowl marinated with lemon, white wine and tomatoes served with sautéed costa (a bitter Italian vegetable). Whilst the meat was moist and the overall taste enjoyable, it did seem to lack any real flavour.


red beetroot salad, served with pine nuts and Pecorino cheese, and the thinly sliced veal, served with balsamico and salsa Valletta. Moving onto the primi dishes, our expectations were high and fortunately Famo Metro didn’t disappoint. A heartwarming dish, the Ribollita – a classic soup from Toscana made with borlotti and cannellini beans, black cabbage and Italian bread – made you feel as if you were actually in Italy. Ribollita, which means ‘reboiled’, is part of a food tradition in Toscana where soup is served with bread in it, which when re-


FINDING GOOD quality Italian food at an affordable price can be quite a challenge in this town. Luckily, that’s where Famo Metro comes in. Founded by Fabbio Mazzon, the former head chef at the esteemed and Michelin-starred Era Ora, and Morten Kaltoft, the restaurant serves genuine Italian food prepared from scratch for reasonable prices. Since opening the original Famo over five years ago, their success has grown. They also have a second branch, Famo 51, and most recently Famo Metro, an authentic and unpretentious eatery. Open for lunch and dinner, Famo Metro offers a set menu that changes daily. From just 250kr, diners can enjoy a small a la carte lunch menu that consists of either two or three courses. For dinner, there is a set five-course menu that is classically Italian in its construction. Serving antipasti (starters), primi (typical pasta dishes), secondo (main courses of meat and fish) and finally dolce (desserts), Famo Metro really is a steal at just 400kr. Dining on a Wednesday night, we certainly hadn’t expected the restaurant to be full, but indeed as we entered through the glass doors into this small and cosy restaurant, we were instantly surprised. With the place filled to almost capacity, our hungry tummies thanked us for booking. As we were led to our table, one thing became apparent: like many restaurants in this city, Famo Metro is trying to get as many tables in as possible, regardless of comfort. As we made our way to our small table, it was a game of skill to negotiate your way around patrons and staff. Once seated, we were greeted by our friendly Italian waiter who, despite his cheery demeanour, wasn’t overly attentive throughout the night. Not speaking a word of Danish, either through choice or necessity, he proceeded to help us with the challenging task, given the size of their drinks menu, of choosing a wine. Upon his recommendation, we settled on a 2008 Pinot Nero Riserva ‘Mazon’, which proved a winner throughout the night. For the antipasti we enjoyed five small and delicious dishes that were a perfect way to start the night. First off, we had wonderfully fresh artichoke sticks with parmesan cheese and prosciutto. Following on, we ate the succulently soft monkfish served with sweet chard and fresh chili. Arriving in quick succession, the oven-baked peppers with tuna and tomato paste sauce were popular among my male companions, whilst we ladies couldn’t get enough of the

You British beauty! Reaches for the sky and delivers MARK WALKER

Skyfall (11) Dir: Sam Mendes; UK/US action/ thriller, 2012, 143 mins; Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Bérénice Marlohe, Helen McCrory Premieres October 26 Playing nationwide


OND FANS can relax. Despite director Sam Mendes being best known for his Oscarwinning film American Beauty and his previous film (Away We Go) being a gentle, conflict-free affair about a 30-something couple looking for a place to start their family, his first (and hopefully not last) foray into Bond is remarkably assured. From the off this reviewer had giddy man-tears sitting in his eyes from the excitement of feeling 12 again. The action set-pieces are dynamic, solid − and while it’s certain there are some, any computer-generated effects are largely invisible. Exotic ladies and locations are all pleasantly present, but do not occupy the foreground: a moody grey London and the breathtaking melancholy of the Scottish Highlands provide most of the scenery. All this creates the impression of a return home for Bond, both literally and metaphorically. At first glance he’s still the same old Bond, drinking Martinis and spouting an infinite number of one-liner quips primed for all occasions. It’s the same old Aston Martin you love, but under the hood he’s packing horse power, the likes of which you’ve never seen. At one point a fellow operative, Eve (Harris), talks about Bond having the look of an old dog with new tricks. In fact, he resembles a prizewinning bull with eyes of blue ice: he’s muscular, unstoppable and genuinely dangerous-looking. The latter

Mendes didn’t receive the MGM memo that it’s not very PC to use fallen civilian bodies as shields ...

is Craig’s trump card: it’s a quality that creator Ian Fleming attributed to the character, but one that only Craig has convincingly embodied. The opening pre-title sequence is a nod to the history of action cinema: a breakneck foot chase that segues into trucks vs cars vs motorcycles that culminates on top of a fast moving train carriage. Then Bond is shot dead. At this point I became worried as to whether it would be possible to maintain this energy throughout. Mendes and the Coen Brothers’ regular director of photography, Roger Deakins, deliver in eve-

ry conceivable department. Mendes’s strong suit is his ability to extract great performances from his cast, and here we find universally strong work from everyone. Craig’s Bond has never been better, Harris is wonderfully charming and in the case of Javier Bardem, he takes what might have been standard Bond fare on paper and turns it into high camp, Blofeld-beating villainy par excellence. Utterly magnetic, Bardem fuses Hannibal Lector with The Rocky Horror Show’s Dr Frankenfurter. An ex-agent, he’s one of M’s prodigal sons, returning to pick a bone with

Mother. Having destroyed the old MI6 building, he’s now gradually releasing the top secret names of all the MI6 operatives. Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been scripting the franchise since the Brosnan era (including the abominable Die Another Day), so one suspects that it is newcomer John Langdon, perhaps with guidance from Mendes, who deserves praise for the script. Despite the heavyweight talent elsewhere, it is the writing that elevates this Bond, giving new depth to characters that could so easily become one-dimensional caricatures of

themselves. Skyfall revolves around a theme that imparts the perils of replacing old with new. It is, in essence, a cautionary tale about retiring our dinosaurs before their time. Considering the theme then, Skyfall appropriately gives relative whippersnappers like Bourne, XXX, and other contenders for the Bond throne, a right royal dust off. Forget the latter Brosnan follies, the much maligned Quantum of Solace and even fan-favourite Casino Royale because, for the first time in nearly two decades, nobody is doing it better.

Sociopathic Aussies and Elizabethan Mads November at Cinemateket Gothersgade 55 Cph K; 3374 3400,


Rowan McNamera happened to be participating in Movember during the filming of Samson and Delilah

OPENHAGEN’S resident arthouse cinema Cinemateket is in Novemeber rolling out the indie red carpet for a multitude of documentaries, dramas and cinematic events. Denmark’s biggest film festival CPH:DOX (see G3 for more details) will next week be holding many of its screenings at Cinemateket during the elevenday festival, while the filmhouse will be showing a mulititude of great film series throughout the month, including the Danish Ad-

ventures Film Festival, including movies from all around the world, a month-long tribute to alternative funnyman Wes Anderson, and on November 12, Rolling Stone’s anniversary of 50 years of rocking and rolling. Check the website for screening details. TOP PICKS: Coming Up Down Under Hollywood is crawling with Alist Aussie actors, including Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush and Hugh Jackman, as well as directors like John Hillcoat (Lawless and The Road) and Andrew Dominik (the forthcoming Killing Them Softly). Yet very few of the country’s domestic films

make their way to Danish cinemas. So this month Cinemateket is focusing on the Australian film industry. With its aesthetic innovation, uncompromising vision and harsh, relevant storytelling, it promises to be a month of cinematic bliss. Don’t miss the chilling psychological thriller about a psychotic Adelaide killer in Snowtown, or the poetic 2009 Cannes Festival winner for ‘best debut’ Samson & Delilah. Javier Bardem Series Though he might be best known for his Oscar-winning turn in No Country for Old Men (as much for his performance as for the haircut) and charming the pants off both Scarlett Johansson and Penelope

Cruz in Vicky Christina Barcelona, Bond’s latest super-villain’s best roles can be found in Spanish cinema. Definitely don’t miss Golden Balls, a film that looks as though it came straight out of the mind of Salvador Dali, or the criticallyacclaimed Biutiful, which nearly won him a second statue. Danish on a Sunday Cinemateket’s bi-weekly screenings of Danish film classics and highly acclaimed newcomers are a great way to get to know Danish cinema. This month, there’s a focus on family and feuds with the gripping documentary The Will and last year’s Mads Mikkelsen period drama A Royal Affair. LINN LEMHAG



26 October - 1 November 2012

New this Week À Coeur Ouvert Dir: Mathias Enards; Fra drama, 2012, 87 mins; Juliette Binoche, Édgar Ramirez; 17:00 Mon at Grand Teatret Mila (Binoche) and Javier (Ramirez) are married heart surgeons who work hard and play hard. When Javier starts doing too much of the latter and Mila falls unexpectedly pregnant, the cracks in their otherwise blissful union begin to show. Despite Enard’s reputiable arthouse cred and two established stars in the leading roles, a clichéd ending and an undernourished script keep À Coeur Ouvert from reaching its full potential. LL

Searching for Sugar Man (15) Dir: Malik Bendjelloul; Swe/ US/SA doc, 2012, 86 mins If you disappear into obscurity after an undistinguished music career, you can always take pride in the fact that halfway across the world a nation is being inspired by your music to start a revolution against a racist oppressive regime. That’s at least what happened in the case of US ‘70s rocker Rodriguez, who was a hero to many during the South African struggle against apartheid. Swedish filmmaker Bendjelloul follows two South African fans as they try to find out what happened to their hero, and the result is as compelling as a real-life detective story. LL

Avoid like the Plague

Looper (15)

Paranormal Activity 4 (15)

Dir: Rian Johnson; US action/ drama, 2012, 118 mins; Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Piper Perabo, Jeff Daniels If there’s a film to finally propel sci-fi into industry respectability it should be this one. With luminous performances from both Gordon-Levitt and Blunt, this is some of the most confident, well thought-out drama this side of an Oscar. A classic is born. MW

Dir: Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman; US thril/hor, 2012, 88 mins; Katie Featherston, Kathryn Newton, Matt Shively, Brady Allen The first one was scary in spite of some horrible acting, the second was just horrible and the third went completely unnoticed. The fact that the money-grubbing studios have decided to give out a fourth one is just embarrassing. LL

Savages (15) Dir: Oliver Stone; US action, 2012, 133 mins; Taylor Kitsch, Aaron TaylorJohnson, Blake Lively, John Travolta, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch At first glance, Savages appears to be a clever and ambitious piece of cinematography, but in reality is more of an expensive, unfocused mess. You spend the better part of two hours waiting patiently for some kind of redeeming surprise, but are left only with morbid torture scenes and a bizarre ending. KRG

Taken 2 (15) Dir: Olivier Megaton; US action, 2012, 95 mins; Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen, Leland Orser The first film was a guilty pleasure that worked only for Neeson’s fast-paced and high-octane action sequences, and in spite of a mind-numbingly dreadful performance from Maggie Grace. Now they’re both back, but this time with frenetic fight scenes that appear to be stolen straight out of Die Hard, and even more screen time for Grace. Skip it. LL

that squarely relies on the comic potential of random flotsam and jetsam pop culture, tongue-incheek offensiveness and stateof-the-art foul-mouthed puppet humour. As with much of MacFarlane’s work, it is devoid of any trace of sophistication or finesse, and is fitfully amusing thanks only to the occasional deadpan shock-value jokes offered by Mark Wahlberg’s crooked straight-man performance. AS

and a stellar cast − including a surprisingly good LaBeouf who puts in the most amiable performance of his career. Despite this though, the heightened on-screen violence isn’t particularly enjoyable or justifiable. The films remains a solidly crafted but cold-blooded affair. MW

Also Playing

Dir: Pete Travis; US/ UK/Ind action, 2012, 95 mins; Karl Urban, Olivia Thrilby, Lena Headey Although the production’s minimal budget noticeably creaks in delivering the goods, there are some visually inventive sequences that ensure your eyes are often kept busy. Your brain, on the other hand, can afford to run considerably slower than usual. MW

The Imposter (15) Dir: Bart Layton; UK doc, 2012, 94 mins; Frederic Bourdin, Carey Gibson, Beverly Dollarhide, Charlie Parker Despite a promising premise for an intriguing documentary about a French man trying to convince a Texas family that he is their missing son, there is a level of over-stylisation that irks. We are drowned in gratuitous pseudo-tension and filmic technique, which ultimately serve only to detract from the genuine craft involved in documenting this complex and fascinating story.

Lawless (15) Ted (15) Dir: Seth MacFarlane; US comedy, 2012, 106 mins; Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Seth MacFarlane, Joel McHale, Giovanni Ribisi A tale of Peter Pan-esque protracted male adolescence and ‘broversus-ho’ ethics, this is a film

Dir: John Hillcoat; US/drama/action, 2012, 116 mins; Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska Hillcoat has delivered an immersive experience, a fully realised world populated by morally complex characters

Dredd (15)

On The Road (15) Dir: Walter Salles; US drama, 2012, 137 mins; Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Kristin Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen The novel portrayed an intoxicatingly fierce personal quest for meaning and belonging in a cold war America full of conflict and contradiction. This adaptation fails to capture this search for a codified new way forward and instead relies on oversimplified sensation, surface angst and fragmented movement from one isolated and unexplored bohemian bubble to another, each of which seems to deflate with the merest of bombastic whines and groans. AS


Moonrise Kingdom (7) Dir: Wes Anderson; US comedy, 2012, 94 mins; Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances MacDormand, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Jared Gilman, Katy Howard This newest feature film from debonair filmmaker Anderson has a brilliant cast, a wry script and stunning cinematography. It’s fashionable entertainment, and will no doubt please Anderson’s considerable fan-base. But under all the bells and whistles, is it just another coming-of-age, feel-good romcom – even a faintly insincere one at that? MW

The Expendables 2 (15) Dir: Simon West; US Action, 2012, 103 mins; Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Bruce Willis, Big Arnie Sly Stallone and other compatriots from the 2010 film The Expendables return for the 2012 sequel, joined by an even more star-studded cast of action movie legends. If you want to see old Hollywood heroes tear up the town in a fastpaced, shoot-em-dead flick loaded with its share of wry humour, make The Expendables 2 your choice this weekend. Just don’t expect much more than that. HB

Falling Skies TV3+, ep1: Sun 16:00, ep 2: Thu 22:00

If you enjoyed the discomfort of War of the Worlds before it disintegrated into slush so sickly it even made Forrest Gump hurl, then new sci-fi drama series Falling Skies, with a solid 71 on Metacritic, could be for you. The aliens are here. And they’re not nice. It’s the ultimate bad scenario, and given these things normally last for seven seasons, it’s not going to get any better anytime soon. “Serious without being grim, uplifting without being saccharine,” praised the LA Times. “Falling Skies dares to image what feature films will not - a world in which Will Smith did not bring down the mothership in time.” But don’t be put off by the lack of answers in the first episode. “You get the sense that we’ll get those an-

swers eventually,” chimes The Hollywood Reporter. “And yet, you want to devour the next episode immediately.” Devour is an unfortunate word choice when considering Bolinao 52 (DR2, Tue 17:55), a doc about one of the boats that set sail from war-torn Vietnam in 1975 with 110 on board and … you’ve guessed it. Equally bleak is the death row doc Into the Abyss (SV2, Tue 22:30), which scored 74 on Metacritic and the Chicago Sun Times called “the saddest film Werner Herzog has ever made”. However, there are glimmers of hope that, according to the Miami Herald, elevate it “far above the usual chatter of liberalconservative debate”. High above, ahead of his time, the myth of Everest mountaineer

George Mallory is explored in Wildest Dream - Conquest of Everest (DRK, Tue 17:30 & 22:45). Did he reach the summit in 1924? A missing camera might hold a clue … Elsewhere, Talking Movies (BBC World, Sat 13:30 & Sun 20:30) dedicates its entire coverage to the new James Bond film; half TV3+, ep1: Sun16:00, ep2: Thu 20:00 Falling Skies a century after the Bay of Pigs, we learn how close most of us came to never existing in Minutes From Nuclear War (BBC World, Sun 22:30); there are new seasons of This is England ‘88 (SV2, Fri 22:15) and Entourage (SV2, Tue 22:45) right on the back of their previous outings; and another chance to see season two of Hung (TV2 Zulu, Sun 11:05) and season one of Hope and Faith (TV2 Zulu, Sat 13:15).
