inside this week


GO ON THEN, reluctantly and with great sadness, it’s time to concede that Christmas is here. While the supermarkets made that decision some time ago – some even during the build-up to Halloween – and the julebryg came out at the beginning of the month, it’s clear the modern world wants the festive season to start before Advent and December 1. So this is my compromise: it ain’t Christmas until the Tivoli cash register rings (see G8 for minimal details on the amusement park’s grand holiday opening on Thursday 22 November). This year they’re going for the Russian-Scandinavian look, which roughly translated means that after doing the Russian Christmas last year, they’ve made do with what was in storage: some nisser, a façade of the Kremlin and some fake Swedish forest cabins. So to enter into the festive spirit, we’re running the first of our Christmas Select Shopping columns (see G9), which this week looks at the best markets out there

– or, at any rate, the most durable. Next week, look out for our selection of the best student-run arty markets, a seriously good option to find a one-off present for that special somebody. Or if you have an eye for an investment, it’s a chance to buy the work of a star of the future. Like Queen Margrethe, for example – I wonder how much her art is actually worth, particularly now she is the set designer for Tivoli’s production of The Nutcracker (see G3 for details, and in the newspaper in early December for a full review). The cliché “No Christmas is complete without” is one we probably overuse, and to be fair, I seem to have managed pretty well without seeing it (if managing well is being the Grinch), but this really is a great chance to introduce some culture to your kids. They might hate it, and they’ll probably fall asleep if you go on a weeknight, but at least you tried. So here’s to the festive season, a period so long it’s with us for over 50 days a year now. I don’t wish it could be Christmas every (seventh) day, but what am I going to do? Kill Santa and barbecue his reindeer? Establish a totalitarian regime and ban the colour red? Tax people for saying hyggeligt and skål. Now there’s an idea.


Semiramide (Semiramis)

Operaen, Main Stage, 10 Ekvipagemestervej, Cph K; starts Thu, ends Jan 16; performances at 19:00 (unless stated) on Nov 22, Nov 25 (15:00), Dec 3, Dec 5, Jan 1, Jan 10, Jan 13 (15:00), Jan 16; tickets 125-895kr, billet@kglteater. dk, 3369 6969; foyer opens three hours before curtain time (bars one hour before); duration 240 mins, two intermissions; sung in Italian with Danish supertitles; ALTHOUGH the Quarterly Musical Magazine in 1823 described Gioachino Rossini as looking more like a “sturdy, beefeating Englishman” than a sensitive “fiery-spirited native” of sunny Italy, Semiramide (in Danish: Semiramis), composed that same year, encapsulates all the romantic allure that the journal found lacking in the man’s outward features. The occasion for the description was Rossini’s move to London on an invitation from the King’s Theatre. While the ensuing London productions of Rossini operas such as The Barber of Seville and Zelmira failed to wow audiences, two others fared as hoped and satisfied the crowds. They were Otello and Semiramide. The swansong of his career in Italy, Semiramide is Rossini’s operatic adaptation of a famous 1748 Voltaire tragedy, which in turn is based on the historical life of a 9th century Assyrian queen, Shammuramat. Rossini’s librettist Gaetano Rossi takes us to the cradle of civilisation, Mesopotamia’s Babylon (in current-day Iraq). Here we visit the Temple of Baal – a stone’s throw from the mythical Hanging Gardens – where the people await Queen Semiramide’s announcement of who will succeed her husband, the late King Nino. Two men, Idreno and Assur, the latter of whom was Semiramide’s accomplice in the nefarious murder of Nino, recommend themselves but Semiramide wants her beloved Arsace, a young soldier, to step forward. Arsace is late for the ceremony, and when he finally arrives he has no intentions of gratifying Semiramide’s wishes. The reason is he is in love with her daughter – an idea the egocentric queen is altogether unable to fathom. When the ghost of the late king briefly appears to dispel all mystery surrounding his demise, Assur threatens to reveal Semiramide’s crime if she doesn’t make him king. Things do not grow less tense and unsettling when Arsace discovers the true identity of his mother and father. Without revealing too much here, audiences will observe that this is where the story goes from apparently channelling pre-bedroom scene Hamlet to

Performance Old Times

Krudttønden, Serrdslevvej 2, Cph Ø; ends Nov 24, performances Mon-Fri 20:00, Sat 17:00; tickets 95-165kr, www.; 80 mins, no intermission; Harold Pinter’s brand of morbidly funny and deliciously weird is coming to Østerbro. Ian Burns of That Theatre Company has joined forces with Sue Hansen-Styles 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. LL

It’s murder trying to get a taxi at the Opera, even if everyone is looking the other way

the bits of Oedipus that so caught Freud’s interest. Contemporary British opera-goers were, as mentioned, hospitable to Rossini’s latest opera seria (denoting a noble and ‘serious’, quasi-melodramatic style of Italian opera). Interestingly, though, the composer was in fact spiting none other than Ludwig van Beethoven, who had urged him to stay in the comical vein of his most popular work The Barber of Seville. “It’s unnatural for the Italian mentality to write serious operas,” he lectured at the height of Rossini’s Italian fame – a peculiarly rigid view for such a transcendent composer. Verdi, however, incidentally singled the work out as being crucial to his personal development as a dramatist. Forget Beethoven’s scepticism. Although seldom performed nowadays, Semiramide has aged well despite its lack of light-hearted humour, and it’s not only due to the unforgettable orchestral compositions and numerous show-stopping arias. The story manages to capture aspects of culture that have shown their appeal and interest over time. One curious example is the titular character, who is universally recognisable and happens to bear more than a fleeting resemblance to none other than Alexis Carrington, played by Joan Collins in the ’80s popular soap opera Dynasty. Indeed, the set and costume designer Nigel Lowery has opted for several

Isn’t Copenhagen lucky?! Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, one of the best loved operas of all time, is being staged in this city for the second year in a row. VS


Republique, Østerfælled Torv 37, Cph Ø; ends Dec 1, performances Tue-Fri 20:00, Sat 15:00 and 20:00; tickets 160–255kr; Suspend disbelief – and gravity – for the return of one of the most highoctane performances you’ll ever see. The death-defying stunts and thrills of Blam! are back with a bigger ensemble and better story. AS

direct references to that character. Also, for the set design, Lowery has chosen to indicate the unavoidable rise and fall of states and cultures by introducing photographs of partially blasted Mesopotamian palaces, the results of corruption and barbarism. Then there is the music. Brandishing the baton at the Copenhagen Opera is the multitalented conductor Israeli Rani Calderon, a fast emerging international phenomenon, who – if anyone can or will – appears able to bring about Semiramide’s deserved renaissance. He describes its arias as musical masterpieces, but also as individual makeor-break exercises. Intimidatingly, the singers will either find themselves equal to it – or not. Similarly, says Calderon, the choral singers have no choice but to rise to the occasion and reinvent themselves as actors – expressing real happiness, anxiety, horror – for the music to become ‘miraculous’. Semiramide stars globally-acclaimed singer Henriette Bonde-Hansen in the charismatic, complex title role and also features the English bel canto tenor Barry Banks (playing Idreno), known from the Met in NYC. One can only hope that the attention created by the great forces behind will foreshadow further productions of this musthear ‘song fest’.

Crazy Christmas Cabaret presents Hitchcock-Up!

Glassalen in Tivoli, Vesterbrogade 3, Cph V; ends Jan 12, performances Mon-Sat 19:30, Sat 15:00; tickets 100-370kr, www.; This year, to celebrate 30 years of the CCC, the master of suspense is being reinvented by the mistress of suspenders. “I write the show about issues that are relevant to the public,” writer, director and leading lady Vivienne McKee told InOut. “And Hitchcock is as influential today as he was when he was alive. Just look at The Killing and Borgen − they have that Danish Noir quality that is undoubtedly Hitchcockian.” The plot sees ‘Vivienne’ decide she’s had enough of the CCC format and instead decides to adapt a long-lost Hitchcock script. Her actors vow to dispense of her as soon as possible.

La Bayadère

Gamle Scene, Kongens Nytorv, Cph K; ends March 15, performaces Sat, Mon, Wed & Thu at 20:00; tickets 95-740kr; www. La Bayadère, set in India in the late 1800s, centres around a love triangle involving a young British lieutenant. The Kingdom of the Shades scene is considered on par with some of the greatest scenes in Swan Lake. AS

The decision to play with the curtain drawn halfway up was not initally popular with the audience, until they learnt that it was the Nolans

facets through the medium of movement. Throughout the piece, Boon has created a performance where the story isn’t expressed through the dancer’s movements, but rather he uses the dancers as the actual emotions and ideas themselves. The piece explores two thematic threads: the first tackles the theme of memory, and the second explores the possibilities of the human body. As it Fades also stays true to the company name THE, which stands for ‘the human expression’. This is one performance that will have audiences memorised by the sheer beauty of dance as Boon captures physical nuances not easily expressed

through words. Following on from As it Fades, come two pieces, Inside and Adam without, which begin on Thursday (November 22). Inside, choreographed by Adam Fejes, takes a close look at the most primitive aspect of the human being: our instincts. Through relationships, love, isolation and reciprocity, the dancers show that the line between humans and animals is continually blurred. As if all that wasn’t enough, then comes Adam without, which is choreographed by Jens Bjerregarrd. This is a joint performance by Mancopy and MU Terminal – an in-house company hailing from Budapest.

The performance takes on a hypothetical biblical twist, posing the question: what if Adam was alone in the Garden of Eden? Audiences then meet Adam in two states – with a woman and without. I guess you could also explain this as a creative take on the ‘Men are from Mars’ book that alternates when it includes the ‘and women are from Venus’ part. The piece shows Adam in a sort of controlled laboratory type situation. The two lead dancers – although from the same garden – are exposed to different situations and roles. How does one respond when confronted with a woman?

How does one respond without a woman? It’s a fascinating and original look at questions rarely asked. The final performance, performed exclusively by Mancopy, is Every Last Breath. Choreographed by Jens Bjerregaard, Every Last Breath shows the picture the modern media has painted of the Middle East and then seeks to challenge it. It offers a look at what life is like in the shadows when one must take on many identities just to survive. The power in this piece comes from having the four principal dancers each hailing from a different background. Furthermore, the fact that

many of the young dancers have lived in the Middle East – under various religious and political regimes – adds a rare authenticity to their on-stage performance. Every Last Breath also reflects a core value of the Mancopy dance company – to create valid art that leaves an impression both in and outside one’s society. So if you’re up for having all of your preconceived ideas about dance challenged, while contemplating some pretty farflung ideas, then check out the Mancopy and More festival.

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti Store Vega Mon 20:00 190kr,


riel Pink raises conflicting opinions, but if you had to reach a consensus on a term to describe him, it would probably have to be ‘weirdo’. For good or bad, Ariel Marcus Rosenberg is an authentic specimen of a 21st century internet-era genuine weirdo. Ariel, a man crowned by a fuchsia Iggy Pop-like hairdo, knows this is not accidental, and that his inherent eeriness is an aesthetic driving force. After all, it was him who expressed his vocation in terms of making “the worst

thing − the thing that even people who liked bad, terrible music wouldn’t like”. No wonder The New York Times once called one of his 2004 performances “an experiment in driving two-thirds of the audience out the door”. Ariel Pink was born 34 years ago in the Beverlywood area of Los Angeles. The offspring of a broken marriage, the former heavy metal devotee turned goth, who is also an art-school dropout, has searched for his own personal musical narrative. The Cure was the last ‘new’ band he cared about; since then, he has been spiralling down secret tunnels of musical obscuritiy. Ariel’s art is the manifestation of his own musical cosmology, which appears to be familiar, yet murky and abnormal.

16 - 22 November 2012 The musical landscape painted by Ariel Pink feels like it is a collection of humankind’s musical history, as dreamt by a hyperactive kid. Only Ariel could present an interpolation of ‘Love me Do’, singing lyrics like: “She’s a nympho at the bibliotheque, Dr Mario, colonoscopist.” This is an odd mix, but it kind of sums up the polychromatic features of his music. Due to the success of his last two records, Before Today and this year’s Mature Themes, one could be fooled into thinking that Ariel is a relatively new name on the music scene. However, he has in fact been releasing home-made music since 1996, working as a oneman band, recording all the instruments himself, and even transforming his

mouth and armpits into beat-machines. It wasn’t, though, until the release of his album The Doldrums, through Animal Collective’s label Paw Tracks in 2004, that his name began to circulate, before he made his real breakthrough with the release of Before Today in 2010. Over time Ariel Pink has acquired a fully-fledged band, Haunted House Graffiti, and the muddy qualities of his music have taken on a cleaner sound. However, the eccentricities, complicated structures and idiosyncrasies of his music have not been sacrificed as he has become well known. Today he just manages to feed his zany music to more people. There’s undoubtedly a mastery to his performance level, which is matched

by a band that often includes the legendary R Stevie Moore, Ariel’s personal guru. For Ariel, the stage has become a second home: a platform for his musical and individual personalities to burst out. This month, two years after a soldout concert at Loppen, we have the opportunity to witness music’s most genuine weirdo and his pack once again. If we are lucky he will sing under dim purple lights and open a door to his peculiar musical valley. Ariel once declared that the unconscious is the territory that he mines more than anything, and maybe we will discover that we are all a bit weird ourselves. Letitia Despina

Twin Shadow

Store Vega; 21:00; 180kr Born in the Dominican Republic and raised in Florida, George Lewis Jr is a one-man show. A string of immaculately produced pseudo ‘80s hits paired with his airtight, seemingly ironic stage persona made him a cult pop figure following the release of his clean, icy electro-pop debut, Forget, in 2010. Swapping his angel-faced, harmless art student image for the cocky badboy stud, his follow-up record has raised even more eyebrows thanks to a compilation of tunes that tread on even more intriguing territory. This one’s sure to sell out, so get in quick for some tickets.

Loppen; 21:00; 180kr Lee Fields is the last remaining bastion of soul after all, as his website observes: “There aren’t too many artists making soul music today who had a release in 1969.” Backed by a relatively youthful band, who in the spirit of the ‘60s are called the Expressions, Fields’s demeanour, raspy vocal style and sharp sense of style epitomises, according to Pitchfork, “a throwback done right”. Quite simply, there is no other performer around close to Fields (save for Aloe Blacc), and his music will become a staple of your playlist upon the first listen. Just try waking up to ‘Wish You Were Here’ one morning.

Bloc Party

Store Vega; 20:00; 280kr The East London outfit emerged in 2005 with their debut Silent Alarm − surely one of the highlights of British music in the naughties. Stacked with hit after hit, ‘Banquet’, ‘Helicopter’ and ‘She’s Hearing Voices’ in particular have become iconic club tunes for the generations that missed out on the likes of Joy Division, Gang of Four and The Cure (obvious inspirations of the group). However, now seemingly running low on gasoline, their most recent record, Four (2012), seemingly fails to muster that creative TNT that lay at the foundations of their first couple of records.

Andrew Bird

Amager Bio; 20:00; 265kr The Chicago-born singer-songwriter (and violinist) made a name for himself by experimenting with the fundamental elements of folk music. Prior to the release of his new record, Break It Yourself (2012), the content of his musings were of a similar ilk to Belle & Sebastian: delicately pieced together ballads packed with overwhelming emotion. His latest release is patently more eclectic and honest. It’s a covert reworking of old-fashioned southern folk music and it’s fashioned in a way Fleet Foxes only came close to achieving, full of electronic quirks, orchestral flutters and unlikely beams of jazz.

Tame Impala stampedes Lille Vega Review Tame Impala

HHHHHH Lille Vega


he last time this reviewer saw Tame Impala was about three years ago. It was on the band’s home turf at an Australian festival, and while the music was great, it felt like watching a bunch of young stoners jam in their living room. Monday night at Lille Vega was different. Tame Impala was very aware of their audience and they had come to perform, doing away with the self-indulgent extended guitar solos I had heard before. Kicking off the proceedings with ‘Desire Be, Desire Go’, lead singer Kevin Parker braved the night chill in bare feet, using his toes to tap the pedals and twist the dials. A doe-eyed blondie in the front row shot him love ar-

rows from her eyeballs all the while. It was the Perth band’s first visit to Copenhagen, and Parker said they had spent the day walking around exploring all the “Lego and weed” the city had to offer. Parker later threw a Lego creation of his into the crowd, and fans scrambled for one of the splintered fragments. A few retro amps and a scratchy light that had the ef-

fect of an old-school Windows screensaver set the scene for the band’s dreamy, psychedelic tunes. The dramatic pause in ‘Elephant’, off their 2012 album Lonerism, was memorable. After a long drum roll, the drummer bashed out a solo and the rest of the band chimed in for roughly four bars before the song came to an abrupt halt. ‘Why Won’t You Make Up Your Mind?’ followed, as well as

two other Innerspeaker tracks: ‘It Is Not Meant To Be’ and ‘Runway, Houses, City, Clouds’. At one point, Parker sagged onto the stage, played the guitar in his lap and, as if cued by the drums, leapt up before slumping down again – an impressive move. The audience nodded and danced to the music’s reverberating drone. It was a packed room and everyone responded with cheers when Parker occasionally spoke, despite the microphone’s lingering distortion effect between songs. Some of the rowdier blokes – probably Australians – jumped about like jackhammers. Unsurprisingly, the crowd called Tame Impala back for an encore. The band played an extended version of ‘Half Full Glass Of Wine’, definitely a crowdpleaser, and rounded off a solid 80 minutes of quality music. And a couple of lucky folks took home a souvenir – even if it was just a Lego man’s arm. Max Freckleton

Nick Waterhouse

Pumpehuset; 21:00; 120kr Just 25, Waterhouse’s distinctive music is rooted in the club-houses of ‘50s New Orleans, Detroit and Memphis. Few artists are able to pull this off with conviction, but Waterhouse succeeds because, according to Gilles Peterson of BBC Radio 1, he’s “so so good. It’s not old, it sounds old − but it’s new.” In true Motown fashion, he has a backing group, the Tarots, and a trio of female backing vocalists, the Naturelles. This will transport you back to a time and place where televisions were black and white and hovering cars still a possibility. Here’s a gig you really ought to show up to.

Nightlife Jessie’s Jolenes; Thu 22:00; free adm Crowned as Copenhagen’s best alternative club night in town, Jolene’s Thursday night has made an early start to the weekend an easy choice. While the club tends to always be filled to capacity on Saturday − with an array of Copenhagen’s young and trendy sporting leather brogues, dirty denims and cowboy jackets − the humorously-titled clubnight Jessie’s is fast becoming a night almost as popular thanks to its rotating in-house and international DJs. Ocean View Release Party Drone; Fri 21:00; free adm Located on Nørrebrogade, this basement club has become something of a springboard for Copenhagen’s up-and-coming acts − the most recent being Ice Cream Cathedral who recently played Lille Vega.

Loppen; 21:00; 130kr San Francisco’s four-piece made their foray into the industry with an altogether different, experimental approach in the mid-‘90s. Emerging in the mid-‘00s with Milk Man (2004), their stopstart, sonically confusing and choppy hooks were embraced by listeners of the likes of the Fiery Furnaces, Animal Collective and the Flaming Lips. Relentlessly continuing their butchery of orthodox electronic music, even their most recent record, Breakup Song (2012), is alarmingly contemporary in the realms of noise rock. (Please note that Django Django at Store Vega on Thursday is sold out. ) Daniel van der Noon of caution: be sure to take some ID along with you even if you’re wearing high-heels or sporting facial hair, they’re prone to carry out random checks as I learned a weekend or two back. Mesteren & Lærlingen Sat 22:00; free adm Located between Kødbyen’s two main hemispheres − on the one side lies Jolene’s, Bakken and Karrierebar, on the other KB18 and a handful of pop-up venues − Mesteren & Lærlingen offers a lively bar atmosphere where you can get a quick cocktail in. Known for eclectic, off-the-wall DJs and its crowded dancefloor spilling on to the forecourt, it’s a nice breakaway from the heavier, smokier and more dance-orientated venues that give Kødbyen its lively reputation.

Hot Chocolate: everyone’s a winner! MAYBE IT’S the Brit in me, but given how my writing and I are so inextricably linked to the weather, is it even possible to have a conversation without mentioning the weather? I don’t think so! Weather, in all its different guises, runs like a thread, weaving together the meals I choose to prepare and of course the seasonal flavours that are so important. It also means that when it is cold outside, I long for a hot drink to warm my insides or vice-versa. When out and about as a child in this late season, one of the most favourable treats my sister and I could hope to receive was a hot chocolate. You know the kind: a warm soothing mug of milky sweet bitter chocolate, topped with a good helping of cream and a generous sprinkling of chocolate to finish. Not an everyday treat, but something to look forward to immensely: an instant hug in a mug. Add a spicy heartwarming gingerbread man and the moment becomes a lifelong memory. I happily share the experience with my children, and between us we have our own favourites here in Copenhagen. It is quite amazing just how many varieties one can find here; in fact, I am sure a ‘bar crawl’ along and alongside Stroget would produce an array of styles. From the more modest powdered-chocolate mix hydrated with hot water, which usually tastes amazing as it is the one most of us find when freezing cold and battling the elements somewhere in a forest or seaside town.

a hot chocolate”, destination drink − the one that promises much and never fails to deliver. A block of rich dark chocolate lovingly dropped by stick into a frothy hot cup of milk where it melts tantalisingly slowly, too slowly if you are under the age of ten, before being crowned by a towering mass of chocolate-capped cream mountains. My boys prefer the one they can order at Books & Company in Hellerup, also the closest to their school funnily enough, but they assure me that my version is their second favourite (they are good boys and I suspect no ulterior motive!). It’s not too sweet, full of cocoa and topped with a generous addition of whipped cream. I asked the parents at school which were their favourite places to go and these are some of the suggestions they made. No two were the same, which leads me to believe that no matter where in the world we are from, Hot Chocolate speaks a language that we all understand.

BEFORE entering this little gem of a wine bar, one has to traverse the colourful and slightly offbeat street that is Istedgade. Despite the fact it’s a street I usually try and avoid, I made the trip down it to discover this delightful Argentinian wine bar. Retro and stylish without a hint of being too pretentious, Malbeck Winebar is that superb place to natter away to a friend for an hour (or four like I did), while enjoying some of the best red wine South America has to offer. Unlike the Chilean reds that can often taste a little too acidic, the Malbec grapes grown in Argentina are known for their fullbodied, more sugary flavours as the country receives around 300 days of sun throughout the year. They’re also grown at an altitude of 1000 metres, meaning they mature a lot more slowly than other varieties, which gives them a very rich and round flavour. I began with a 2008 Enrique Foster Terruño Lunlunta Malbec, which I might add has one of the most stunning bouquets. This drop was gorgeous and full, with an aftertaste that increased the enjoyment of the wine ten-fold. One thing to notice about Malbeck is its attention to detail. We were doted on by a sommelier who had a fantastic knowledge of the regions, the qualities and the processes that make a Malbec grape so special. The detail was also shown in the wine: each drop was served between 14 and 18 degrees and in the right sized glass, so the wine could breathe and the bouquet was at its best. And while the focus is on the wine here, there are little nibbling plates with olives,

This is an event for the entire family with a chance to learn more about water safety in a fun way. MSØ

The long and winding bar leads me (the sleaze) to your stool

cheese, nuts and bread to satisfy your snaking needs. The second glass I found myself enjoying was the 2008 Miras Malbec. I daresay this is probably the most popular wine in the house. Compared to the first glass, it had a lot of mineral flavours running through it. This is because (as it was explained to us) this Malbec grows in the south of Argentina in the Patagonia desert region where the soil contains a lot more mineral expressions. That’s another thing about Malbeck – you can get an education on wine there too. Unlike some wine bars where most people pretend they know more than they do and haphazardly guess where the grapes are grown, here there’s no shame in having a variety of wines and their backgrounds explained. The final wine I tried was the Benegas Sangiovese from 2008. It was obvious this was not a malbec grape, but rather a sangiovese, as it was in stark contrast to the previous two glasses. It was lighter but not as full-bodied at the first, and I must say it took

some time to settle into. And just like the wine, the atmosphere at Malbeck is rather unique. While you’re enjoying the tastes of far-off lands, you almost feel as if you’ve journeyed back to 1960s Denmark. There are stairs to sit on, with little wooden boxes that act as tables, and music that sounds like an old-fashioned record player is in full swing. Combine this with low hanging designer lights and you’ve got yourself one cosy little wine bar. (And don’t worry – you won’t be surrounded by too many Vesterbro hipsters.) And if all that wasn’t enough to have you experience Malbeck for yourself, then perhaps the happy hour will entice you. Running every day between 16:00 and 18:00, all the wines on the menu are halfprice. This is one little gem that’s worth the sometimes wild wander down Istedgade to get to. EMILY MCLEAN

EVERY SO OFTEN a new diet fad hits the country, and this year, the ‘Stone Age Diet’ is the talk of the town. This diet has become hugely popular in Denmark, in particular among men. It’s based on the diet of the hunter-gatherer societies of the Paleolithic Era, from over 2.5 million years ago until the invention and spread of agriculture in 8,000 BC. The cavemen ate meat in the form of wild game and fish that they hunted and killed; insects and vegetables, particularly green leafy vegetables and root vegetables like carrots; fruit when it was in season; and nuts and berries that they gathered.

The Stone Age diet is a modern adaption of this way of living. In real life it means, that everything that is processed is banned, all grains such as pasta and bread are forbidden and starchy food like rice and potatoes are a no-go. Some also shun dairy products. Followers praise the health benefits of weight loss, higher fibre intake, lower sodium levels and a life free of many of the sources of allergies. As a registered dietician I don’t usually recommend any diet where some foods are banned. However, the caveman’s diet is sound as long as you get sufficient carbs from fruit, vegetables and berries.

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.

Meatza For the base: 400g minced organic beef ½ tbsp dijon mustard 1 organic egg ½ tbsp chopped rosemary 1 clove of garlic 1-2 tbsp pine nuts or sunflower seeds For the Topping: 1½ red onions 200g mixed mushrooms 1-2 chopped cherry tomatoes or one big one. Lump of goat’s cheese THE CAVEMAN’S diet is not an excuse to forego vegetables and just eat meat! Don’t just hunt, also remember to gather! A perfect compromise is a meatza: like a pizza, but the base is made of meat instead of dough. Cook the onions in the oven for at least 30 minutes, at approximately 160-170 C.

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. An edgy bar where the music and gossip don’t end, Karriere Bar, hidden in a corner of Kødbyen, should be number one on your list for dining and cocktails. SM

16 - 22 November 2012

For the base, mix the beef, mustard, egg, rosemary, garlic and pine nuts, and then spread it onto a tray, making two to four cakes-like pizza bases. Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Check during oven time. While the base is in the oven, fry the mushrooms in a bit of olive oil. Add a bit of salt and pepper and add the diced tomatoes. When the onions are done, take them out of the skin, dice them and add to the mix in the pan. Once the meatza base is done add the topping with a few slices of the goat’s cheese and put it back in the oven. When the cheese melts, it’s time to eat. This recipe is inspired by the meatza served at Palæo in Torvehallerne, the creation of Michelin star chef Thomas Rode, one of the chief advocates of the Stone Age Diet, who has just published a caveman’s cookbook.

Restaurant Dalaman Vodroffsvej 15, Frederiksberg C; Open daily 16:0024:00; 3322 1231; threecourse menus 119kr, 139kr & 159kr pp; Turkish restaurant Dalaman puts an emphasis on good food and customer satisfaction. It’s a haven for meat lovers and is popular among its clientele for the meaty mixed grill. AJ Saxo Cafe Colbjørnsensgade 11, 1652 Cph V; open 11:00-23:00; 3888 8288; Chinese buffet 128kr pp, dim sum dishes from 35kr; Saxo’s menu is an eclectic and comforting mix of cultures, incorporating Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese buffets, Dim Sum and Vietnamese menus, and traditional Danish fare. With such a wide choice, it’s a great place to go as a group who can’t agree on a choice of cuisine.

G13 Bringing a wallet-friendly flavour of India to Indre By FOOD & DRINK


16 - 22 November 2012

AS LEGENDARY Café A Porta in Kongens Nytorv closes its doors, so open those of its neighbour. Since the closing of Restaurant Bali in 2011, Kongens Nytorv 19 has undergone a facelift and total renovation at the hands of Samina Babar, who this summer opened her second restaurant under the name of Indian Flavours. The original Indian Flavours can be found on Jyllingevej in Vanløse, and Babar has spent the last eleven months transforming the new city centre location into a restaurant where tourists and locals alike can stop by for ‘the taste of India’. After having spent three years in England where pretty much every Thursday was chicken tikka masala night, Copenhagen’s Indian culinary offerings were dire − both for this reviewer’s wallet and taste buds. A meal for two at most Indian restaurants in this city easily winds up being 600 kroner, and you’ll be hard-pressed finding a decent onion bhaji on the menu. You can imagine, then, my delight upon entering the new Indian Flavours, a centrally-located and family-run restaurant that promises authentic Indian cuisine at affordable prices. My companion and myself were greeted with smiles and “their best table” when we arrived for lunch one Thursday. We were guided to a corner window table looking out onto Kongens Nytorv − a prime spot for people-watching (which that afternoon offered German tourists with maps and backpacks and black-clad Danes leading bicycles interspersed with some more entertaining characters). Indian Flavours truly holds up on their promise of a price-worthy menu, offering both buffet and an a la carte option for lunch and dinner. Their lunch buffet, at only 69kr every day of the week, is priced to rival the affordability of their soon-to-be-neighbour McDonald’s, and yet nothing could be further from a greasy food fast chain than this. Indian Flavours’ cosy interior boasts an East-meets-West décor: high decorated ceilings and classically Scandinavian-panelled white walls alongside royal-red, colonial-style plush chairs and colourful Indian artwork make for a peaceful, homely atmosphere that makes the bustle of the Metro construction outside feel a million miles away. Having sampled the buffet on an earlier visit (many, many helpings of the beef curry were consumed), we opted to try dishes from the a la cart menu, starting off as any Indian meal should with poppadoms and chutney. With this came a mango lassi − a yoghurtbased fruit drink that cooled my throat after the deliciously spicy hot mint chutney. For appetisers, we received fish and

As if the food wasn’t enough to entertain you, there are people-watching opportunities on Kongens Nytorv

prawn pakoras, the Indian answer to the increasingly popular Japanese tempura. The prawn one had a perfect thin coating of batter, flash-fried and crispy, yet I was still able to see the pink of the prawn. Our main course consisted of spiced basmati rice, garlic naan and three curries: Butter chicken (a bestseller from their Vanløse restaurant), Lamb korma, and Homemade goat’s cheese in spinach and peas. As my companion raved about the zesty korma, I couldn’t get enough of the spinach from the southern region of India, which was beautifully creamy, mild yet flavourful.

With a belly as full as mine, I was relieved when my server offered me the option of a chai tea instead of dessert. This isn’t the sweet, cinammony lattes you get at a baresso, but a spicy, freshly-made broth that can warm the coldest of hearts. Part of the Indian Flavours dining experience is that of taking a journey: from the cold, Copenhagen sidewalk into an Indian haven, where the journey continues through the cuisine, with dishes from the entire region on the menu. Babar, who can be seen behind the bar or greeting guests dressed in a beau-

tiful sari, was herself born in Pakistan to Indian parents and came to Denmark aged 18. This international amalgamation stretches onto the plate, with many of the recipes originating from Babar’s own mother. Flavours from throughout India, Denmark and Pakistan intermingle to create a truly new and exciting dining experience − one that can be yours starting at just 69kr per sitting.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking the will to live LUKE RICHARDSON

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (11) Dir: Bill Condon; US fantasy, 2012, 110 mins; Kristin Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Dakota Fanning, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Michael Sheen, Peter Facinelli Premiered November 15 Playing Nationwide


HETHER YOU love it or hate it, one cannot deny The Twilight Saga’s place in the cultural zeitgeist. Both an enormously lucrative franchise and a universally renowned critical disaster, it’s all set to come to a close with Breaking Dawn - Part 2, and I, for one, cannot wait to put the final nail in the coffin. Picking up from where Part 1 finished off, Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan awakens after a traumatic childbirth as a newly-dead woman. Not only is she now a mother, she has made the eternal transition from human to vampire. She goes through Dracula boot camp: learning how to hunt for dinner, fight, and partake in superhuman sex with her bitey husband Edward (Pattinson). Struggling with the typical teething issues of motherhood to the young Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), Bella’s former love interest, werewolf Jacob (Lautner), doggedly lingers around, still forlorn over her decision to dump him two films back. When gossip spreads that the newlyweds have given birth to an immortal child, a series of contrived misunderstandings occur. It all culminates when the vampire overlords, known as the Volturi, head to the family’s forest hideaway for a sacrificial battle of good vs evil. Assembling a handful of vampire covens from across the world to help prove Renesmee’s human innocence, the Cullens must either rectify the hearsay, or be prepared to fight to the death to save their ‘immortal’ daughter’s life.

It looks cosy now, but soon Bella and Edward will have one hormonal vampire-hybrid teen on their hands, itching for revenge after being named Renesmee

It’s quite amazing to see how drastically the franchise has changed in such a short period. Looking back to 2008, the first Twilight movie was nothing more than a saccharine, emolove tale in a fantastical framework, carried gracefully by the fresh-faced cast members, Pattinson and Stewart. By the time we reach the threat of an imminent vampire apocalypse four years later in Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the characters may have matured over time, but the acting is still just as amateur. Stewart has rapidly transformed from a prudish nymph to an unbelievable Joan of Arc battleaxe, whilst

Pattinson’s mildly enigmatic Edward has become so narratively translucent that he’s left lingering in the background. Worst of all, the muscle-flexing Lautner is more broody, insolent and annoying than ever. Amongst these clichéd characterisations, Michael Sheen’s turn as Aro, the leader of the Voturi, is knowingly ridiculous, camp and sinister. He may be in the saga just for the money, but at least he’s enjoying himself. Unfortunately, I wasn’t. Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is being marketed as the brawny, fatalistic crescendo to the saga. Unfortunately,

evocative score to fill the dead silence. These corny moments would be bearable if this was the first outing of the series, but after four films one would have thought that the production crew would have delivered some sort of mini-masterpiece. With a disloyal ‘gotcha!’ big finish, everything about Breaking Dawn - Part 2 feels incidental, incoherent and incomplete. It may be the end for Edward, Jacob and Bella, but the introduction of some new blood characters leaves the Twilight door open for potential spin-offs. Now there’s a scary thought.

Let’s hope this spring’s not eternal Hope Springs (11) Dir: David Frankel; US romcom, 2012, 100 mins; Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, Steve Carell, Mimi Rogers Premiered November 15 Playing nationwide


Streep and Jones look as mortified by the sex scenes as we are

director Bill Condon plays it safe, with the raunchy moments curtailed, and the final showdown comprised of excessive cutaway shots and cheap special effects of dismembered heads and limbs being flung at the screen (thankfully, without 3D). As is standard with the saga, Breaking Dawn - Part 2’s maladroit script and lacklustre direction is the biggest problem. Like a fatuous teenage soap opera, each scene ends in excruciatingly melodramatic fashion: with a character saying something poignant, striking a pose, looking mournfully into the distance and waiting for the

OPE SPRINGS is a textbook case of false marketing. A quick glimpse of the trailer makes the latest film from director David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada) look like a syrupy sex romp with golden oldies Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones. Beneath the few slapstick jokes and sarcastic jibes, however, lies a clumsily mournful tale of

relationship turmoil. Streep plays 60-something housewife Kay. After a mundane 31st wedding anniversary with inscrutable husband Arnold (Jones), she books them into a weeklong intensive marriage counselling class in a little Maine port town called Hope Springs. After an argumentative journey, the pair share their marital gripes in front of the eager-eared psychologist Bernie Feld (a surprisingly straight-faced Steve Carell). It’s a last-ditched attempt to rekindle the fire of love, but is it already burned out? Hope Springs is at its best during the counselling session scenes. Unfortunately, Feld then sends the couple out on repeti-

tive intimacy exercises, which are gross attempts at failed bawdy comedy. Short on laughs, Hope Springs is certainly not a dramatic heavyhitter either. Although they are going through counselling, there is nothing titillating about their marriage: no misdemeanours or illegitimate love children, no cruel intentions ... Their banality makes them a relatively realistic old couple, but not an interesting cinematic one. The performances are perfectly serviceable, if stale. Kay is free-spirited, fun, and embodies that same level of independency that has made Streep such a versatile screen presence. Jones plays to type as the boring old

fart Arnold, who is more content in staying in watching the Golf Channel than socialising with the outside world. Although they are trying to fix their marriage, I couldn’t help but want Kay to run away and be the uncompromising, fun character she is desperate to be. Just like the director’s previous effort Marley & Me, Hope Springs fails to provide enough laughs for its audience to feel comfortable dealing with such an uncomfortable subject. The bungling script reduces the movie to nothing more than 100 minutes of old people bickering, crying and attempting to have sex. Let’s hope it doesn’t catch on. LUKE RICHARDSON

New this Week Room 237 (15) Dir: Rodney Ascher; US doc, 2012, 102 mins Documentary film-maker Rodney Ascher delves into one of the most-beloved horror films of all-time, namely Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and, with the help of five hard-core Shining fans, explores some of the many symbolic interpretations surrounding the film. Most of it is far-fetched and absurd, but all of it entertaining! LL

Book Your Tickets The Act of Killing (15) Dir: Joshua Oppenheimer; UK/ Indo doc, 2012, 115 mins When the Indonesian government was overthrown by the military in 1965, local gangster Anwar Congo and his friends were appointed death squad leaders, helping the army to kill an estimated one million ethnic Chinese, alleged communists and intellectuals. In this documentary, the perpetrators are asked to act out their killings, with some interesting results. LL

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 Forget the latter Brosnan follies, the much maligned Quantum of Solace and even fan-favorite Casino Royale because, for the first time in nearly two decades, nobody is doing it better. MW

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

The Dark Knight Rises (11) Dir: Christopher Nolan; US action, 2012, 165 mins; Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Anne Hathaway With the arrival of Bane (Hardy), a terrorist hell-bent on ‘liberating’ Gotham before reducing it to rubble, Batman (Bale) is forced out of exile to once again take on the role as Gotham’s Dark Knight. Nolan retains the delicate balance of building a credible reality while remaining respectful to the comic book origins, and as he departs from the Batman franchise, he leaves his reputation as a master filmmaker and the general state of comic book cinema in the best shape they’ve ever been. MW

Avoid like the Plague 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

Ted (15) Dir: Seth MacFarlane; US comedy, 2012, 106 mins; Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Seth MacFarlane A tale of Peter Pan-esque protracted male adolescence and ‘broversus-ho’ ethics, this is a film that squarely relies on the comic potential of random flotsam and jetsam pop culture, tongue-in-cheek offensiveness and state-of-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

Also Playing 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

Keep the Lights On (15) Dir: Ira Sachs; US drama, 2012, 101 mins; Thue Lindhart, Zachary Booth, Marilyn Neimark, Paprika Steen Lindhart gives a solid performance in his first dramatic English-speaking lead role, but an overly ambitious story and a meandering latter third keep this film from reaching its full potential. MW

Argo (15) Dir: Ben Affleck; US thriller, 2012, 120 mins; Ben Affleck, John Goodman, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, Clea Duvall, Tate Donovan, Victor Garber While Affleck has gone to some lengths to deliver a restrained and tasteful film, the script itself is determined to show off, with the climax taking every opportunity to ratchet up the drama quite shamelessly. It might make for highly entertaining cinema, but falls short in convincing us of the narrative’s authenticity. For a film about disguise, this film masquerades as one belonging to the dangerous fringes of political filmmaking, but reveals itself to be quite mainstream and, like Affleck himself, a little more ordinary that it really should be. 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. DS

Sinister (15) Dir: Scott Derrickson; US horror, 2012, 110 mins; Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onoofrio, Michael Hall D’Addario, Juliet Rylance What Sinister lacks in innovation it makes up for in jump-inducing frights and gruesome imagery. This flick will definitely please horror fans but might not be the thing for the squeamish. LL

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

Crossfire Hurricane DR2, Tue 20:30

CRITICISING how many kids somebody has is a taboo – unless they’re Catholic. Because while we dare not admit it, many of us think people with large families are planet resource-sapping idiots. Sure, we invariably live in the city where there isn’t a harvest to reap, but we called it quits at 2.0. Snip, snip. Still, when you hear about a couple with five-year-old twins and four-year-old triplets in the same school year, like one of the subjects of Meet the Multiples (DR1, Wed 20:40), your first thought isn’t: “How dare they!”, it’s “Less than three months … after twins! I had to wait over a year after just one!” But in the end, you’re the winner, albeit a little smug. Lie back and marvel at the chaos. Other people’s misery has never been this good.

In a way, the Rolling Stones should have stopped at 2.0 decades. Fifty years old this year, Crossfire Hurricane, which only premiered at the cinema last month, tells the story of how the world’s most hated group became the most loved. It’s apt that the last scene is footage of the band’s Still Life tour in 1981, but it’s deliberate. The band acted as producers and didn’t want to focus on the last 30 years of relentless touring and forgettable records. Will the same happen to JK Rowling? Find out in Writing For Grown-Ups (BBC World, Sat 22:30 & Sun 17:30) in which she talks about her first adult (ooh er, Hermione) novel ‘The Casual Vacancy’.

Elsewhere, Out of the Frying Pan is a fun BBC2 cookery show about two likeable rogues; there’s another chance to see the entire first season of Modern Family (TV2 Zulu, Sun 11:05), the whole of Jackal series Carlos (SV2, Sat 21:45), and the first two episodes of BBC’s 2009 drama DR2, Tue 20:30 Crossfire Hurricane Emma (BBC Ent, Sat 21:00) starring Romola Garai; there’s theme evenings celebrating our relationships with Mohammed Ali (DRK, Mon 20:00) and shit (DR2, Sat 20:00); meet 400 dollar billionaires in China’s Super Rich (BBC World, Sun 18:30); and find out they weren’t joking in 101 Ways to Leave a Gameshow (TV2 Zulu, Sun 21:00), but we defy you to find anything actually funny.
