BEN HAMILTON

ONE OF THE tragedies of modern living is the decline in popularity of the Christmas card. Like newspapers, they will die out when the generation who sends them does. My decision to stop coincided with me joining Facebook. When I moved here in 2003, I thought sending cards was a great way to stay in touch with former friends and colleagues, and of course family, from my home country. But now they’re all friends of mine on Facebook, so what’s the point? Sure it grated that for every 20 I sent out, I only got seven in return, but since my decision to stop, I’ve been in comeback mode, and by 2016 I expect to be on level terms. And besides, most people are so hopeless at writing them: they either say too little or too much. If you’re going to go to the trouble of buying the cards and stamps, tracking down the address and licking the envelopes, why on Earth do you then just want to sign your name with no trace of the human spirit you’re supposed to be expressing?

But God forbid that you go in the other direction and include a photocopy of your family’s progress report for 2012: “Tom has been accepted into Sandhurst, but before starting his cadetship couldn’t resist the chance to holiday in Zanzibar where he was cast in a new film about the early life of Freddy Mercury – some pop-star chappie we hadn’t heard of, but Antonia had.” Don’t you know that half your friends will read this togehter aloud, screaming with laughter at your pompousness – with my hand on my heart, it’s the only adult memory I have of bonding with my mother. Anyway, another Christmas in Denmark beckons. It’s not quite Alzheimer’s, but I’ve lost count of the number of times my parents have invited and uninvited me and the family to Christmas, and this will be my ninth in a row seeing it all end on December 24. Still, it’s all the more time to plan New Year’s Eve (G2 for details), watch TV (G16 for a pretty uninspiring line-up) and take in a few shows (G7 for a preview of Hej Jude) and films (G14). Yeah, I miss Christmas cards: writing them, not getting them. Using Facebook to send a greeting isn’t the same. It’s like sending a photocopy of your family’s progress – cue the hysterical laughter in the background of rare family bonding.

Tivoli for New Year’s Eve

Tivoli, Vesterbrogade 3, Cph K; 17:00-00:30; www.tivoli.dk Experience Tivoli like you’ve never before. For the first time, the gardens and grounds are open until the wee hours.

Put on your pearls, step into your swingiest dress and spend the last day of the year like you’ve stepped back in time. Take your pick from three dinner menus and, after watching the fireworks from the canal, dance the night away.

Classic Copenhagen Fireworks

Cph K and Cph V; 00:00 until all the fireworks are gone No New Year’s is complete without fireworks. If you’re in Copenhagen for the night, it would be blasphemous to sit this one out. The skies of the city will be a technicolour wonder of aweinspiring lights and sounds. Danes all over will be out on the streets with their loved ones to get this front-row experience. Don’t miss it!

1990s at Cafe Kellerdirk

Cafe Kellerdirk, a theatre cafe, offers an all-night open bar that will be serving the decade’s classics: white and black Russians, cosmos and mojitos. A live band will bring you to the stroke of midnight – with champagne and cake – and you’ll spend the first day of the new year dancing until you drop.

What dragged you away from your home in 2012 – and was it any good? The InOut team pay tribute to the shows, performers, festivals and events that impressed them the most over the last 12 months.

Top Anglo theatre

Top Anglo event

1. Tiger Lillies perform Hamlet

Top event

1. Saint Patrick’s three-legged race

Top Art

5. French Affair at Docken

1. Louisiana Literature

American performance artist Mary Coble’s massive exploration of an old shipyard in Nakskov, in Lolland in southern Denmark, included a durational performance, new photographic work and giant shipping flags.

The Dance to Go performances are a great invention in which all the seats in the auditorium cost just 150kr. Last spring’s version combined Flemming Flindt’s Enetime (The Lesson), George Balanchine’s version of Tchaikovsky’s Pas de Deux and The Concert by Jerome Robbins.

1. Dance to Go

Miklos Sazbo

1. ‘Manuevering’ at Overgaden

The city was crying out for a quality book festival that didn’t think all world literature started and ended with Paul Auster, and in just three years, Louisiana Literature has answered our prayers. Headlining this year (just 150 kroner for all four days), rock legend Patti Smith gave some unforgettable readings – a real treat.

The organisers of this Francophile’s paradis brought Gallic gourmet gems to Docken. Parlez-vous Francais? Non, but maybe next year!

2. The Seeress Prophecy

2. St George’s at Sankt Nikolai’s

2. Fashion Festival

7. Puppet Junior

Like Louisiana Literature, the Fashion Festival has in a short space of time become something quite substantial, offering nonindustry fashionistas a myriad of events to make them feel like they’re really participating in Fashion Week instead of just looking in, thinking about blagging their way into shows and parties.

Under-rated by those with an aversion to either children’s festivals or puppets or both, the occasion was once again one of the highlights of the year.

This ambitious survey showed rarely seen early work by celebrated European female artists from the inter-war years including Hannah Höch and Dora Marr.

8. Copenhagen Book Forum The festival may be trailing in the wake of Louisiana Literature, but it upped its game in 2012, attracting an impressive selection of authors including Ken Follett.

3. ‘Ruth Ewan’ at Charlottenborg Scottish artist Ruth Ewan’s exploration of the utopic power of music involved live performances by a brass band, an interview with an ethno-musicologist, workshops with imaginative children in Christiana, and a large collection of instruments collected from citizens around Denmark.

4. Old Times Why Not Theatre’s Angela Heath-Larsen and Sue Hanson Styles joined forces with That Theatre’s Ian Burns for what is probably Harold Pinter’s most ambiguous play. Theirs is a collaboration that we hope will run and run. BH

4. Burns Night at the Dubliner Nothing lifts the gloom of late January like Burns Night, and the Dubliner’s event, which is quickly becoming a city institution, had them dancing on the tables again. Scotland forever! 5. Irish Day at the Races All a bit biased to the British Isles, so here’s … hang on, how could we leave out the Irish Rover’s Irish Day at the Races, the race meet that tends to always welcome in the Danish summer. It didn’t this year, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t another winner. Ben Hamilton

9. Buster Film Festival

2. ‘Avantgardens Kvinder (Women of the Avant Garde) 1920-1940’ at Louisiana

4. ‘If One Thing Moves, Everything Moves’ at Charlottenborg The country’s biggest music festival recruited Denmark’s favourite international singing star, Bruce Springsteen, for this year’s affair, and the Boss didn’t disappoint. For three beautiful hours on a July evening, he transcended both time and place to deliver what was the festival’s standout performance.

Balanchine & Stravinsky was an evening of dazzling abstract beauty that celebrated the collaboration between choreographer George Balanchine and composer Igor Stravinsky. It consisted of the early neoclassical Apollo, the tightly knit Agon and the jazzy Symphony in Three Movements. 3. Den gyldne hane (The Golden Cockrel) A fun performance with breathtakingly beautiful costumes. Former Royal Danish Ballet dancer and today’s internationally renowned choreographer Alexei Ratmansky was responsible for the great choreography of this production. 4. Tornerose (The Sleeping Beauty)

Always refreshing to see a kids festival that doesn’t patronise its target customers, and the result is one adults can enjoy too. At only 15kr a movie, it truly is quids in for kids. 10. Irish Festival

4. Distortion

Distortion bounced back in 2012 to silence its critics with a well-organised and extremely enjoyable five days of relentless fun and music, and it even managed to clean up afterwards. A job well done all-round!

2. Balanchine & Stravinsky

henrik stenberg

If ever there’s an event that will take you back to Blighty in the blink of an eye, it’s the St Alban’s church fete in August where the best of British gather to enjoy creamed teas, show their knobbly knees and shoot the breeze. Oh, and it has the best bookstore in town.

3. Springsteen at Roskilde Scanpix

Vivienne McKee’s annual Crazy Christmas Cabaret got even crazier this year when she decided to stage a Hitchcock-style movie script as opposed to the traditional CCC. Sociopathic Danes, lederhosenloving Nazis, cross-dressers and a terrible Swedish accent made this year crazier than ever. LL

Clive Thain

3. St Albans Fete at Churchillparken

Kai Buchner

3. Crazy Christmas Cabaret’s Hitchcock-Up!

Thomas Petri

Not the best-attended event of all time, but ten out of ten for effort. Few present will forget the horseback gallantry and damsel snatching re-enactment, plus the madcap homage to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Only the English!

5. Cinderella The CTC in January showed that pantomime isn’t just a graveyard for washed-up soap stars and, in their absence, is exceedingly good fun for all the family. BH linn lemhag & Ben Hamilton

6. Gay Pride The hottest weekend of the year, both literally and figuratively – what’s not to like about heat?

costin radu

Another year and another record number of participants. Under the stewardess of Family Kelleher, and with the help of the city’s Irish pubs The Globe, the Dubliner, Kennedy’s, and the Shamrock Inn, this event never fails to draw a smile out of the watching public. Irish, legless and leg-tied, and proud. Per Morten Abrahamsen

Yorick is back! Martyn Jacques of the Tiger Lillies, court jester extraordinaire, wowed audiences this spring in the world premiere of perhaps the most macabre version of Hamlet yet. Praise is also due to Republique’s inventive artistic director Martin Tulinius – together they have created a musical destined to be a worldwide hit. BH

Republique again! Delicious food, endless glasses of wine, and talented performances bring you into a world of fantasy and myth on this Nordic food expedition, where the audience were brought from the Earth’s creation to the fires of Ragnarok. LL

Top Ballet

Few could believe their eyes when they saw Paul Brady’s name down on the list of performers for this year’s Irish Festival, but there he was, arguably Ireland’s most influential singer-songwriter – a total coup for the festival organisers. ben hamilton

Danish artist Joachim Koester’s exploration of esoterica and altered states was presented in an immersive installation environment that owed much to theatre design and transformed the exhibition hall. 5. ‘The Kiss’ at Overgaden German artist Hito Steyerl’s innovative installation combined video, digital imaging technology, sculpture and archival material to address a mysterious, violent abduction that happened during the Bosnian War in the 1990s. bonnie fortune

The Royal Danish Ballet showed a Christmas ballet this year that made their ensemble shine: The Sleeping Beauty in a traditional staging by contemporary British choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. 5. Kameliadamen (The Lady of the Camellias) John Neumeier’s choreographic interpretation of Alexandre Dumas’ dramatic story about the demimonde of mid-19th century Paris is now in the repertoire of the Royal Danish Ballet.

Ernie Wilkins’ Almost Big Band XMas Special feat Gitte Hænning CPH Jazzhouse, Niels Hemmingsens Gade 10, Cph K; 21:00; 200kr If this is your first Christmas here in Denmark, you’ll have picked up on the extent to which the Danes hang on to their holiday traditions – from being forcibly made to craft marzipan decorations to drinking the lamentable Gammel Dansk over the holidays. This also filters through into the music business with heaps of locally-based groups playing annual Christmas shows almost hourly. Ernie Wilkins and company are newcomers to the trend, offering yet another ‘hyggelit’ jazz show to the city. Playing Ellington and Stray Horn’s seminal version of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, the enormous band will bring a touch of New York to town.

Nelson Can Rust, Guldbergsgade 8, Cph N; 20:00; 60kr In a surprise mid-holiday concert, the all-female Aarhus punk trio Nelson Can – led by Signe Signe Signe, Selina Jane and Maria Jane – have been getting the thumbs-up from the Danish music media of late. Not dressed like your old-style punks nor thrashing away at their guitars, their roughly-produced deep beats are like the sugary dessert to any meaty Black Keys tune. The group have had a decent year promoting their new material, including their charming single ‘Apple Pie’. Appearances at this year’s Iceland Airwaves Festival, Roskilde and several support gigs for The Black Keys – helpful given the similarity between their music and that of the Tennessee outfit – have put the girls in good stead for the new year.

Benny Holst Trio Mojo Bar, Løngangstræde 21C, Cph K; 21:30; 100kr Now almost 70, bluesman Holst is one of Copenhagen’s longest serving musicians, having often been compared to Bob Dylan, along with other historic performers. Performing alongside him tonight are guitarist Jacob Rathje and violinst Martin Andersen, whose input will give Holst’s vocals depth and a platform on which to work. The major Danish music publication Gaffa have even gone so far as to rate Holst’s onstage performances at five out of six stars, and with his extensive discography of classic blues ballads, Holst could well be the remedy to your postChristmas blues yet again, having played his special Christmas session for the past half a decade.

Bobo Moreno + Bo Stief feat Ole Kock Hansen Jazzhus Montmartre, Store Regnegade 19A, Cph K; 20:00; 285kr; www.jazzhusmontmartre.dk Stief remains one of Scandinavia’s most illustrious jazz bassists after decades of performing. Joining Stief onstage will be his stepson, one of Denmark’s few celebrated vocalists, Moreno, along with the veteran jazz pianist Hansen, another one of Montmartre’s revered performers. Tonight’s concert will pay homage to a host of legendary songwriters including renditions of Lennon/McCartney, Cole Porter and Paul Simon songs, to name just a few. There will be a repeat concert tomorrow evening for those otherwise engaged.

Ridin’ Thumb Amager Bio, Øresundsvej 6, Cph S; 21:00; 215kr One of Denmark’s best known soul-funk bands, Ridin’ Thumb is led by founding guitarists Martin Finding and Nicolai Halberg and their primary vocalist since 1997, Jonas Winge. Equipped with an orchestrasized band, their discography takes on a whole new identity on stage. Abundant with energetic, uplifting and funky tracks with song titles such as ‘Party Down’ and ‘Set Your Mind Free’ that rarely sell you short on the slap bass, this is an annual Christmas show that regulars will surely turn up for.

Pierre Dørge New Jungle Orchestra feat Yolo Tchicai & Jesper Christensen CPH Jazzhouse, Niels Hemmingsensgade 10, Cph K; 20:00; 210kr This is the magma from which avant-garde jazz is formed. Led by influential Danish bandleader Dørge, the New Jungle Orchestra is the brainchild of a project that sought to combine west African, Asian, and traditional jazz elements to give rise to a playful, cosmopolitan and refreshing sound. Their 30-year run attests to both their appeal and ongoing creativity. The orchestra consists of an impressive nine members, ranging from percussion to piano,with the added bonus of surrealist dancer Tchicai and wordsmith Christensen.

music: Year in Review Inout | The cph post entertainment guide

21 December 2012 - 4 January 2013

Top International Albums of the Year as selected by Justin Cremer

Best of the rest: 6. Deftones, Koi No Yokan 7. Pelican, Ataraxia/Taraxis 8. The Fierce and the Dead, On VHS 9. Cat Power, Sun 10. Brother Ali, Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color

5. John Talabot, Fin Barcelona’s John Talabot has somehow managed to weave a mix of house disco and indie together with the panache of a true innovator. Fin is Barcelona in an album: vehemently unique and ice cool albeit welcoming and accessible at the same time. Best of the rest: 6. Hot Chip, In Our Heads 7. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Here 8. Chromatics, Kill For Love 9. Grimes, Visions 10. Orbital, Wonky

1. Bruce Springsteen, Roskilde Festival, July 7 In a show to a massive and adoring Danish audience, this was a very personal and strangely American experience for me. Having grown up in the Midwest in the 1980s, Bruce is etched into the fabric of my life. Seeing him in the flesh fully master the arena setting was nothing short of amazing.

3. Smashing Pumpkins, Oceania Smashing Pumpkins’ ninth album, Oceania, is everything a fan of the band would expect it to be: beautifully melodic, lyrical and melancholic. Frontman Billy Corgan’s footprints are ever-present, and each song stands on its own. It is a beautiful album by a resilient band that has withstood its share of controversial line-up changes. 4. Dave Matthews Band, Away From the World Away From the World is DMB’s eighth studio album and it shows, once again, that the band can do no wrong. DMB’s signature blend of jazz, folk and world music is as solid as ever, and Matthews himself is at the top of his game. Reunited with their ‘90s producer, Steve Lillywhite, DMB has put out yet another brilliant record that caters to the romantic and the introspective, without losing its edge. 5. The xx, Coexist The xx started out with a bang, winning the Mercury Prize in 2010 for their debut album, XX. The band’s second album, Coexist, is as compelling as the first, as the British indie-pop trio stuck to their magic recipe, keeping the songs as simple and as minimalistic as possible. It is a solid second album from a very promising band. Best of the rest: 6. Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Psychedelic Pill 7. Bob Dylan, Tempest 8. Bruce Springsteen, Wrecking Ball 9. Lee Fields, Faithful Man 10. Green Day, ¡Uno!

2. My Morning Jacket Store Vega, June 26 MMJ had been on my personal ‘to-see list’ for quite some time, and clearly on Copenhagen’s too. Playing their first ever gig in the city, the Kentuckians put on a show to remember, whether it was delivering rip-roaring guitar solos or acoustic numbers in which Jim James’s hauntingly beautiful voice entranced the crowd. It was well worth the wait.

3. Mastodon Store Vega, January 16 While there might be a lot of Roskilde Festival shows in these best-of lists, this performance by Mastodon blew away their 2011 outing on the Orange Stage. The Georgia metal beasts blasted with boundless energy through a two-hour show that was heavy on tracks from last year’s The Hunter. It was loud, fast, hard and crazy – in other words, just what the crowd wanted. 4. Wilco Falconer Salen, February 28 I’ve seen Wilco several times, but never like this. In a seated concert at Falconer Salen (come on, sitting at a rock concert is lame), the Chicago veterans treated fans to a career-showcasing gig that also featured a bit of awkward interaction between Jeff Tweedy and his Danish crowd. 5. Hank 3, Roskilde Festival, July 6 A show that leaves you with a distinct ‘Holy shit!’ feeling is something of a rarity. But this concert most certainly did, particularly when Williams let the hair down, put a bandana over his face and the whole thing went from a honky tonk to thrash metal show. Only somewhat familiar with Hank 3 before this, I left a big fan of his unique Hellbilly style.

as selected by Claudia Santos

1. Bruce Springsteen, Roskilde Festival, July 7 Bruce Springsteen’s three-hour performance at Roskilde Festival this year was the stuff of legends. His energy, musicianship and chemistry with the audience was amazing. At the age of 62, The Boss had full control over the massive crowd and turned the concert into an unforgettable street party.

1. The Roots Roskilde Festival, July 7 The Roots are what hip-hop used to be way back when. The Philly natives shun the pathetic self-referential, revenge-tinged bollocks and swap it for purely eclectic, instrument-rich genius at its most refined. This is what the legendary crew managed to pull off on Roskilde’s massive Orange Stage. 2. Klumben & Raske Penge Roskilde Festival, July 3 Roskilde’s bookers must have had their hearts in their mouths as the chaos unfolded at Klumben & Raske Penge’s show at Pavillion Junior. The stage is a breeding ground for some of Denmark’s soon-to-be-huge bands and rarely gets packed over capacity. This show was one of a kind however, crammed long before the dancehall dons even set foot on stage.

2. Mark Lanegan, Amager Bio, March 17 The Mark Lanegan live experience is as intense and raw as his notorious whiskey voice. His talent calls for no gimmicks or shenanigans; what you see is what you get and what the Amager Bio audience got was a beautifully haunting performance that proved once again that less can most certainly be more.

3. Michael Kiwanuka Lille Vega, April 27 BBC Sound of 2012 winner Michael Kiwanuka’s soulful music has drawn comparisons to legends such as Otis Reading. Genuinely talented and refreshingly humble, Kiwanuka delivered his best making his debut on Danish soil at Lille Vega. This show paved the way for a second Danish appearance a few weeks ago, this time at Store Vega. 4. Coldplay Parken Stadium, August 28 Despite their latest album being something of a disappointment, Coldplay’s live shows repeatedly prove why they are one of the best bands around. Glow-in-the dark bracelets, giant balloons, four huge screens and an explosion of special light effects made optimal use of the stadium space, so a good show was always guaranteed. 5. The Vaccines Pumpehuset, October 24 In a country where audiences are, in the words of Mike Skinner of The Streets, “almost impossible to please”, The Vaccines set Pumpehuset aflame with their dangerously contagious infusion of driven indie-rock. Props to the audience for dropping their usual poised appearances.

3. Lee Fields & The Expressions Loppen, November 17 Feeling funky, sexy and ready to party are the main side-effects of a Lee Fields concert. The showmanship and vocal skills of the ‘faithful man’ were out of this world, taking the audience through an intense, colourful journey that satisfied all palates, from sugar to spice. There was dancing, jumping, clapping and singing along, and by the end of the show there wasn’t a soul in the venue who hadn’t been electrified by the performance. 4. Machine Head, Roskilde Festival, July 8 Machine Head are a classic example of an old-school metal band that knows how to rock the pants off an audience, regardless of whether that audience is ready for it or not. The Orange stage’s shameful zombie-state didn’t slow down lead singer Rob Flynn, who was like a mad hurricane capable of destroying everything in its path. Michael Caddy Søndergaard

5. Down, Down IV Part I The Purple EP There’s something about Phil Anselmo. Yeah, he seems kind of like a dick, but he just oozes cool. And the former Pantera frontman has weathered age better than most, sounding terrific at the age of 44 in what is supposed to be the first of a series of EPs from the Southern sludge metal masters.

4. Grizzly Bear, Shields Shields is as experimental and as contemplative an album as you’ll hear this year. Rock/electronica à la New Yorkers Ratatat meets alt-rock influences not too unlike those of Icelandic heavyweights Sigur Rós in a marriage woven in the clouds.

1. Deftones, Koi No Yokan Christmas came early for Deftones fans this year when the band dropped their seventh studio album, Koi No Yokan, in November. The album is intense and dynamic and remains true to the core of the band’s sound. The songs range from heavy to dreamy, giving the album a magical flow that can be thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end.

2. Jack White, Blunderbuss The genius of Jack White is legendary and 2012 saw the artist spread his wings and further develop his craft, this time on his own. His anticipated debut solo album, Blunderbuss, is edgy, bluesy and wonderfully diverse. White uses a wide array of instruments and musicians, reaching a whole new level both musically and vocally.

4. Jack White, Blunderbuss If this list had been made earlier in the year, Blunderbuss would have been at the top. Upon its release, I was spinning White’s first official solo venture repeatedly. Though months then passed with scant a listen, late-year replays reminded me that this is the real deal. A solid and timeless rock album by one of the best who does it today.

3. Mumford & Sons, Babel Outdoing a debut album like 2009’s Sigh No More seemed a daunting if not almost impossible hurdle for the now familiar Mumford & Sons. Babel keeps the best of what we remember from its predecessor, which is rare for a second album. Little wonder that their 2013 show at Falconer Salen has sold out so quickly.

3. Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Americana Based on the strength of not only this collection of reworked American folk songs, but also October’s Psychedelic Pill, Uncle Neil made a triumphant return with his old pals in Crazy Horse. With Americana, this 67-yearold Canadian sure managed to deliver this Denmark-residing Yank a rocking infusion of much-needed home.

2. Beach House, Bloom The aptly named Bloom represents a coming of age for the captivating, soul-stroking music of this enigmatic duo from Baltimore. Their fourth album is: a journey through time and space rather than solely an amalgamation of songs.

Rasmus B. S. Hansen

2. Marriages, Kitsune EP As the rest of my list attests, I’m a bit of a sucker for expansive, instrumental post-rock. But let’s face it, sometimes you want some vocals. That’s what we got here when 3/5 of the members of Red Sparowes decided that guitarist Emma Ruth Rundle should sing. Her voice perfectly complements the music, though it must be said that the standout track of this EP is its lone instrumental, ‘White Noise’.

1. Of Monsters and Men, My Head is An Animal The epic rise of Iceland sextet Of Monsters and Men introduced the world the genre of chamber pop. Hailed as the new Arcade Fire by some, in truth they sound more like a witty mix between Indie-rock starlets Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and popular folk rockers Mumford & Sons. Their debut album is a diamond in the rough and may be Iceland’s best export yet.

Best Concerts of 2012

1. Baroness, Yellow & Green Many Baroness fans, or fans of heavy music in general, didn’t know what to make of this expansion – and yes, dare I say it, softening – of the Georgia rockers’ sound. Was it even metal? Who cares. With the ambitious double album Yellow & Green, Baroness dispensed with labels and clearly displayed that they are one of the best rock bands out there. Period.

5. Helmet Lille Vega, March 24 Celebrating the 20th anniversary of their classic album, Meantime, this was an explosive evening, with band and fans equally excited. Helmet’s performance was extremely powerful and the band was as tight as ever. It was an intense reunion and a serious adrenaline rush.

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.

GOING UNDERGROUND

Events International NEW Christmas Market Højbro Plads, Cph K; ends Sun, open Fri 10:00-20:00, Sat-Sun 10:00-21:00 In a city such as Copenhagen, you don’t want to miss the chance to visit its International Christmas Market.

Are you searching for a special hat for this Christmas? You will find it here – together with gloves, coats and jackets. Complete your Christmas decorations with lights and art-crafted items sold at several stalls! And your kids will get to meet Santa – it’s never too late to convince him you’ve been good.

“...They placed their naked bodies in front of me,” Dennis declares with a stern face and a grandiose voice from the pulpit. “And with their perfectly proportioned testicles swaying before my eyes, they asked: ‘Dennis, will you be our manager, since you possess brilliance like we do?’” He pauses for a second and continues with heightened intensity: “Darkness was vanquished and everything was illuminated and I said: ‘Yes! Because your music consists of love, and together we can climb any mountain – and we had fun, and it was LOL.’” The orchestra enter, pick up their instruments and fill the church with bittersweet tones of loving departure: laughter, tears and a whole lot of dancing – orgasmic. Outside for a breath of smoke, I am approached by a random stranger, Mads, who apparently can’t contain his excitement any longer: “We are maybe a couple of hundred people in there; the rest of the world is missing out on this − it’s insane man!” He speaks rapidly with wide eyes and his head tilted oddly backwards. “I resuscitated Blixa Garbeld at the Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds concert in Ungdomshuset in ‘81. They were so wasted all of them – he even shit himself man!” Pause. Intense stare. “That was an amazing concert, I never thought I would see anything as good as that for the rest of my life, but tonight it happened! They’re amazing man, and everybody else is missing it,” Mads says frantically and rushes back in. A couple of seconds later I snap out of it, close my mouth, blink and rush after him – don’t want to be one of the poor saps who missed the funeral of a lifetime!

The funeral of a lifetime IT IS A COLD and stormy night – actually the wind isn’t that bad, but it is freezing, and the fact that I’m going to a funeral makes it even colder. My favourite underground orchestra is performing their last concert ever and The Funeral, as the event is called, is fittingly taking place in the Hellig Kors Kirke (Church of the Sacred Cross) in Nørrebro. A Key Is A Key are dead. I twist the icy doorknob, put my weight behind it and push open the massive church doors. Huge. Dark. Perfect. The tall, arched ceilings spawn clusters of voluptuous chandeliers and the woodcarved interior and solid stone floors omit a humid and humbling scent of decay. Sounds of muffled conversation and choked weeping mix in the vast church space. “Welcome”, the guy at the door says, marking my hand with a biro – a cross of course. A slight chill shoots down my spine and I pat my pockets for bar money. On each side of the stage, formerly known as the altar, two wooden coffins tower over small groups of weeping young women. Some just moan and look sad, others throw themselves to the ground crying hysterically. The audience is giggling, drinking and instagramming. It’s a good day to die. After a proper fill on cheap rum and wine, I emerge to witness the end part of a eulogy given by Dennis, the former manager of A Key Is A Key, who has ascended the pulpit. The church is packed. The young women are still weeping – loudly.

Least of all in Copenhagen, where later this month Forum will be playing host to the country’s largest-ever theatre concert, Hey Jude, featuring reworked and reimagined music from the legendary Liverpudlian rock band. The show is following in the footsteps of the critically-acclaimed 2009 Come Together production at Gasværket, where such Beatles anthems as ‘Yesterday’, ‘Revolution’, ‘All You Need is Love’ and ‘Eleanor Ribgy’ were for the first time ever readapted to fit the theatrical musings of Nikolaj Cederholm and the company at Gasværket.

cal to punk. Yoko definitively would approve. “The show is for everyone: Beatles fans, theatre concert fans (and those who have never heard of the concept), 12-yearold children and their 90-year-old grandparents,” Cederholm continues. “Hey Jude embraces the whole family and is a great family outing for anyone who loves music and life in general – regardless of age.” Onstage will be The Storm lead singer and X Factor judge Pernille Rosendahl, who will be making her concert theatre debut alongside Cecilie Stenspil and actor Troels Lyby, both currently performing in the musical Next to Normal at Nørrebro Teater. And to all those who loved Come Together, both Jimmy Jørgensen and Mark Linn will be returning to once again tackle The Beatles collection onstage, this time promising an even more psychedelic and no holds barred performance. Considering Jørgensen was hanging by his ankles while floating above the audience singing ‘Across the Universe’ at Gasværket, we can’t even begin to imagine what madness lies in store at Forum!

ITH ITS poetic realism and sickly, spiritual subtext, Yann Martel’s international bestselling novel Life of Pi was once declared unfilmable – until now. Directed by Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’s Ang Lee, this beautiful adventure movie is an absolute must-see, even if the plot stinks. Newcomer Suraj Sharma stars as Piscine Molitor Patel, aka Pi, a well-educated, wistful teenager growing up on the grounds of his family’s zoo in Pondicherry, India. As a curious son of liberal parentage, Pi is fascinated by the religions of the world, studying them in detail, but undecided which is the correct path for him. After finding the answer and his soul mate, his father declares that the family are broke and must relocate to Canada. Boarding a cargo ship with his family and the anaesthetised exotic animals resting in the hull underneath, their journey across the Pacific is disrupted by the perfect storm, which sends the vessel plunging to the seabed. The only human survivor, orphaned Pi is left stranded aboard a lifeboat with a hysterical hyena, wounded zebra, benevolent orangutan and a Bengalese tiger called Richard Parker. You don’t have to be an ethologist to see that Pi’s predicament would cause an infinite number of problems. Once the animals clash, our hero is left as the carnivorous Richard Parker’s final prey. But through his resourcefulness and spirituality, Pi manages to survive the fatal claws of his feline shipmate, and over a period of 227 days, the pair end up forming a remarkable relationship,

Life of Pi’s protagonist has a tiger by the tail and a tiger in his boat

built on companionship, fear and the mutual hope that they will one day be rescued. Words cannot describe how stunning this movie is to look at. With the help of cinematographer Claudio Miranda and a committed special effects team, the Oscar-winning filmmaker behind Brokeback Mountain and the illfated comic-book hero movie Hulk has directed the first ever 3D art film. It’s a bottomless box of visual delights: colours have never been so vivid, landscapes so luscious or 3D so fantastic. Instead of distancing us from the action onscreen,

causing light-loss and nausea, the oncedreaded stereoscopic glasses deepen our engagement with Pi and Parker’s ordeal. In an extraordinary quest, they encounter millions of flying fish skittering past them, phosphorescent jellyfish glowing underneath, a breaching whale gliding across the starry skyline and an island inhabited by 60,000 meerkats. In his debut role, Sharma is fantastic as Pi, able to balance religious fervour, comical flourish and irrepressible charm, even if his supporting catty cast member was almost entirely a digital creation, blended into the live action

seamlessly. It’s incredibly refreshing to see the ironically named Richard Parker never anthropomorphised. He doesn’t talk, nor even exist in the real world, yet his presence in Pi’s life is what saves him, and ultimately the film, from excessive ‘is there a god?’ ruminations. Adapted by screenplay writer David Magee (Finding Neverland), the cinematic spectacle does its best to cloak what is ostensibly a very corny plot, but elements of the baggy original novel still creep in. In typical Forrest Gump style, most of the story unravels through the recollections, of a present-day Pi (played

by Irrfan Khan) in Montreal, who narrates the tale to a curious Canadian novelist (Rafe Spall). It’s a narrative compromise lifted directly from Martel’s novel that tells instead of shows – a thorny branch that jolts the audience back into the mundane world we are all used to, and away from the wonderful realm where we’d rather be. Whilst my atheism was left unscathed, the rapturous aestheticism rekindled my passion for big blockbuster cinema. Life of Pi is a much-needed bit of heart-warming magic during this frosty festive season.

Shih tzu-stealing-psychos spell success, it seems Seven Psychopaths Dir: Martin McDonagh; UK comedy/crime, 2012, 110 mins; Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell Premieres December 25 Playing nationwide

W

ITH A title like Seven Psychopaths, this film will certainly keep you guessing who its lunatics truly are. Seven Psychopaths is the selfaware, postmodern tale of a Hollywood screenwriter named Marty (Farrell) trying to think of ideas for a movie. Presumably, the main character’s name

is meant to refer to the film’s own writer and director, Martin McDonagh of Six Shooter and In Bruges fame. Marty is friends with Billy (Rockwell), who runs a dognapping business alongside his associate Hans (Walken). The immature and demented Billy drags Marty into a strange adventure when he kidnaps the dog of Los Angeles gangster Charlie (Harrelson), a contradictory blend of gangstertough-guy and a man who misses his shih tzu to the point of tears. Considering how frequently the film refers to its own title, it’s hard not to notice the dilemma between going in one direction or another with the plot.

On the one hand, Marty claims to want to make a film about peace and love. This seems at odds with the fact that he simultaneously wants to write a film about psychopaths. Naturally, then, the film delivers a lot of casual violence. Although Psychopaths mentions possibly using a different tactic, these are generally dismissed and mocked. We came for glorified violence, and that’s what we’re going to get! In some ways, the film is just another action film with certain stereotypes and clichés. That said, the script still manages to break the mold. The film’s twists and turns are surprising and inventive. With psychopaths in the mix,

of course, one never really knows what’s going to happen next. The dialogue is also very well-written. For a film about the screenwriting process, the screenplay is refreshingly strong. Christopher Walken delivers his wonderful persona and Rockwell does ‘crazy’ very well, although that’s usually the case with him. Farrell was the only weak link, delivering just enough to get by. This style of storytelling will probably appeal most to those who consider themselves movie lovers – the kinds of people who really want to think about the construction of a film and the universe that a film inhabits.

Book Your Tickets Tyrannosaur (15)

Dir: Paddy Considine; UK drama, 2012, 91 mins; Peter Mullan, Olivia Colman One of the best British kitchen sink dramas of recent years, the plot may be relentlessly miserable, but suggests that the actorturned-director Paddy Considine has a bright future ahead. LR

The Act of Killing (15)

Dir: Joshua Oppenheimer; UK/ Indo doc, 2012, 115 mins The documentary’s masterstroke is revealing its monsters as human, and therefore recognisable. This is how it manages to touch us − and in doing so, the film transcends its medium. MW

Skyfall (11)

Dir: Sam Mendes; UK/US action/thriller, 2012, 143 mins; Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench 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 Man (15)

Avoid like the Plague Think Like A Man (3)

Dir: Tim Story; US rom-com, 2012, 122 mins; Gabrielle Union If you can get over the Victorian-age premise of the film, you might be able to overlook the wafer-thin script. LL

End of Watch (11)

Dir: David Ayer; US action/ thriller, 2012, 109 mins; Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena In the end, neither the mocking brotherly banter nor the racial politics writer/director Ayer attempts to weave serve this over-simplified story of good versus evil. AS

The Possession (15)

Dir: Ole Bornedal; US horror, 2012, 92 mins; Natasha Calis, Jeffrey Dean Morgan The only twist in an otherwise by-the-book exorcism is that this is a Jewish demon, instead of a Christian one. This forgettable flick does a decent job at maintaining a feeling of dread throughout, but that’s mostly because the audience can’t wait for it to be over. ED

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part Sugar 2 (11)

Dir: Malik Bendjelloul; Swe/ US/SA doc, 2012, 86 mins 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

Dir: Bill Condon; US fantasy, 2012, 119 mins; Kristin Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Perhaps the scariest part of all comes with the introduction of some new characters, which leaves the door open for potential spin-offs. Now there’s a scary thought. LR

The Hobbit (11)

Dir: peter jackson; US/New Zealand adventure/fantasy, 2012, 169 mins; Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Hugo Weaving The grandiloquence of the film will please the fanatics, but leave those on the fence potentially nauseous. Although some of the performances impress, the storyline is flabby, and the writers struggle to hatch a consistently entertaining story to meet the film’s excessive length. LR

KASPER GULDBERG

1. Martha Marcy May Marlene Masterfully observed, ominously pitched study of all the stages of sectarian brainwash and the treacherous road to recovery.

Killing Them Softly (15)

Dir: Andrew Dominik; US crime/drama, 2012, 97 mins; Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, There’s a familiarity to almost every facet of Killing Them Softly. The intention to provide the film with some originality and depth shows, but the plot is minimal – and alas, it never seems to gel in any meaningful way. MW

MARK WALKER

Argo (15)

Dir: Ben Affleck; US thriller, 2012, 120 mins; Ben Affleck, John Goodman, Bryan Cranston 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. MW

1. The Act of Killing This playful yet profound documentary investigates Indonesia’s anti-communist genocide. It does so by offering not the perspective of those victimised, but the killers themselves. A more soulful and challenging film you will not find this year. 2. Looper 3. Weekend 4. Martha Macy May Marlene 5. The Dark Knight Rises 1.

Skyfall It took two and a half Craig films to hear the phrase, ‘Bond, James Bond’ – talk about delayed gratification!

The Bletchley Circle SV2, Jan 2-4, 20:00

ONCE ESTABLISHED, it’s hard to get rid of an aversion to films and TV series in which all the leads are women. While some are just plain horrid (Steel Magnolias, Charlie’s Angels), others cajole you into thinking you’re safe, make you care and then eat away at you from the inside, by which time it’s too late. Think Sex in the City, Desperate Housewives. But every so often we get another Tenko, and this year that honour falls to The Bletchley Circle, a 1952 miniseries about four female Second World War code-breakers who reunite to track down a serial killer. The Guardian commended its “goodish plot, strong cast and touches of ‘50s period noir”. However, it did ask “why every bloke in dramas with strong women leads is either dull, stupid or feckless?” Good

point: maybe that’s why these all-female affairs grate so much. Also with strong female leads, Labyrinth, an adaptation of Kate Mosse’s bestseller set in both modern day and 13th century Europe, is spanking brand new – looks like it’s premiering all over Europe at Christmas. It’s therefore to ascertain its quality, but it looks promising. As do the docs. Two classics are revisited for a different take in Spike Lee’s Bad 25 (SV2, 29 Dec, 22:30) and The Real King’s Speech (DRK, Sat 22:45), while Everyone loves Christmas Films (SV1, Mon 22:40) looks like your best bet for fond festive nostalgia. And finally, the BBC is walking the talk in Planet Dinosaur (SV2, Jan 2-4, 19:10), another series about them big lizards.

Elsewhere, there’s another chance to see Ken Follett’s 12th century miniseries The Pillars of the Earth (DR2, from Tue 21:00); we’ve got the final of the US X Factor (DRHD, Dec 30, 20:00), the last ever episode of Entourage (SV2, Tue 22:45); and the 2012 Xmas edition of Downton Abbey (SV1, 29 SV2, Jan 2-4, 20:00 The Bletchley Circle Dec, 21:00); opera fans should love Plácido Domingo - My Greatest Roles (DRK, Dec 30, 20:00); there’s a new series of An Idiot Abroad (29 Dec , SV1, 22:35); while your favourite Xmas movie may very well be Lawrence of Arabia (SV2, Tue 14:55), Where Eagles Dare (TV3+, Mon 21:00), Funny Girl (SV2, Dec 31, 23:15), or any of the Star Wars films (DRHD, Tue & Wed, 17:50 & 18:05).
