inside this week


“THIS ONE is for the ladies.” But before I reveal why, it’s worth asking what happened to those kinds of DJs? You know: the cheesy, breezy, make you queasy brigade. Well, they still exist, but they’re lying low at the moment, waiting for the Jimmy Saville fall-out to blow over. It’s made them the heterosexual equivalent of the Roman Catholic priest. Not sure you can taint modern DJs with the same brush, although just like prostitutes and male strippers, they continue the tradition of sleeping with intoxicated customers. I must admit that the ‘art form’ is a little lost on me, and the other day, I found a kindred spirit in an unlikely source. I was trying to find out what Oscar Pistorius’s favourite song is – no it wasn’t anything by Bullet for my Valentine, but I bet they’ve been popular on Google (it was for a quiz question; see G8 for details of my next instalment) – and I found out that one of his favourite artists is a DJ called Deadmau5 (pronounced dead mouse, of course) who objects to being called

a DJ because they’re all “f**king c**ts”, particularly the “‘massive’ up-on-a-podium performer playing other people’s productions at the same speed as someone else’s productions and fading between the two of them”. Exactly! Talking of Pistorius, apparently BBC Radio 6 decided to play Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Hey Joe’ immediately after a report of the shooting: “And Pistorius is expected to appear in court tomorrow morning.” PAUSE, cue music: “Hey Joe, where you going with that gun in your hand? I’m going out to shoot my old lady, you know I caught her messing around with another man.” Now while it’s true I’ve never shot my girlfriend, I can sympathise with somebody getting it so wrong on Valentine’s Day. Because while this one is for the ladies, really it’s for the men who want to show their other-halves that they really get it. Start by whisking her away to the Chocolate Festival (see G2) and then buy her a bra that actually fits properly (G9). And finally set the video for The Newsroom (G20). It’s true the hard news might put her off, but it’s got more romance than a Danielle Steele novel. And don’t forget my quiz, which has a whole five-point round for the ladies. But be warned, she might just join the groupie onslaught on the ‘man on the podium’.

Chocoholics are always impressed at the DM chocolate final − mostly by the self-control of the entrants not to gulp down their creations asap

Chocolate Festival

Tap1, Ny Carlsberg Vej 91, Cph V; Sat & Sun 10:00-17:00; Tickets: over-6s: 130kr, under-6s: free adm, group of four: 460kr,; www.; prams and strollers not allowed, parking nearby DESPITE the well-meaning advice of food and fitness gurus the world over, who suggest daily servings of fruit and vegetables, grains and meats, others contend that there are really only three essential food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. A sweet-toothed individual, then, might consider a visit to a chocolate festival not an exercise in indulgence, but a nutritional endeavour instead. Add in a few servings of almonds, marzipan and nougat on top of your cupcakes or truffles, and one could reason that you’re well on your way to a well-balanced diet. While the logic may be slightly flawed, this is exactly the reasoning that the Chocolate Association (Chokoladeselskabet) wants you to adopt this weekend when the Copenhagen Chocolate Festival comes to TAP1 at Carlsberg. You may not find serv-

Store Scene, Ekvipagemestervej 10, Cph K; ends March 26, performances at 20:00 (unless stated) on Wed, March 5, March 12, March 19, March 24 (15:00), March 26; tickets 125-895kr; 120 mins without intermission; English with Danish subs Krzysztof Penderecki, best known for writing creepy atmospheric music for films like The Exorcist and The Shining, wrote this eerie opera as a protest against the repression of the Poles during the communist era. Based on Aldous Huxley’s novel, Penderecki swaps communism fervour for 17th century religious fanaticism, telling the story of a priest accused of violating several nuns. Arranged by the KGL’s former artistic director Keith Warner, it is a sinister, unforgettable opera. BH

ings from the healthiest of food groups, but you can instead expect to find superior quality sweets made by some of the world’s finest chocolatiers – over 40 of them, in fact, will exhibit their confections in tastings, workshops and more throughout the weekend. Whether you’re already an expert or a cacao bean novice, the festival offers something for everyone – from tastings to lectures to demonstrations. On Saturday alone, visitors can enjoy an Englishlanguage workshop on the history of chocolate led by British cocoa growers Hotel Chocolat, or join a seminar on chocolate mousse in its various forms. Looking for a more hands-on experience? Learn how to make chocolate tarts with salted liquorice and tangerines, or try your hand at homemade truffles with Swiss confectioner Beschle Chocolates. Throughout Saturday, you can also watch the DM chocolate final, where five of Denmark’s most talented trainee chefs will square off in the students’ chocolate championships. The competition begins in the morning and ends with an afternoon awards ceremony in which the ‘champion in chocolate’ is crowned.

Shakespeare’s Women

Sunday will feature the annual Chocolate Association awards ceremony, honouring the top chocolatiers for their contributions to the world of chocolate. The festivities will also continue in the form of an English lecture on cacao beans and the benefits of consuming them, or the opportunity to watch a chocolate sculpture being constructed from start to finish. Visitors can even attend a workshop to learn how chocolate is used with chemicals for jokes and pranks, or finish off the weekend on a relaxing note with a chocolate massage. Quickly gaining popularity as a substitute for traditional spa oils, chocolate is said to lower blood pressure when consumed in moderation – and as Raz Spas’s chocolate massages seem to suggest, external application might be equally beneficial. While there may not be sufficient evidence that a chocolate massage will actually improve your health, the endorphininduced satisfaction definitely might. So if the weekend programme isn’t sufficient reason to attend, consider a visit to the festival a contribution to your well-being.

Krudttønden, Serridslevvej 2, Cph Ø; ends March 23, performances Mon-Fri 20:00, Sat 17:00; How did Shakespeare come to write his ‘last play’, The Two Noble Kinsmen. This is the mystery Barry McKenna and Ian Burns clarify in Shakespeare’s Women. Set in 1613, days after the fire that destroyed the Globe Theatre. Shakespeare is adapting Chaucer’s The Knight’s Tale, turning to his previous female creations for inspiration, but he is burnt out. “Records of Shakespeare’s life are hard to come by and we thought it would be fun to try and put ourselves in his shoes,” writes Burns, who himself will be playing Shakespeare. The production plays on memory and imagination as the Bard is haunted by visions of his most popular female characters. AA


August Strindberg Play Night


Krudttønden, Serridslevvej 2B, Cph Ø; Sat Mar 9, 16:00 and 19:00; tickets: 60kr; To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of Swedish playwright August Strindberg’s death, the Copenhagen Theatre Circle and the International Theatre of Malmö have teamed up to present two of his plays in English. The Stronger, one of his most acclaimed works, centres on two actresses conversing in a cafe, while the rarely performed Simoom features a battle of wills between a French legionnaire and an Arab woman in the Algerian desert. Strindberg is perhaps best known today as being one of the major influences on the US realist dramatists of the 20th century - most particularly Eugene O’Neill. JH



1 - 7 March 2013 ... and it ends TWICE

Store Carl, Pasteursvej 20, Cph V; starts Sat, ends March 9, performances Mon-Fri 20:00, Sat 17:00 & 20:00; tickets: 130kr, concessions 60kr; MODERN DANCE as entertainment is a fast-growing phenomena. Beautiful dance is no longer exclusive to royal ballet companies, but is instead quickly becoming a part of the average Joe’s life thanks to frequent appearances on TV. Reality TV shows such as So You Think You Can Dance are very popular, and even Pink gives a noteworthy dance performance in her latest music video to the song ‘Try’. Dansehallerne seem adamant on providing the general public with dance shows that will entice people away from their TV sets and back into the theatre, and with their latest offering, there’s no reason for the average Joe not to give live dance performances a chance. From the groundbreaking choreographer Tina Tarpgaard comes a collaboration with Nelson Rodrigues-Smith that promises to be a treat for the senses. The show ...and it ends TWICE consists of two pieces, TØRST by Tarpgaard and MENTE by Rodrigues-Smith, which seek to explore our physical and mental existences respectively.

Jeg ved hvor din hus den bor


Lille Scene, Skuespilhuset, Sankt Annæ Plads 36, Cph K; starts Thu, ends March 12, performances Thu 10:00 & 12:00; tickets: 100kr; duration 50 mins;; In this ballet, the bizarrelytitled Jeg ved hvor din hus den bor (I know where your house it lives), the trio Åben Dans honours people who are permanently held back by metaphorical walls of fear. This powerful message is performed in a world with walls of brown moving boxes that are constantly being shifted, rebuilt and torn down. SN



Gamle Scene, Det N Kongelige Teater, Kongens Nytorv 9, Cph K; starts Tue, ends Wed, performances at 19:30; tickets: 95-595kr; 150 mins incl two intermissions; www. For just two days, you have the chance to experience sweat, passion, envy, murder and love as Puccini’s classical dramatic opera Tosca is now taking over Copenhagen. Don’t miss your chance to witness this masterpiece conducted by Puccini enthusiast Giordano Bellincampi and directed by Sweden’s Elisabeth Linton and Austria’s Herbert Murauer. So put on your finest gown and let this famous love story mesmerise you. SN

TØRST is about two men stranded in the desert: a scenario where logical thinking gives way to physical urges and the struggle for survival. In this piece, Tarpgaard tackles the physical tension that is created between people when faced with a demanding situation; every movement of the other person is monitored closely and a seemingly innocent look can spark a fight. Through this tense situation, Tarpgaard hopes to create a piece that is not only entertaining but challenging through the observation of the human body’s physicality. Tarpgaard is known for using experimental backgrounds and features in her shows, and in TØRST, she uses an interactive video scenography that becomes sort of an extension of the dancers’ movements and creates new dimensions of choreography. With the advancements of technology, it is only natural that it plays a part in creating performances such as this one. However, what is worthy of note in this instance is that the technology is not supposed to play a supporting role: it’s not meant to be lost in the background music or lighting, but rather to become a crucial part of the dance itself and make for a different kind of dance performance. The Danish-Columbian dancer Rodrigues-Smith makes his debut as a choreographer with MENTE, a piece which explores the opposite end of the pole: a world where reality and subcon-

sciousness merge and create a hazy, dreamlike state. Rodrigues-Smith challenges our modern day, technology-ridden society with a piece that examines what happens when the human mind is constantly bombarded with external stimulation and the only retreat is within. The piece explores the misty universe of the subconscious, and by using an interactive sound system, Rodrigues-Smith hopes to unite the dancers and the audience in a trancelike state where the edges between reality and dream have been blurred. The piece will run from March 2-9 and there will be a few special arrangements in connection with it. After the show on March 4, anyone under the age of 25 will have the chance to go behind the scenes and explore the technique of the interactive software used in the show. After the show on March 8 the doors will open for Loona Nights, an ‘open stage’ night where young artists have a chance to present their latest pieces to an audience. Typically, there are about ten performances, each about ten minutes long. So, whether you’re a great connoisseur of dance or don’t know the difference between plié and a pirouette, ...and it ends TWICE is sure to entertain and to have you questioning not only your idea of dance, but your very own everyday life.

Ideal Bar, Enghavevej 40, Cph V; Mon 20:00; Tickets: 120kr,



AY ATTENTION, dear Post readers, you’re looking at the best punk band performing today. Hailing from the thriving Toronto music scene – by way of Ottawa – vocalist-guitarist Alex Edkins, bassist Chris Slorach and drummer Hayden Menzies are METZ, a raucous three-

piece with a penchant for loud noises. Very loud noises. Perhaps the most punk thing about this Canadian buzz-band is that they don’t really sound archetypically punk at all. Rewriting the DIY rulebook with a vicious new cocktail that blends the tropes of Sex Pistols punk with Public Image Ltd post-punk, their unique sound is thrown together with a bit of alternative rock – a la Pixies – and the grungy sounds of Pearl Jam, and topped off with a dash of garage rock, noise, sludge metal, surf and hardcore. Wearing their influences right on their dirty sleeves, they still manage to

sound remarkably fresh and current. They are three angry young men speaking for a generation left duped by the global financial crisis, who find solace in forcing audiences to dance like loons. Formed way back in 2007, the band built up a steady local following with notorious live shows and some rough and ready demo EPs. Crafting their niche, they eventually sent a demo out to their favourite record label, the legendary Seattle-based outfit Sub Pop. The label bigwigs were left stunned, excited and afraid by what they heard, and decided to release

the band’s eponymous debut LP back in October last year. Thirty minutes of breathless, boisterous noise-punk, it swept the board garnering great critic appraisal and universal acclaim, bagging a spot on Pitchfork’s Top 50 Albums of 2012 list, and producing radio hits with the appropriately titled tracks ‘Headache’ and ‘Wasted’. Despite their prodigious influences, the band METZ most peculiarly resemble is another Sub Pop-signed three-piece, the grunge demigods Nirvana. Like Cobain & Co’s first album Bleach, METZ’s debut sounds

like a bunch of friends in a room together, turning their amps to 11 and throwing their guitars, drums and each other at a wall − all in the name of fun. A first listen can initially be a jarring experience, but you’re very quickly won over by the tenacity of the performance: from Edkin’s ferocious screams and crunchy riffs, Slorach’s pummelling bass lines, and the Keith Moon-style punishment Menzies bestows onto his drum kit. These songs, and this band, were born to be appreciated live. Lucky for us, METZ roll onto Scandinavian shores this Mon-

day, providing us with a postweekend wake-up call at their first ever Copenhagen show. Held at Vesterbro’s Lille Vega, if it’s anything like the other shows on their tour, expect album hits, new treats, sweaty dancing, alcohol swirling and the occasional bit of affable audience banter. Asked in a recent interview what sort of music METZ play, heavyweight drummer Menzies proclaimed “it’s the sort of music parents will hate.” Whilst it’s probably best you leave your mum and dad at home, be sure you don’t forget your earplugs.

Inout | The cph post entertainment guide

1 -7 March 2013


Ideal Bar, Vega; 21:00; 70kr This up-and-coming electro dance group’s sound is characterised by a catchy British brand of electro-pop, combined with frontman Rasmus Poulsen’s flashy stage presence and bulging ego. You.You.You model their incessant disco-pop on artists like Hot Chip, James Blake and M83 in a combination of melancholic notes and electronic reliefs. Those notes are delivered with real gusto onstage too – the band has become well known for their hyper performances at Arena Stage at Roskilde Festival and other venues.


Store Vega; 20:00; 160kr The ambient rock outfit made their breakthrough with the single ‘Comfort and Rage’ in 2009. Their slowly evolving folk tunes resonated with the imaginations of their Danish listeners, and the release of their new record, Fractures (2012), is a demonstration of the band’s capabilities: a neat reflection of Scandinavian lo-fi rock. Cody now fare alongside strong, similarly guided Danish acts like Sleep Party People, Choir For Young Believers and Hymns From Nineveh. In just a few years, they have gone from group shows at Copenhagen’s smaller venues to appearances at Roskilde, and now finally Store Vega.

Tako Lako

Rust, Guldbergsgade 8, Cph N; 21:00; 100kr Once hailed as one of ‘Denmark’s biggest upcoming acts’ by MTV Denmark, this Copenhagen-based group pride themselves on their fast-paced pioneering experiments with Balkan folk music. After winning the national stage of the talent contest Emergenza in 2008, Tako Lako have continued to build their growing reputation following the warm reception given to their debut record, Through The Mud (2012), and have become regulars on the Copenhagen circuit, making appearances on the city’s major stages.

Bobo Moreno / Bo Stief / Ole Kock Hansen + Adam Nussbaum

Jazzhus Montmartre, Store Regnegade 119A, Cph K; 20:00; 325kr After decades of performing, Stief remains one of Scandinavia’s most illustrious jazz bassists. Joining Stief will be his stepson, the celebrated vocalist Moreno, along with veteran jazz pianist Hansen and salient jazz pianist Nussbaum. Hailed as a “unique constellation” of jazz minds by Montmartre, jazz enthusiasts would be disappointed to miss out on this. But for those who do, there will be a repeat concert on Saturday evening at the same time. See for further details.

Crystal Castles

Store Vega; 20:00; 200kr In just a few years, this Ontario two-piece have shot onto the indie music scene. After the release of their second studio album last year, Crystal Castles II, the duo have come back into focus. Playing with the boundaries between grime, pop and techno, their sound is spiked with tenacity, attitude and noise. Their music is a chaotic cataclysm of electronic instruments, gauzy vocals and some ear-splitting digital convulsions. Many of their acerbic sound experiments go according to plan, but while it all comes through headphones just fine, many of these elements aren’t nearly as harmonious live.

Approved by pre-teens, adolescents and dads Review Biffy Clyro


February 21 Store Vega


ull disclosure: I am not exactly in Biffy Clyro’s target audience. Judging from the packed house at Vega last night, I am about 40 years older than the ‘Mon the Biff’ crowd. I first became aware of the Scottish alternative rock band featuring Simon Neil (guitar, lead vocals), James Johnston (bass, vocals) and Ben Johnston (drums, vocals) about two years ago as their music blared nonstop from my then 14-year-old daughter’s room. Her younger brother also got caught up in the band’s poly-rhythmic and alternatively dissonant and melodic songs. Flash forward a couple of years, and here I stand, right up against the rail in front of the stage, protecting my offspring from the hundreds of sweaty,

thrashing maniacs behind me. Biffy Clyro came to Vega in support of their new release Opposites, which earned them their first number one on the UK album charts. The band’s audience has been growing steadily since their fourth release, 2007’s Puzzle, saw them move away from the heavily Nirvana-influenced crash and burn style of their earlier work and into the mainstream. Their newer songs have hooks big enough to have earned X Factor covers and be used as Premier League background music and are sturdy and melodically interesting. The influences are clear without ever being overt: some Foo Fighters here, a touch of Metallica or Queens of the Stone Age there. On the big anthems like ‘The Captain’ or ‘Bubbles’, traces of Celtic brothers U2 pop up, right down to a “whoah, oh, oh, oh” sing-along that could have been lifted in whole cloth from ‘With or Without You’. Lyrics like “Help me be the captain of our crippled dis-

guises” are a bit beyond me, but seemed to make perfect sense to the faithful. The band have opened for some of the biggest acts in the world on some of the largest stages, and their stagecraft is excellent. The rhythm section is tight throughout the songs, and the guitar work of Neil and Mike Vennart, formerly of Oceansize, who add texture to the trio’s onstage sound, was from the Edge/ Pete Townsend school: power chords in the rockers, big ringing tones in the ballads and mercifully devoid of long, self-indulgent soloing. They rock hard enough to keep the boys moshing while their skinny, tattooed, shirtless rockstar looks make the girls swoon. Old man that I am, I am the first to bitch when kids behave poorly at shows, but as soon as some of the biggest, most hardcore headbangers in the room realised that my rather small, 11-year-old son was in their midst, they moved him right to the front of the stage and formed

Nightlife Jessie’s

Jolene, Flæsketorvet 81, Cph V; Thu 22:00; free adm Jolene’s Thursday night spread is crowned as Copenhagen’s best alternative gay club night in town. The nightclub is filled to capacity each time with an array of the city’s young and trendy, all sporting leather brogues, dirty denims and cowboy jackets. Jessie’s night is fast becoming a nightlife staple with rotating inhouse and international DJs taking a lead.

DJ Cyril Hahn These Scots are hot to trot

a protective scrum around him to prevent him being squashed in the madness. Good form, lads. Biffy Clyro are slated to return to Denmark during the summer festival season and are definitely worth a look. Both my kids have already informed me that they will be going again. While I’m not certain I’ll join them, last night’s performance will at least make me consider it. Ray Weaver

Simons, Store Strandstræde 14, Cph K; Fri 23:30; 100kr This Canadian producer made a name for himself simply by remixing major artists’ work, including Destiny’s Child, Diplo and The XX. Landing in the hands of Annie Mac of BBC’s Radio 1, he became a sensation overnight, with bookings pouring in from and some 2.7 million hits on his Youtube remixes. Remember to pre-book and put your name on the guest list for this one – Simons won’t take in just any unregistered passer-by.

Bryan Adams

Koncerthuset, Emil Holms Kanal 20, Cph S; 20:00; 715815kr The singer-songwriter has enjoyed a long career that extends all the way back to the 1970s. After working on the US pop scene throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s, Adams instead turned his hand to playing charity concerts for animal rights activists, various poverty relief projects and concerts supporting world peace. Having released more than 20 studio-records and a long list of EPs – his most recent being 2010’s Bare Bones – you can expect Adams to focus mostly on his new material, sprinkled with a handful of classics.

The Drunken Flamingo

Gammeltorv 14, Cph K; Sat 18:00-05:00; Free adm If you are into flamboyant, colourful and tasty cocktails, this is the place to go. Get there midevening to enjoy the cosy atmosphere, but be warned: come midnight, the DJ will get the party started and keep it going into the early hours.

DJ Noize Late Night Battle

Prøvehallen, Porcelænstorvet 4, Valby; Sat 23:30; 195kr Led by the master of ceremonies, Danish hip-hop beatsmith DJ Noize and a collective of vocalists and jazz musicians will bring jazz and dancehall together in another one of this year’s Jazz Festival concerts. Accompanying DJ Noize will be a hub of artists on stage – a number of whom are regular fixtures at the various jazz venues in town – including saxophonist Benjamin Koppel, organist Anders Koppel, and vocalist Molly Koppel this will most likely appeal more to the jazz crowd, as opposed to the late-night party seekers.

IT’S MINUS something outside and even those eager Facebook enthusiasts who were actively uploading one picture after another to document their love of snow when it all started back in December are now starting to lose their patience with the stuff. With spring still a good way off, Underground would hereby be delighted to take you by the hand and guide you towards several carefully picked hotspots at which you can find entertainment, laughs, and that elusive bit of encouragement that’ll propel you forward in this seemingly endless winterscape of white and grey. I think it’s fair to say that most people reading this define a good night out as having a bit more to it than what one may otherwise experience at the gaudy concoction of tourist traps and mainstream hotspots that decorate the city centre. If gulping dodgy-coloured shots with porn star names in Kulør Bar to the sounds of pop products like Rihanna and David ‘one piano key’ Guetta is not your thing, please read on. If it is, then excuse the judgment. February has been a surprisingly good month for music in Copenhagen, with the likes of Christiania icon Wafande doing his bit for the Danish dancehall revolution with a solid show at Vega. Drum ‘n’ bass fans are surely also all smiles at the moment following Andy C’s monumental gig at Pumpehuset. The concert was something of a coup for the recently re-established concert venue who also managed to pay their respects to Bob Marley with a tribute concert by the late icon’s son, Ky

Mani Marley. Berlin’s electronic music veterans Modeselektor added a sheen of gloss to the month that’s gone by with a sensational performance at a sold-out Store Vega, so all in all it’s been a good one, despite the snow and the cold. But what about March then? UNDERGROUND RECOMMENDS: Tako Lako Rust; Fri March 1; 100kr Serbian-influenced psychedelic gypsy vibe is how one of the members of Danish band Tako Lako describes their music. Known for chaotic concerts and a cultivated dislike of mainstream music, this band have played far and wide over the last couple of years and show few signs of stopping. If you haven’t seen them yet, now would be a good time to hop onboard the Tako Lako revolution. Support party for Bolsjefabrikken, Ragnhildgade 1, Cph N; Sat March 2, 20:00-04:00; 40kr It doesn’t get any more underground than Bolsjefabrikken. This fundraising event features the likes of dancehall mainstays Mighty Mala and Chancho, Cumbiatronica masters Copia Doble Sistema and other random names on the underground circuit, all of whom will be playing to raise money for the movement. Organisations expected to have a presence there include Queer Jihad, Stop Udvisningerne, Boykot G4S, Free Gaza, Crisis Mirror and Socialistisk UngdomsFront.

Violin students of NEW Sergel Azizian Studio Hall, Rosenørns Allé 22; Fri 19:30-21:00; free adm The violin students of Segel Azizian take to the stage to perform works by Saint-Saëns, Shubert, Ysaye, Ravel, and Bottesini. Ravel’s Rapsodie ‘Tzigane’, an unfinished pencilled score for a projected ballet, based on Liszt’s 14th Hungarian Rhapsody, is sure to dazzle, and will be followed by a romantic violin and double bass duet. Ensemble NEW Intercontemporain Conservatory Concert Hall, Julius Thomsens Gade 1; Thu 19:3021:00; free adm The spectacular professional French ensemble, Ensemble Intercontemporain, will kick off the Pulsar Festival with five Danish premiere performances featuring works by Mette Nielsen, Nicholas Martin, Nicolai Worsaae, Manuel Rodríguez and Lasse Schwanenflügel Piasecki.

1 - 7 March 2013

Kaizers Orchestra Store Vega; March 10; 250kr Kaizers Orchestra’s music is folk rock with heavily eastern European influences from a Norwegian sextet based in the city of Bergen. It sounds a little bit spacey, a little bit gypsy and rather wild, so prepare to break a rib or two and brush up on your Norwegian if you fancy attempting the nearly impossible task of understanding their lyrics. Lulu Rouge Culture Box, Red booth; March 15; 50kr Lulu Rouge is Denmark’s unsung hero of electronic music. Some may recognise Lulu from his exploits at the annual Stella Polaris chillout festival where he’s played alongside the likes of Moby and Groove Armada, whilst others may know him from his work with Agnes Obel, one of the nation’s foremost pianists. Playing in Culture Box’s recently built basement red room ought to be something of an experience for both Lulu and anyone attending. Mahala Rai Banda Global Nørrebro; March 16; 110kr Mahala Rai Banda’s music is as uncouth and as unpretentious as the name suggests. This is Romani music at its best, complete with several brass band army veterans from the same famous village that bands such as Fanfare Ciocarlia hail from. It’s not too different to the sort of music featured in Sasha Baron Cohen’s provocative comedy Borat and its playful twist will surely tickle most.

Area 55 NEW Gyldenløvesgade 24, Cph K; Sat 22:00. Tickets: 195kr If electronic music, lights, and giant psychedelic decorations are your idea of the perfect night, look no further. Day Din, Automatic, Kularis, and Zyce will perform live, and DJs Blue M, D-Decades, and DJ Numb will keep the party hopping on the airconditioned dancefloor. The first 100 guests will receive a free copy of the CD Audiomatic - Inside. AA Ravnsborggade NEW Flea Market Ravnsborggade, Cph N; Mar 10 10:0016:00; free adm Antiques dominate this Sunday flea market, but don’t worry – the market has begun to expand, offering a great variety of unique and vintage goods. Peruse the tables of goods laid out by locals, and take refuge in the small and cosy cafes that are sprinkled around the area. AS Kennedy’s Quiz Gammel Kongevej 23, 1610 Cph V; Mon 19:30; 25kr per person; max four per team The pub can get crowded so get there at 18:30 to guarantee a nice table. The winners get 800kr, second place 400kr and third place 200kr. There are two beer round questions, a raffle and quizmaster Roy, who is a tennis coach, always asks at least two questions on tennis.

Reptile Youth Lille Vega; Fri March 8, 150kr Previously known as Reptile n Retard, this electronic rock duo were responsible for one of the best Roskilde Festival concerts of 2011, providing a rollercoasting two hours of mayhem at Pavilion Junior. Back then, the lead singer timed a perilous clamber onto the pylons supporting the stage at the climax of the show to fling himself into the crowd below. There aren’t any pylons at Lille Vega so it might not get quite as exaggerated this time round. Reptile Youth’s music is produced by none other than David M Allen, a producer who’s worked with the likes of Depeche Mode and The Cure. Enough said.

CPH Puppet NEW Festival Enghavevej 4, Cph V & Lyrskovgade 4, Cph V; started Thu, ends Sun, performance times vary; tickets: 70-100kr per show; Not to be confused with the children-orientated Puppet Junior, the biennial adult’s Puppet Festival has cut the strings from its local council to embrace artistic freedom and complex themes as a self-governing institution. This year’s festival features productions across a multitude of mature subjects, including ‘Hooray for Hollywood’, set within the child pornography industry, and ‘The House’, a thriller depicting the crimes that occur between a house’s walls. Sold-out workshops in puppet animation and shadow puppetry will also take place. JH St David’s Day Celebrations Red Lion, Nikolajgade 18, Cph K; Fri from 12:00 Join the Red Lion’s celebration of the Welsh patron saint on March 1. Get out the daffodils and the leeks, and get stuck into some Dylan Thomas, the Robert Burns of Welsh literature. On special offer all day is a meal of leek and potato soup, Welsh rarebit and a pint, all for just 99kr, while Brain’s Black stout is just 45kr a pint. BH

Irish Rover Pub Quiz featuring Ray Weaver Vimmelskaftet 46, Cph K; Thu 7 Feb, 19:30; 20kr pp, max five per team; first prize: 1,000kr, second prize: 500kr Smack in the middle of Strøget, you can’t miss the Irish Rover’s new pub quiz. Expect an evening chocker-block with entertainment, fun, surprises and prizes. The opening round will feature ten film and TV soundtracks performed by acclaimed musician Ray Weaver. At the end of the night, take part in the individual Snowball question the closest answer gets a prize. Presented by Ben Hamilton (err, that’s me), if you can’t make this one, watch out for the next instalment (touch wood) on April 18. BH Southern Cross Quiz Løngangstræde 37, Cph K; Thu 19:30; 25kr per person; max five per team You’ll be impressed with the intelligence of the questions. Mostly guessable, the quizmaster personally writes every one and it shows. The winners get a bottle of vodka and ten pints of beers, or tokens, second place eight bottles, and last place shots.

IT IS A well-known fact that men are expected to buy their girlfriends sexy underwear and that they tend to suck at it. They inevitably buy the wrong size – possibly as a result of wishful thinking or perhaps in an attempt not to tick off their girlfriend. But there is another good explanation for their lack of success. It is notoriously difficult to find good wellfitting bras. There is a reason for Trinny and Susannah’s success at grabbing women’s breasts all over the world and making a show of it. So this Select Shopping is about tracking down the experts who can help you find the right size. Hunkemöller Lyngby Storcenter 810, Lyngby; open Mon-Fri 10:00-19:00, Sat 10:00-17:00, Sun 11:00-16:00; This is an inexpensive but good brand – where they have the added bonus of professional and alert staff. They patiently listen and find what you are looking for whilst being honest about what actually works – so you don’t make the same rookie mistakes as your boyfriend. Fogal Fogal, Østergade 2, Cph K; open Mon-Thu 10:00-18:00, Fri 10:0019:00, Sat 10:00-17:00, Sun closed; In spite of its great location, it is easily overlooked. The service is excellent though, and you find yourself with wellfitting bras you didn’t expect would suit you. It is a bit pricy, but the quality is good.

Kids Waking the NEW T-Rex 3D Tycho Brahe Planetarium, Gammel Kongevej 10, Cph V; ongoing, ends March 24; www. This exciting 3D film follows the life of T-Rex Sue, the largest and most complete T-Rex ever found. Discovered in 1990 in South Dakota, the film illustrates what Sue might have looked like, and how she behaved growing up. Besides showing her interaction and superiority to other creatures, the film brings viewers back to the museum laboratories and shows how scientists learned to decipher Sue’s past life by observing her bones. AW Water – a world of adventures Experimentarium, Tuborg Havnevej 7, Hellerup; open Mon-Fri 09:30-17:00, Tue 09:3021:00, Sat and Sun 11:00-17:00; under 2s free, age 3-11 105kr, adult 160kr, students 105kr; contact 3927 3333 or info@ This water adventure features more than 50 activities and experiments. But don’t be afraid of getting your clothes wet as this is a “bone-dry ride through the wet element”.

Illum Illum, Østergade 52, Cph K; open Mon-Thu 10:00-19:00, Fri 10:0020:00, Sat 10:00-19:00, Sun 11:0016:00; You won’t find inexpensive bras here – but you’ll walk away with bras that last a long time. The service is very good – they take their time to guide you through all the different models and sizes. You are not invaded in the changing room by an over-enthusiastic salesperson – but they are at hand so you can get their opinion about the right fit. Magasin Kongens Nytorv 13, Cph K; open Mon-Sun 10:00-20:00; Here the staff are helpful when they are around – which they rarely are. You don’t really want to make your way out into the open wearing only your bra and getting dressed to go out for help every time is too much of a hassle. So this is the place to go – if you have already successfully found the bra you like and only need to purchase one at their incredibly good sales.

Encounter more than ten dinosaurs and a host of skeletons and bones and experience their life up close! Lie with eggs in the nests, avoid the T Rex’s sharp teeth and witness the great meteor impacts in 3D. To activate your creative juices, you can create your own colours and feathers on a dinosaur, imagine ferocious battle scenes from dinosaur footprints, become a paleontologist and cut your way into a rockslide that hides tooth or claw fossils, and guess what dinosaurs looked like.

It introduces children to the form of sound, movement, breathing, meditation, and relaxation. Because children absorb and process knowledge through play and movement, classes have both creative learning elements that stimulate the desire to learn and classic yoga exercises. AW


The pulse of classical music throbs strong Pulsar Festival Various venues in Cph K & Frederiksberg; starts Thu March 7, ends March 14; free adm at all concerts; DO YOU want the chance to be able to say you met the next Stravinsky or attended the premiere of a groundbreaking piece of music? Because the Pulsar Festival is back between March 7 and 14, and once again we can look forward to the premieres of work by aspiringcomposers. Organised by the Royal Danish Academy of Music, up-and-coming composers, after years of hard work and a rigorous selection process, are given the opportunity to present their work for the first time. Attend because it could be interesting to hear new sounds and unknown rhythms – don’t necessarily expect harmony. As an added bonus, all the concerts are free of charge. TOP PICKS: Gæstespil: Storstrøms Kammerensemble Studiescenen, Rosenørns Allé 22, Frederiksberg; March 12, 19:30 Eva Rotenberg is inspired by glass, metal and wood, and the result may be heard in her Glass, metal and wood piece from 2011. Erik Højsgaard found inspiration to compose Udstillingsbillede from Danish symbolist painter LA Ring’s painting ‘Folk som går fra kirke, Mogenstrup’. So lessons in how wood sounds or how a Danish symbolist painter translates into music is on the menu this Tuesday evening. Other pieces include: Kristian Rymkier’s Sous forme de points (premiere), Martin Stauning’s Un Vuoto di Nulla (premiere) and Søren Nils Eichberg’s Bridges and Paths.

See My Shadow ZeBU, Øresundsvej 4, Cph S; ends March 9, performance times vary; tickets 120kr, children 50kr; Imagine that your shadow suddenly gets its own life and does not follow your movements as it should, as if you had ended up in a computer game. This is the challenge for the girl in this performance dance piece played out to music by cellists Soma Allpass and Lisbeth Diers. Suitable for over-6s. TM HC Andersen’s ‘Tællelyset’ Danish National Archives, Rigsdagsgaarden 9, Cph K; until March, 09:00-16:00; 3392 3310, Tællelyset, believed to be HC Andersen’s first ever fairytale, was recently discovered in a shuffle of papers at the National Archives. It is now on display until the spring. AS Traversing the rock igloo Stuehøj, Ahornvej 10, Ølstykke; www.ølstykke-stenlø A 45-minute train ride away from Copenhagen, you’ll find Stuehøj, a 5,500-year-old ‘rock igloo’ passage grave topped with turf. Get off at Ølstykke S-train station, just before Frederikssund. Mind your heads! And take a torch (it’s dark) and some charcoal for the barbecue by the playground. HD

Cool surroundings, like those at the royal academy, are often integral to the occasion

Chamber music concert 1-2-4 St Petri Kirke, Sankt Peders Stræde 2, Cph K; March 13, 17:00 Can rocks breathe? Composer Martin Stauning poses this question in Atmende Steine. Meanwhile, China’s Tan Tuan Hao has doubts in his Doubts and Gunnar Masson encourages the audience to lust after the strange sounds they hear in his piece Duplex. Attend because it sounds like fun and decide for yourself whether you might actually lust for more strange sounds from these new composers. ALSO RECOMMENDED: Chamber music with premieres Studiescenen, Rosenørns Allé 22, Frederiksberg; March 10, 21:30 This is a bit of a cheat, since it isn’t just premieres but also includes Le livre de Jeb for piano, a 2009 piece from French composer Bruno Mantovani. The concert has five pieces in total and includes the premiere of Mads Emil Dreyer’s streg, komma,

Okker Gokker Det Lille Teater, Lavendelstræde 5-7, Cph K; ends May 5, performances Tue-Sun − times vary; adult tickets: 120kr, concessions: 60kr, under-25s: 50kr,; suitable for 2–4 years This musical play is especially designed for the smallest members of the family. It’s full of old Danish rhymes, limericks and songs with plenty of visual aids to help captivate the audience, young and old alike. Lille Teater specialises in children’s pieces, and this play is designed to introduce Danish culture to the audience by performing old favourites, such as the stories of Okker Gokker and Bro Brille. BSM Glaspusterens Børn Teatret Zeppelin, Valdemarsgade 15, Cph V; ends Mar 13, performances Mon-Sat − times vary; adult tickets: 165kr, concessions: 105kr, under-25s: 95kr;; suitable for 7 years or above Written by celebrated Scandinavian children’s author Maria Gripe, Glaspusterens Børn tells the story of two siblings Klas and Klara, who are abducted and locked up in a gloomy house in Ønskeby. They are held captive until heroine Flaske Midtvejr and her trusty raven ‘Hin Kloge’ come to the rescue, resulting in an epic fight of good vs evil. BSM

streg and Kasper Rofelt’s Semiosis. The composers’ thoughts on the pieces suggest that it will be more abstract musical rather than harmonious sounds. New songs Studiescenen, Rosenørns Allé 22, Frederiksberg; March 11, 19:30 Tan Tuan Hao found inspiration in a Chinese opera for Chúan – which apparently refers to the act of passing something on. It’s a touching idea and an interesting source of inspiration. This piece is for two vocals and guitar. Other pieces include Eva Rotenberg’s Birdcage walk (2012), Mads Emil Dreyer’s Kombinationer (premiere), Jeppe Ernst’s Y (premiere), another from Tan Tuan Hao: Songs from ‘05 (premiere), Ji Yu’s Songs of a boater from Yue, I, II (premiere) and Benjamin de Murashkin’s The Thunder, Perfect Mind (premiere).

Simon’s Winter Salad ( SERVES FOUR ) F OR

WINTER salad sounds like an oxymoron, but it’s really a great way of throwing together seasonal fare amongst the lightness and healthiness of leaves. Inspired by a dish I ate at restaurant Pasta Basta, I’ve been ‘experimenting’ with a few recently. I’ll concentrate on one in particular here: a goat’s cheese, beetroot and walnut salad. For food aficionados, a classic flavour and texture combo; for those previously distanced from such a trio, a curious opportunity to be the true chef -– i.e bringing together and not fannying around with seasoning and cooking methods. Like all good salads, and most dishes generally, a lot hinges on being able to get fresh ingredi-

ents – which is as likely as getting a token ‘sorry’ from the man who barges past you as he makes for the S-Train. Still, you can at least get semi-decent goat’s cheese. For the beetroot, bought jarred ones can be refreshing, but ideally boiling and lightly pickling fresh ones yourself is better. Just so long as they’re cooked properly. It’s also a great way to eat them if you’re not a huge fan − though I am − alongside some creamy cheese, some crunch and the acidity of a mustard vinegar dressing. Walnuts classically fit with goat’s cheese, but actually other types of nuts can work. Pistachios, cashews or the woody, smoked crunch of roasted pine nuts work just fine.

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.

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 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.

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!

SLOW ROAST the beetroot and red pepper, remove from the oven and leave them to stand and cool. Skin both vegetables, cube the beetroot and slice the pepper. Meanwhile, wash the salad leaves, and toss together with the walnuts. Mix the dressing ingredients together, add a twist of lemon juice for some bite if required. Beat well with a fork until the mustard has blended in with the oil and vinegar. In a sizeable mixing bowl toss beetroot with lettuce and walnut mix. Slice as much goat’s cheese as you like, drizzle with olive oil, season and stick under a medium-hot grill for 3-5 minutes. Remove and place on top of salad. Finish with dressing and red peppers on top.

companied by celery and dressed with a rich smoked marrow sauce. The choice of wine for this course was a Tuscany 2009 Chianti ‘ Colli Senesi’ − a Castello di Farnetella. The cheese course followed with red Christian, which is a biodynamic milk cheese, a Vesterhav and another Danish delicacy called Hoeg cheese, all of which were served with butter-fried bread and sea buckthorn compote. Finally, we got to the dessert which was the Assortment of berries, consisting of dried frozen blueberries, blueberry granite and blueberry meringue with white choco-

RESTAURANTS in Denmark, particularly those in Copenhagen, are in a mad rush to join the new-Nordic food concept that is taking over the country’s food culture. What is less known to the public are some of the restaurants at the cutting edge of this food revolution, and how they experiment with green cooking and biodynamic kitchens. And what is almost a secret are the number of smaller restaurants involved in this food revolution, like Spisehuset 56°. Situated in a truly elegant and historic building, built in 1744 for the purpose of storing the ammunition at Charlotte Amalie’s Bastion, this restaurant ticks the box for originality in a number of ways. Not many restaurants can boast of walls that are 1.5 metres thick. I was told that as this was the ammunition house, the walls were made thick so as to protect the people outside the building. Odd but very sensible. This also means that although located by the water, the restaurant is warm and keeps the heat during the long winter months. The restaurant is called Spisehuset 56° because 56 degrees is the temperature at which all the meat is vacuum-cooked at. This ensures that the meat is still succulent and restores all its flavours, yet is cooked to a degree that it is considered suitable for consumption. Spisehuset 56° is one of the few restaurants that can be truly labelled ‘biodynamic’. All the fruit and veg used in the dishes are grown on a farm belonging to the parents of the chef, Kenneth Ellegaard, in Lolland. Every day, the restaurant receives a delivery of freshly plucked produce, so the restaurant has no set menus. This is perhaps not suitable if you are choosing the restaurant based on the menu, but one is guaranteed to get a plate of food that is prepared with the most seasonal vegetables. The meat comes from an organic farm on Fyn called Den Fynske Gaarde, and the seafood from local suppliers in Zealand. Rest assured one can dine at Spisehuset 56° without a guilty conscience. During my evening I was served the seasonal menu that began with a scrumptious appetiser of Dehydrated and cured scallop with apple vinegar and liquorice syrup. As we were getting used to the rustic tastes, we were served the starter course of Mussel and clam soup with apple, artichokes, carrots with fragrant herbs. To soak it up were slices of malt bread and creamed butter. Complementing these two courses was a Bourgogne 2010, Macon Uzichy ‘le Maritime. The main course was a plate of two kinds of meat: Ossetians bucco and fillet of beef (cooked, of course, at 56 degrees) ac-

late muesli, nuts and seeds. For this course we were served a dessert wine, the Vin de Glaciere by Pacific Rim ‘Columbia Valley’, USA. Whether intentional or not, Spisehuset 56° is a restaurant that is full of surprises, which are slowly unwrapped and revealed to the guests over the course of the evening. During my evening there, just as I thought I had been astounded plenty, I was told that this restaurant has something that perhaps none of its counterparts in Denmark has. Its very own bunker!! Yes, you heard right. The head chef proudly walked me through

the restaurant’s very own bunker, which is currently being used as the cellar and cold storage for the restaurant. During the summer, there are plans to host wine and beer tasting evenings ‘in the bunker’. It has to be said that the dynamic duo of Kristine and Kenneth Ellegaard seem to have mastered a completely new way to entertain their customers, while serving great food that brings out flavours of the country that even the locals were beginning to forget.

Airline anti-hero vehicle soars above expectations MARK WALKER

Flight (15)

Dir: Robert Zemeckis; US action/ drama, 2012, 138 mins; Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly, Bruce Greenwood, Brian Geraghty, John Goodman, Melissa Leo Premiered February 28 Playing nationwide


HERE’S NO questioning Academy Award winner Denzel Washington’s skill as a performer – he’s rarely less than formidable. However I must admit to having reservations: like Forest Whitaker and, in her later work, Nicole Kidman, Washington has a tendency to exhibit a sort of on-screen awareness. I suspect I can often detect his satisfaction at how technically perfect he considers his own performance. At times, there’s even something approaching smugness; a quiet enjoyment of his own brilliance. There’s even the occasional gesture or facial expression, seemingly too conscious, made just for the camera. It’s distracting at its best and at other times, nauseating. In Flight, Washington plays Captain ‘Whip’ Whitaker, who after a boozy night with one of his attendants, enters the cockpit of a passenger plane drunk and high. Cocksure and self destructive, he puts his rookie co-pilot on edge with some unwelcome showboating during a bout of severe turbulence, and then falls into a sweaty, alcohol-induced sleep. He awakes with a start when the plane malfunctions during descent. Caught in a free-fall nosedive with everyone around him descending into hysteria, Whip keeps his cool. Acting on pure instinct, he’s able to regain control of the plane to facilitate a landing in a non-populated rural area. The impact renders him unconscious and he later wakes up in hospital. The manoeuvre is proclaimed to be impossible, a feat of miraculous proportions - and Whip is hailed a

Looks like Denzel’s got his wings back as an alcoholic on autopilot

hero, having saved the lives of all but six of the 102 souls on board. A sneaky smoke in the hospital stairwell leads to a chance meeting with Nicole (Reilly), with whom an unlikely romance blossoms. The trouble starts when the airline, the plane manufacturers and the National Transportation Safety Board start looking for a scapegoat. A toxicology report shows a cocktail of drugs and alcohol in Whip’s bloodstream. Enter the consistently excellent Don Cheadle as his lawyer ... This is the first live-action film from Forrest Gump and Back to The Future helmer Robert Zemeckis in almost a

decade. His preoccupation with motion capture animation for such works as The Polar Express and Beowulf has kept him away from traditional modes of filmmaking. Flight sees him make a blistering return to form. Like vintage Scorsese, the narrative rockets along im a similar fashion to the frenetic latter moments of Henry Hill’s cocaineaddled days in Goodfellas with a 70s soundtrack that further supports the tone. Zemeckis portrays the events with the assuredness of a master, but with a sense of urgency that would befit a director half his age. Early on, particularly with a sub-

guest, it is both excruciating and genuinely moving. Flight is a fine film that lives and dies by its central performance. Just as well then, that like a Daniel Day-Lewis or Philip Seymour Hoffman, Washington proves himself here to be one of those actors who can disappear into a role so much that once the film’s engine is turning, you see only the character. And perhaps Whip Whitaker’s narcissism works in Washington’s favour because while there are those occasions in Flight when the actor seems to be quietly enjoying his performance, in this case, he’s fully justified.

This doesn’t look good, Parker. No, Milady! Parker (15) Dir: Taylor Hackford; US action/ crime, 2013, 118 mins; Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Nick Nolte, Michael Chiklis, Clifton Collins Jr Premiered February 28 Playing nationwide

T Jason is insistent that Jennifer have dinner on the table by five

plot involving Nicole’s pimp, landlord and porno pals, one gets the impression that the director is holidaying in someone else’s hell, by which I mean there’s a cartoon hyper-reality to the proceedings that doesn’t ring true. It doesn’t help either that the redemptive narrative is heavily illustrated with religious iconography. That aside, once we’re into the minutiae of Whip’s denial and paranoid, guilt-laden psyche, Zemeckis and Washington ably communicate a multitude of emotional complexities. When Whip returns home, having missed his ex-wife and son, and is treated as an unwelcome

HERE’S ALWAYS something devilishly exciting about a new Jason Statham movie. Sure, it’s no Shakespeare, but the baldy British action star has enough charisma and fauxCockney swagger to make films like the ludicrous Transporter and Crank series entertaining, in a silly, popcorn-chomping sort of way.

Parker is no exception. Based on the novel Flashfire from Donald E. Westlake’s hardboiled crime series, The Stath stars as the eponymous, hard-as-nails master thief with a questionable moral compass and a hulky scarred torso. After leading a successful million dollar heist at a local Ohio state fair, his crackerjack crew turn against him, leaving him bloodied, wounded and waiting for death by the roadside. Unfortunately for them, Parker is seemingly indestructible and limping with a vengeance. Deserting his girlfriend Claire (Emma Booth) and her mafioso dad (a cameo from the gravelly voiced Nolte), he hunts them down to lavish Palm Beach, Florida, and enlists

a fledgling estate agent Leslie (Lopez). Together they hatch a plan to catch his former crew while undertaking a jewellery auction heist. The first thing worthy of mention is that Parker’s plot, like all good/bad action B-movies, is utter balderdash. What could a shrill estate agent know about the criminal underworld? How could Statham survive a point blank bullet wound to the chest? And perhaps most preposterous of all, how could anyone ever believe the Brit’s lame Texan accent? Parker is the sort of film in which you need to leave any such questions of plausibility at the door and just enjoy the gaudy action spectacle.

The Oscar-nominated director of The Devil’s Advocate and Ray blends grisly film noir tropes with ultra-violent action set-pieces. Getting off to a rollicking start, as the narrative takes prominence, Parker sluggishly tumbles through the twohour running time and needs a good edit. Although J-Lo’s screen presence is magnetic, her character is entirely superfluous: merely an attractive window dressing. Is it a ‘good’ film? Of course not. The plot is derivative, the ‘stick ‘em up!’ dialogue cringeworthy, and the characterisation ignominious. Nevertheless, it’s mindless entertainment that you can’t help but succumb to.

1 - 7 March 2013

New this Week Quartet (7) Dir: Dustin Hoffman; US comedy/Drama, 2013, 98 mins; Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Billy Connolly, Tom Courtenay At a retirement home for former musicians, an annual concert is disrupted by the arrival of eternal diva Jean (Smith), who also happens to be the ex-wife of one of the residents. While endearing, Hoffman’s directorial debut is far from honest about ageing – all the seniors seem to be in tip-top form, and the film’s plot is almost painfully predictable. But the underlying message of always continuing to learn and grow is a charming one that will leave audiences grinning. JH

Book Your Tickets Zero Dark Thirty (15) Dir: Kathryn Bigelow; US action/drama, 2012, 157 mins; Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, James Gandolfini, Mark Strong, Chris Pratt The most unnerving, brilliantly acted thriller of the year, Zero Dark Thirty boasts an impressive inventory of ferocious visuals, an endlessly mesmerising performance from actress Jessica Chastain and a script that mercurially bulldozes any narrative clichés and instead offers punchy, naturalistically delivered political dialogue. Remorseless and torturous the film may be, but you won’t be able to stop watching. LR

The Master (11)

The Impossible (15)

Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson; US drama, 2012, 137 mins; Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Laura Dern The Master is one of the richest, most visually arresting and intellectually engaging films of recent times. While there are unmistakable references to scientology, the film is, at its core, universally applicable as a study in the exploitation of vulnerable peoples and the cyclical nature of subjugation. The film’s gorgeous Technicolor hues and flawlessly nuanced performances create an experience that will likely stay with you for a long time. MW

Dir: Juan Antonio Bayona; Spa drama/disaster, 2012, 114 mins; Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts, Tom Holland, Samuel Joslin The Impossible, based on the real-life experiences of a family caught in the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, rarely lets up the pace. It is sometimes hard to watch as the characters are severely and relentlessly battered by the water and the all-encompassing hopelessness that follows after the wave hits. The work pays off tenfold, resulting in a tough realism that no doubt informs the performances and the emotional clout of the entire film. See this, and then go and hug your kids. MW

Django Unchained (15) Dir: Quentin Tarantino; US action/drama/western, 2012, 165 mins; Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Samuel L Jackson Tarantino’s eagerly anticipated pastiche of the western epic is a bold, throbbing, exuberantly crafted piece of work – one that rattles cages with a vengeance. The film manages to conduct a joyride through old Dixie while simultaneously building up to a passionate climax steeped in heartbreaking romance and pacifistic, moral indignation. And while the Tarantino trademarks are aplenty, the film doesn’t buckle under their weight. KRG

Avoid like the Plague Pitch Perfect (15) Dir: Jason Moore; US comedy/musical, 2012, 112 mins; Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson Pitch Perfect looks and sounds exactly like every other musical comedy that features a singing or dancing competition. Kendrick plays a music-mad college freshman caught in a war between her university’s rival singing groups – and unfortunately, her performance is about the only redeeming factor in the film. The show-stopping numbers help offset its predictability, but ultimately, the film is a not-so-funny musical comedy that is more tone deaf than pitch perfect. JH

A Good Day to Die Hard (15) Dir: John Moore; US action/crime, 2013, 97 mins; Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Sebastian Koch, Cole Hauser Bruce Willis, presumably due to a clause in his contract with the Devil, returns as New York cop John McClane for the fifth time to battle evil terrorists. Coarse and monotonous where its predecessors were clever and complex, it’s no exaggeration to call A Good Day to Die Hard the worst film of the seemingly never-ending series. Perhaps most worrisome of all is the knowledge that the suffering is far from over and the franchise will continue. DS

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (15) Dir: Tommy Wirkola; US action/adventure, 2013, 88 mins; Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Zoe Bell, Peter Stormare It’s difficult to interest a viewer in this clunky, self-satisfied slice of CGI and 3D-enhanced horror comedy. Grown-up Hansel and Gretel sleepwalk through the motions as tough, sexy icons of medieval bounty hunting when they’re commissioned to rescue several children kidnapped by witches. Weapon aficionados will appreciate the gore, but if you happen to like your mashed-up entertainment with just a touch of intelligence, this isn’t the film for you. KRG

Also Playing Hitchcock (11) Dir: Sascha Gervasi; US drama, 2012, 98 mins; Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Danny Huston, Toni Collette Hitchcock, disappointingly, is less of a ‘Making of Psycho’ biopic and more something that might have been entitled ‘Alma and Alfie’ – a dramatisation of the director’s turbulent relationship with his wife. Hopkins and Mirren do their damndest to elevate a mediocre script, and their chemistry shines through the uninspired writing. But ultimately, the script is content to languish on the surface of complexity, in an ultimately dull, soap opera exposé of Hitch’s private life. MW


Beasts of the Southern Wild (11) Dir: Benh Zeitlin; US drama/ fantasy, 2012, 94 mins; Quvenzhané Wallis, Dwight Henry, Levy Easterly, Lowell Landes Based on the play Juicy and Delicious by Lucy Alibar, this film adaptation is essentially a charming children’s coming-ofage story – a moralistic fairy tale told through magical realism. Protagonist Hushpuppy’s dedication to her father is as heartbreakingly beautiful as young Wallis’s perfectly cast face, but the film’s occasional dabbling in sentimentality, along with an overbearing score and an overreliance on voiceovers prevents the film from achieving the transcendence it aims for. MW

Lincoln (15) Beautiful Creatures (11) Dir: Andreas Dalsgaard; Den doc, 2012, 83 mins Beautiful Creatures appears marred by teen-flick clichés and blockbuster gimmicks like that of Twilight or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which will unfortunately turn many potential viewers away from a genuine experience. The acting is above par, and you’ve got to love the guffaw-inducing dialogue. It’s far from an unforgettable film, nor is it an important or genre-renewing film, but isn’t half as dullwitted as one might fear. KRG

Dir: Steven Spielberg; US drama, 2013, 150 mins; Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader Lincoln is a well-formed and morally ambiguous study of character, principle and politics. It is often overly nostalgic about history, but confidently and even humourously refuses to shy away from the contradictions of its subject matter, and gratefully Spielberg has chosen collaborators who rise to the challenge of offering a contemporary lesson in the ways we have shaped our times, for better or worse.

The Newsroom DR2, Mon 20:30

FOR A WHILE now, a TV clip has been doing the rounds in which a disgruntled news anchorman (Jeff Daniels) espouses why America is no longer the greatest country in the world. Sure, it’s a typically overlong speech written by Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, The West Wing etc), the man whose characters mostly tend to be idealistic geniuses who can solve the Enigma Code in the blink of an eyelid. But for once, this three-minute diatribe is right on the money. It’s a brilliantly rhythmical lambasting, and the way it’s gone viral suggests it’s struck a chord across the political spectrum. Why? Because he’s a Republican (you’ll have to see it to appreciate that line). The Newsroom suffers from plodding romantic subplots, but delivers thanks to the extreme na-

ture of its subject matter: the real-life world in which we live in. Watch it and be hooked from the cool opening credits. Also outgunning fiction is Chinese Murder Mystery (DR2, Mon 23:10), which documents the alleged murder of a British businessman by the wife of a Chinese mayor, which is according to The Guardian “an extraordinary story” that “would be farcical, laughable even, a kind of ‘Chinese Midsomer Murders’, if there weren’t a real human tragedy at its heart”. Also rather farcical, but without any merits, is Zero Hour (DR3, Thu 21:30), the latest attempt to create the surreal nature of Lost through a mixture of time travel, historical intertwining and general weirdness.

Elsewhere, this week, Alex Polizzi: The Fixer (SVT2, Mon 18:00) sees the badass broad from The Hotel Inspector dishing out advice to families; we learn why the EU gives special trade privileges in Guatemala’s Sweet Deal (BBC World, Sat 12:30 or Sun 22:30); What If? (BBC World, Sat 16:30 DR2, Mon 20:30 The Newsroom or Sun 19:30) is a bit like Tomorrow’s World, but without the feelgood factor that the future is going to be brilliant; Tsunami: The Survivors’ Stories (SVT1, Tue 22:00) is a riveting account of the killer waves that struck Japan in 2011; and there’s a night of new teenage market series making their debuts on K7 on Saturday including the worryingly named Slutever (K7, Sat 22:50).
