Rating: B -- Bier's not timid about tossing any number of volatile ingredients into an already-simmering pot.

Rating: 3/5 -- Un buen ejemplo de cómo se puede hacer una película madura y atrapante con el mismo argumento base de una telenovela mexicana. Full Review
Reminiscent of Ingmar Bergman with its substantive style, AFTER THE WEDDING provides a focused perspective of life. Full Review
Behind The Lens
One of the more interesting themes of this movie is the question of which is more important to a cause, the man or the money. Full Review
Rating: B+ -- Yes, they throw more than rice at this Wedding, but it's all in service of an astutely observed and sometimes shattering human drama.
Bier and Jensen whisk us away in an unexpectedly thought-provoking direction....[With a] powerfully understated denouement.
[T]alented filmmaker Susanne Bier, armed with an outstanding compositional sense, keeps control over the storms of melodrama... -- Grade: A-
Danish director Susanne Bier continues her tradition of finely crafted emotional films with this Oscar-nominated drama. In AFTER THE WEDDING, a businessman (Rolf Lassgard) offers to make a huge donation to an Indian orphanage. Unfortunately he makes some unreasonable demands on the owner of the orphanage (CASINO ROYALE's Mads Mikkelsen), including a bizarre request to return to his native Denmark to participate in a wedding. Once he arrives, he realizes that he is caught in the middle of an event that is far more than it appears. Biers's film was so highly praised that it led to her making her English-language film debut, the Halle Berry film THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE.
