Lewes Film ClubA change of pace after last year's Far From The Madding Crowd, Thomas Vinterberg's new film presents the story of Erik and Anna, an academic couple who set up a Danish commune in bohemian 1970's Copenhagen. What follows is a compelling clash between their personal desires and the dreams of communal solidarity: as their ideal of tolerant socialist living is eclipsed by an earth-shattering love affair, putting their relationship, their community and the commune to its greatest test. Both amusing and thought provoking.
