Decent character piece - The Commune review by dl

Spoiler Alert
13/11/2016

While not quite as good as i hoped and not quite on par with Vinterberg’s previous outings, he’s still a fine director that still manages to get under your skin with some very out there and very awkward themes, this is no different centering on the beginnings of setting up a commune in 70’s Copenhagen and in the introducing of some well drawn out characters, its all pretty decent and performed extremely well, it does work best when the group are together round the dinner table making jokes and arguing points, and when it finally kicks off you really feel the tension and unease round this table and the effect it as on these individuals, these moments where great but for me the film was far to focused by the main couples mid-life crisis/breakdown and in doing so taking its centre stage far to often.Its not quite a blip on Vinterberg’s career but just comes off a bit to cliche in parts, he also nearly managed to pull a tear from my eye.7/10
