After the Wedding Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A multi-millionaire wants to know how much his money can really buy in this drama from Danish filmmaker [[Performer~P188572~Susanne Bier~susannebier]]. Though born and raised in Denmark, Jacob Peterson ([[Performer~P224932~Mads Mikkelsen~madsmikkelsen]]) has made a life for himself in India, where he runs an orphanage for homeless children. While Jacob cares little for money, raising funds is part of the responsibilities of his position, and when he learns that Jørgan ([[Performer~P200329~Rolf Lassgård~rolflassgård]]), a wealthy Danish businessman, is willing to donate four million dollars under the condition that he meet with him in person, Jacob grudgingly hops a flight back home. Once in Denmark, Jørgan insists that Jacob attend the wedding of his daughter the next day; at the celebration he meets Jørgan's wife, Helene ([[Performer~P236445~Sidse Babett Knudsen~sidsebabettknudsen]]), whom he recognizes as someone he knew many years ago. As Jacob finds himself revisiting a past he would prefer to forget, he discovers that Jørgan has an ulterior motive for bringing him to Denmark -- the wealthy man is in poor health, and while the donation will help ease some of his guilt over a life of avarice, he's also looking for someone to take over as Helene's husband after he dies. Efter Brylluppet (aka After the Wedding) received its North American premiere at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
