'Also Soberen' with Druk and other films

Have you bombed October into OokSober for yourself this year? Then catching a movie this month is the perfect outing. This way you don't have to turn around or explain why you (temporarily) don't drink alcohol, but you can simply sink into the plush with a coke and a bowl of popcorn to enjoy a nice movie. We have listed a few recommendations for you. With the Danish film in front Busyie: Drunk!

There is a good chance that the subject of 'alcohol' will keep you busy during this period. For example, if you are reading this newsletter, you might think more about the role that alcohol plays in your life or if it is a topic of conversation with your friends. Do you like to immerse yourself in the theme of 'alcohol' and do you want to know how an alcohol experiment in a secondary school gets completely out of hand? Then the Danish film Druk is a must-see!


Druk (Drunk) is a Danish film by director Thomas Vinterberg with actor Mads Mikkelsen in one of the lead roles. The 2020 film won the Oscar for best foreign film. The film opens with images of a secondary school, where four exhausted, befriended teachers struggle through the school year in their own way. When they get together at a birthday dinner and find that each of them has something swing can use, the birthday boy or girl suggests an interesting theory: a Norwegian psychiatrist stated that people naturally have a low alcohol percentage in their blood. A permanent percentage of 0.5% would make us more fun, more productive and more creative. The four friends decide to test this theory by teaching their lessons in a continuous state of intoxication. The scientific experiment initially yields mainly positive results, until dosing becomes increasingly difficult. Of course, the situation cannot but escalate. Druk takes you - also thanks to the great acting of the four protagonists - on a thirsty journey where all highs and lows of alcohol use. With recognizable and funny, but also poignant moments. You sympathize and at times feel the urge for a drink, although that wish gradually dries up on its own. Busy makes you think and leaves a lasting impression.

Don't want to miss Druk? This film can be seen in various cinemas in the Netherlands until October 20.
