The Celebration

Have fun, nothing is going on

This film, real-life story, was selected as the Danish entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 71st Academy Awards in 1998 in Cannes. It was also selected for Golden Globe Awards and Thomas Vinterberg proved himself as an exceptional talent of European cinematography. The Celebration was filmed according to the rules of Dogme 95 which formulated Vintergerg together with Lars von Trier. Moreover, it was listed among the 500 best films of all times by Empire magazine and the theatre adaptation was not long in coming. The Celebration made it to the international stages in 2000 and seems to have remained for some time with us. A Nordic drama, about the fact that a pleasant family celebration of round birthday does not have to end up with a hangover, will literally take your breath away. It is a story of the idyllic life of a well-situated Danish family that can within one family celebration toast, turn into a nightmare from which there is no waking up.  In Moravian Theatre, directed by the young and talented Mikoláš Tyc.
