Movie Review: After the Wedding

4 out of 5 stars
This was an interesting look at the human condition and what really drives us. Do humans always sell out to money, or do they consider the greater good? How do we determine where our life is best served, or is that decided for us?

The story is that of Jacob Pederson, who manages an orphanage in India. He loves his children but the facility is in desperate need of funding. He is sought out by an investor that is apparently impressed by what he does and makes a journey to Copenhagen.

Upon his arrival he is taken to a fantastically lavish hotel and then meets with Jorgen Hannson, a successful entrepreneur who wants to fund Jacobs orphanage. The two talk shop for a bit and then Jorgen says he has to go as he is prepping for his daughters wedding the following day. He invites Jacob to come.

Upon arriving late to the wedding due to traffic, Jacob catches the end of the wedding. He becomes the focus of Helene Hanson, Jorgen's wife. The glances become more obvious and after a period of time, you realize there is something that has happened between these two in the past.

For the rest of the story, please see for yourself. The link to the movie is here The movie is deep and thought provoking. I will admit at times it was drawn out, but for the most part, it kept my attention. If you do decide to watch it, don't quit...give it a chance and see it through, you may get something from this little gem.

Until next time.
