Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...a highly entertaining film that manages to be brutally honest about human motivation and the compromises we're willing to make to hold onto the people we love for as long as we can.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The odd cropping of the closeups is Bier's way of acknowleding that the slices of life we see onscreen can't begin to convey the complicated messiness of existence.

...a powerful drama about secrets... At times it threatens to veer into soap opera, but the filmmakers and actors keep it true.

After the Wedding is a sad film in many ways, but it's also surprisingly uplifting. Thanks to [director] Bier and her cast, any tears shed in the audience will be perfectly natural.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The plotting in After the Wedding is melodramatic, even a bit soap-operatic. Yet, unlike many Hollywood features and TV soaps, the material is done in a way that seems refreshingly real and honest.

It's Mikkelsen who anchors the movie, as his moody Jacob tries to reconcile his past mistakes with his current passion for his students in India.

Yes, they throw more than rice at this Wedding, but it's all in service of an astutely observed and sometimes shattering human drama.

Ted Murphy
Murphy's Movie Reviews

On its own terms and apart from the awards hoopla, AFTER THE WEDDING is a decent, if flawed feature that works mostly due to the efforts of its talented cast.

Bier's not timid about tossing any number of volatile ingredients into an already-simmering pot.

You leave the movie feeling exhausted, argumentative and exhilarated, surely the sign of a powerful film in any language.

Initially threatening to turn into the most shameless of melodramas, it instead builds upon its rickety foundation with such dexterity and grace that it eventually emerges as a deeply moving experience.

An emotional masterpiece whose end is impossible to guess.

Just when we start to find these people interesting and credible, the plot tosses us something we don't believe for a minute.

It's a traumatic journey peeling away those layers of secrecy, repression and regret, but the actors are equal to those hyper-emotional demands. After the Wedding is a story told with unsparing honesty and skill.

May be the strangest and most surprising film you'll see this year, in that its character development runs counter to the expectations aroused by its narrative sequencing.

Director Susanne Bier is obviously fond of extreme close-ups (people smoking, people drinking, people licking their lips), especially focusing the camera on the actors' eyeballs too many times to count. I can overlook this annoying little technique becaus
