Mads Mikkelsen plays Jacob, a relief worker in India who makes a reluctant return home to Denmark on a business trip. He has to court a rich big shot and persuade him to contribute a million dollars -- and if he doesn't succeed, his orphanage will close and scores of kids will be left stranded. This story element is, in itself, stressful, as Jacob is about the last guy you'd send to schmooze anybody. He's not a glad-hander. He's barely civil. And the billionaire, Jorgen turns out to be formidable: big, confident and no-nonsense and clearly used to making people jump. Jorgen's daughter's wedding is the next day, and he invites Jacob to attend, saying that it'll give them a chance to get to know each other better. Jacob goes because there's no saying no to a billionaire, and ends up walking right smack into his past, in the form of Jorgen's wife (Sidse Babett Knudsen). There are secrets, and secrets within secrets, tears and revelations -- again, not a soap opera, but life and human emotion on a grand scale. The characters are fascinating and nuanced and one or two scenes in "After the Wedding" will stay with you for the rest of your life.
