- 1. What is youth?
- 2. What is love?
The content of the dream
- 3. - Ready for the Lake Race?
- 4. 3, 2, 1... go!
- 5. You must drink a full case
on the race around the lake.
- 6. One beer per person
at each bench.
- 7. Each team has an umpire
who ensures the case is brought back.
- 8. The umpire is not allowed
to drink the beers.
- 9. If you vomit as a team,
one minute will be deducted.
- 10. Wait, wait...
- 11. When you return to the bench,
you drink the last beer.
- 12. The winner gets the bottle deposits.
- 13. Take it down a notch.
- 14. Show some consideration.
- 15. Get over here.
- 16. A film by
- 17. They call him Fjonk.
- 18. Red hair, Thor's hammer necklace.
It was him and his friend.
- 19. - Where did he get the handcuffs?
- We don't know.
- 20. But he cuffed the poor ticket inspector
to a rail, and then they partied on.
- 21. It's okay to have fun,
but it's gone overboard.
- 22. Maybe we should have a zero-alcohol
policy all of next semester.
- 23. Right.
- 24. - How do they intend to uphold that?
- It's like shutting down the Freetown.
- 25. - Sune, you'll do the warm-up today.
- 26. - Come.
- Okay. Follow me. Let's go.
- 27. Speed it up.
- 28. - No cutting corners.
- 29. Looking good.
- 30. Open to the page of
- 31. 'In Denmark I Was Born'.
Open your books. Come on.
- 32. Let's hear how rusty you are.
- 33. In Denmark I was born,
here my home is...
- 34. What is psychology?
- 35. Can anyone tell me what psychology is?
- 36. Psychology is the scientific study
of human psychological processes -
- 37. - which is what we'll work on
the coming year.
- 38. Why do we behave, experience
and react as we do?
- 39. And the Industrial Age
is the period in world history -
- 40. - when Western societies -
- 41. - based on
their technological progress -
- 42. - started the process that created
the foundation for the modern world.
- 43. The invention of new technology...
- 44. Excuse me.
Weren't we talking about Churchill?
- 45. Yes, that's right.
Let's focus on that.
- 46. Churchill, the World War...
let's focus on that.
- 47. - World War 2?
- No, World War 1.
- 48. And thus... the Industrial Age.
- 49. - So, Churchill was First Lord of...
- This has gone bonkers.
- 50. Malthe, is there another lesson
you have to attend right now?
- 51. - Did you hand in your report?
- 52. - Did it feel good?
- It was okay.
- 53. Okay, I'm off.
I'm on nights all week.
- 54. - Anika?
- See you tomorrow.
- 55. Anika...
- 56. - Have I become boring?
- What do you mean?
- 57. Do you find me boring?
- 58. Compared to what?
When you were young or...?
- 59. Yes.
- 60. You're not the same Martin
I first met.
- 61. Right... okay.
- 62. Martin?
- 63. You have the seniors
in history, right?
- 64. Yes.
- 65. Uhm, they've tried to reach you
- 66. They want to meet with you.
Are you available this afternoon?
- 67. Yes...
- 68. Sure, that's fine.
- 69. What's it about?
- 70. Just talk to them.
- 71. Oh, hi. I thought I'd just be meeting
with a couple of you.
- 72. We've gathered those of us
who could on such short notice.
- 73. Yes... well...
- 74. So, here I am.
- 75. Our children may be called upon
to do an exam in history with you.
- 76. - We need to talk about that.
- Of course.
- 77. There's great pressure -
- 78. - on the admittance requirements
to the universities they want to attend.
- 79. So it's not exactly good news
if they have to take an exam with you.
- 80. I see.
- 81. I need you to elaborate on that.
- 82. It's so uncomfortable to say this...
but a C+ really drags down your average.
- 83. It's History A,
so it counts double.
- 84. And you seem so indifferent...
- 85. No, I'm not indifferent.
- 86. It's not easy to learn when you've got
your head stuck in your phone.
- 87. Maybe you should...
- 88. But I'll take note of it
and try to work something out.
- 89. Whether that means another teacher or...
- 90. I'd like to say something.
- 91. What you said about
the Easter Crisis...
- 92. Totally confusing. Right?
- 93. Jonas! Please put back the bike
when you borrow it.
- 94. - But I didn't. Ask Kasper.
- I never touched it.
- 95. - Where are you going?
- To Nikolaj's 40th. Didn't I tell you?
- 96. Oh, right.
- 97. It won't be late.
I'll take the car.
- 98. Okay.
- 99. - Anika, do you have a minute...
- Look, just stop it. There's pizza.
- 100. Just get one out.
- 101. - See you.
- See you later.
- 102. Bye, Martin!
- 103. Okay, I'm off now, boys.
- 104. Where are you going?
- 105. Out to dinner. Nikolaj's birthday.
Didn't I tell you?
- 106. Dunno.
- 107. It won't be late.
- 108. Mom's on night duty,
and there's pizza in the freezer.
- 109. - Hello? Pizza in the freezer.
- 110. Tommy?
So, are we leaving?
- 111. - Never saw you in a suit before.
- It's from the days with Mette.
- 112. The socks, too?
- 113. What?
Oh, right. No one'll notice.
- 114. How's she doing?
- 115. Mette?
- 116. I don't know.
- 117. It has to pee.
It can hardly walk anymore.
- 118. There...
- 119. There, Laban.
- 120. Yeah... there.
Have a little pee.
- 121. I just need to help it get started.
- 122. There, a little pee.
- 123. Good boy.
- 124. I'm driving. A soda, please.
- 125. - No lemon.
- No lemon, very well.
- 126. I have a bit of work to do
- 127. - The rest of us are having bubbles.
- Sounds great.
- 128. I have a champagne here from 2013.
- 129. There you go, a nice glass for you.
- 130. What characterizes this champagne
is the mineral notes.
- 131. If you close your eyes,
you'll envision ripe French fields.
- 132. - Damn, this is good.
- Draft beer and champagne.
- 133. Wait with the beer, okay?
- 134. But how are you? You're 40 today!
- 135. Okay... How the hell am I?
- 136. I can't complain.
I have a beautiful wife -
- 137. - I live by the sea,
and she's loaded.
- 138. We have three kids who sleep in our bed
and pee on us every night.
- 139. - I never sleep anymore.
- Come on...
- 140. It's true.
- 141. Let's shelf that for a second
and say congratulations and cheers.
- 142. - Cheers.
- Martin, this is great.
- 143. - Too bad you're so sensible.
- 144. It is, but the question is
- 145. More nonsense from you?
- 146. Yes.
I mean, it's not from me as such.
- 147. There's this Norwegian philosopher
and psychiatrist, Finn Skårderud...
- 148. - You're so lame.
- Look. He thinks it's sensible to drink.
- 149. - When you drive?
- All the time.
- 150. He claims humans are born with a blood
alcohol content that's 0.05% too low.
- 151. - Okay.
- But it's interesting.
- 152. Just to be clear... So 0.05%...
How much is 0.05%?
- 153. 1-2 glasses of wine, and
you should maintain it at that level.
- 154. So you should just keep drinking?
- 155. Yes. His claim is that
when you have a 0.05% BAC -
- 156. - you're more relaxed -
- 157. - and poised -
- 158. - and musical and open.
- 159. More courageous in general.
- 160. I could use a little more
self-confidence and spirit.
- 161. We all could. And isn't that what
you struggle with at school, Martin?
- 162. - What?
- The problem in your class.
- 163. Peter mentioned...
- 164. I just mentioned the school situation.
- 165. Okay.
- 166. - Listen, not to stick my nose in...
- Don't worry about it. It's fine.
- 167. But I don't know...
whether those things are related?
- 168. - Those kids just need to behave.
- Totally. A kick in the butt.
- 169. - Exactly.
- Martin, you're the man in charge.
- 170. Bury them in homework
and assignments and whatnot!
- 171. Paper, boom. Curriculum, boom.
- 172. Finished off with a talking-to.
They like it.
- 173. Right, Nikolaj?
- 174. I think it's about something else.
I think it's a bit bigger than that.
- 175. I think your problem with the class
is more banal.
- 176. I think you lack self-confidence.
- 177. - I think that's what it's about.
- 178. If I may interrupt?
We'll now serve the caviar.
- 179. Tonight we will serve
a Baerii caviar.
- 180. It's from Northern Europe,
locally harvested in Germany.
- 181. - We usually serve a vodka...
- And you'll also do that today.
- 182. This vodka would put
a smile on the Tsar's face.
- 183. It's an Imperia from Russia,
wheat-fermented and cooled -
- 184. - which crystallizes the water, giving
the vodka a velvety and rich texture.
- 185. That'll take us above the 0.05%.
- 186. - Thank you.
- There you go.
- 187. - I'll take the vodka...
- No, leave the bottle!
- 188. - Can you feel it...
- 189. It's entering your blood stream.
- 190. You feel all warm inside as it spreads.
It has quite a punch.
- 191. Martin, come on. Russia was built
by people who drink vodka and drive.
- 192. Grab some caviar and vodka.
You can drive home in a couple of hours.
- 193. No need to get worked up over that.
- 194. Cheers.
- 195. - Cheers.
- Listen... This is...
- 196. - This is amazing.
- This is great.
- 197. I told you! You and your beer.
- 198. I prefer draft beer.
What's wrong with that?
- 199. Nothing, but it's his 40th...
- 200. We've arrived at the main course.
Should we take a look at wines?
- 201. Yes, let's. We'll have a really, really,
really good glass of wine for Martin.
- 202. I have for you a Jérome Chezeaux,
a friend of the house.
- 203. A wine from the Burgundy district.
- 204. And as Robert Parker writes
in his 95-point rating -
- 205. - this wine encapsulates
the Burgundy spirit.
- 206. Thank you. I think we could use
a refill over there.
- 207. - Is it good?
- 208. - There you go.
- Thank you.
- 209. Martin, what's up?
What going on?
- 210. Not much.
- 211. I don't do much.
I don't see many people.
- 212. How are you and Anika doing?
- 213. She works nights a lot, so...
- 214. I don't see her much either.
- 215. There, there...
Take it easy, Martin.
- 216. I don't know how I ended up like this.
- 217. - I'm sorry.
- Don't worry about it.
- 218. - Have you considered someone else?
- No, I haven't.
- 219. She is... the mother of my children.
- 220. And she looked after my dad
when he died.
- 221. The plan was to hold
each other's hands when we get old.
- 222. We'll just have to see.
- 223. I'm sorry.
- 224. Martin, 12 years ago, when I came
to the school, you were a big man -
- 225. - heading for a research position.
We were all talking about you.
- 226. You had a grant and a PhD
all lined up, damn it!
- 227. - You did apply, didn't you?
- No. The kids were little and...
- 228. - I already told you all this, Tommy.
- Right. You did.
- 229. When I met him,
he was just a little shit.
- 230. Roaming the streets in jeans
acting tough as all hell.
- 231. - And he took dancing lessons...
- 232. - Dancing lessons? Was it ballet?
- Hey! It was jazz ballet.
- 233. - Jazz ballet, give me a fucking break.
- I did.
- 234. You took jazz ballet lessons...
So how's that going?
- 235. Shut up, some people
take up pottery.
- 236. He was out of this world.
It was totally professional.
- 237. Hey, hey, hey!
Martin, you're a beautiful man.
- 238. And you can dance.
Not bad. Let's see it.
- 239. It was crazy when you did the...
- 240. Go on, show us.
- 241. One time. One.
On the floor.
- 242. - Oh, I did my back in.
- Come on, Martin!
- 243. - Come on, show us something.
- Tommy, you know all the moves.
- 244. - Show it again.
- Do it yourself, man!
- 245. What the hell, okay.
- 246. It was something like... and down
and like this!
- 247. - Boom! Never saw it coming! Thank you.
- 248. Let's go!
- 249. - No running!
- Martin, you're lifting...
- 250. No running!
- 251. - One foot on the ground at all times!
- Like this.
- 252. 1, 2, 3...
- 253. - Hey! I didn't know what it was about!
- 254. - You're twice his weight!
- Next. Come on.
- 255. 1, 2, 3...
- 256. Get him down!
Get him down!
- 257. - Hi.
- 258. Hello there.
- 259. Okay, so I've gone over
- 260. Hello! Concentrate, please.
- 261. I've gone over our curriculum, and we've
been through the historic challenges -
- 262. - of the in... indru...
- 263. indrusti...
- 264. caused by the industrialization.
- 265. So let's go over
the curriculum together -
- 266. - and get an overview of it.
- 267. Martin!
- 268. Thanks for the other day.
What a night!
- 269. What are you doing?
- 270. I can't drive.
- 271. It was 0.05%, right?
Just wanted to try it out.
- 272. - Hi, honey. I'm taking Martin home.
- 273. - Hi, Amalie.
- He can't drive...
- 274. His car's in the shop,
so I'm giving him a lift.
- 275. But we need milk,
toilet paper, diapers -
- 276. - and straw for the rabbit cage.
- 277. Copy that.
Kisses, honey. Bye.
- 278. - Call the guys.
- I just wanted to try it.
- 279. There's a bigger perspective here.
- 280. We're on our way.
- 281. - Because Nikolaj has lost his mind.
- 282. Martin is a brave man who's decided
he wants to do something with his life!
- 283. We're coming now.
He hung up.
- 284. - What the hell?
- Calm down.
- 285. I just took a couple of sips, leaned
back and felt what that was like.
- 286. - So let's have a drink?
- No. So how was the class?
- 287. Well... I had
some verbal motor challenges.
- 288. So basically -
- 289. - we're testing out
the Skårderud hypothesis.
- 290. - Collecting evidence.
- 291. What if you get so wasted
you can't talk?
- 292. I had no problem talking.
- 293. We're not the first people in the world
to drink a little alcohol during the day.
- 294. Hemingway, for instance, he drank every
day until 8 p.m., and then stopped -
- 295. - so that he was fit to write the
next day. And his work was masterful.
- 296. So if we're doing this,
I guess that'll be our approach.
- 297. I think it's exciting.
- 298. So do I.
- 299. But we'll write a brilliant
psychological essay about it -
- 300. - so that it isn't altogether
- 301. - Okay.
- What do we write?
- 302. A study of
Finn Skårderud's hypothesis -
- 303. - that man is born with
a deficit of 0.05% BAC.
- 304. And now what the trial will consist of.
- 305. Daily consumption of alcohol
aspiring to uphold a level of 0.05%...
- 306. With the aim of collecting evidence
of psychological -
- 307. - verbal motor
and psycho-rhetorical effects -
- 308. - and study of increased
social and professional performance.
- 309. - We only drink during work hours.
- 310. It'll have to be.
- 311. Like Hemingway. No drinking
after 8 p.m. Or during the weekend.
- 312. What...
Otto, for God's sake.
- 313. Damn it... Otto.
- 314. Look! Damn it, Otto. You have
to speak up when you have to pee.
- 315. - Mom, I peed!
- Shh! Not now. You'll wake them.
- 316. Tell me before you pee. Not after.
And no yelling.
- 317. Listen... telling me after...
- 318. Why are you yelling?
I've slept all of 20 minutes!
- 319. You're waking the whole house. I haven't
slept through the night in 3 years!
- 320. - What's that?
- It's piss!
- 321. - Why didn't he pee before bedtime?
- What an annoying thing to ask.
- 322. - Do it yourself, if you're so clever.
- I intend to. Are you okay, sweetie?
- 323. - Nikolaj, breakfast is ready!
- Coming. Start without me.
- 324. Nikolaj!
- 325. Malthe, put your phone away unless
you want to share it with all of us?
- 326. - Uhm, no.
- Fine. Put it away.
- 327. And close the door.
- 328. We're having a test today.
- 329. I'd like to see where we're at.
- 330. - Josephine. Isn't your name Josephine?
- 331. The rest of you, pay attention.
What I'm about to talk about -
- 332. - we've already been through this year,
or last year.
- 333. Josse, there's an election with three
candidates, so who do you vote for?
- 334. - Do you follow?
- 335. Number 1: He is partially paralyzed
from polio. He has hypertension.
- 336. He's anemic and suffers from
an array of serious illnesses.
- 337. He lies if it suits his purpose and
consults astrologists on his politics.
- 338. He cheats on his wife, chain-smokes
and drinks too many martinis.
- 339. Number 2: He's overweight,
and he's already lost three elections.
- 340. He's had a depression
and two heart attacks.
- 341. He's impossible to work with
and smokes cigars non-stop.
- 342. And every night when he goes to bed, he
drinks incredible amounts of champagne -
- 343. - cognac, port, whisky and adds
two sleeping pills before dozing off.
- 344. The last one, number 3:
- 345. He's a highly decorated war hero.
He treats women with respect.
- 346. He loves animals, never smokes
and only has a beer on rare occasions.
- 347. Josse, who do you vote for?
- 348. - The last one.
- The last one. Number 3.
- 349. - And the rest of you?
- Yes, number 3.
- 350. Oh boy! You just discarded...
- 351. Franklin D. Roosevelt.
- 352. Winston L. Churchill. And thankfully
you elected this guy.
- 353. Hitler?
- 354. Focus! It's funny, but there's a point
to this, which is important -
- 355. - and which I hope
you'll understand some day.
- 356. The world is never as you expect.
- 357. Oh, we'll be busy, but let's see
if we can't make this work.
- 358. Jason, page 83.
- 359. In Denmark I was born
- 360. here my home is
- 361. from there my roots...
- 362. Stop!
- 363. It sounds like a Christmas party
at a swinger club. Come on.
- 364. Klara, seriously. You sing divinely,
but it's not about me hearing you.
- 365. It's about you listening to each other.
- 366. Stand up.
- 367. Close your eyes.
- 368. Try to be completely...
- 369. calm.
- 370. And plant your feet -
- 371. - solidly on the ground and...
- 372. There! Open your eyes.
- 373. Good morning.
- 374. Now we will sing with our ears,
our hearts, with our souls.
- 375. And... hold hands for a second.
- 376. Let the energy flow through you.
- 377. There. Find the common pulse.
- 378. I'll give you the note.
- 379. In Denmark I was born
- 380. here my home is
- 381. from there my roots
- 382. and there my world extend.
- 383. You windswept Danish strand
- 384. where ancient chieftain's barrow
- 385. stands close to apple orchard
- 386. hop and mallow.
- 387. Therefore you I love
- 388. Denmark, my native land.
- 389. - So?
- There's something to it, huh?
- 390. Definitely.
I was thinking you can sniff it.
- 391. Then it won't be on your breath,
and I think it'll have greater effect.
- 392. I don't know...
Don't forget to take notes.
- 393. - Tommy?
- I don't know where he is.
- 394. - Nikolaj, where's Tommy?
- He's off today. Coaching youngsters.
- 395. Have some water,
and we'll get back to it.
- 396. So, Specs, did your parents forget
to give you water again?
- 397. Okay.
- 398. No, you can't have this.
- 399. Hjalte! Come here.
Give Specs a sip.
- 400. Why don't you give him a sip?
- 401. Listen, Hjalte, if you want to play
in the matches -
- 402. - you'll be a good sport
and give Specs a sip.
- 403. If I'm to spend my spare time on you
little pissants, you better behave.
- 404. Yeah! Spread out, play each other.
- 405. Pay attention to each other!
- 406. They're hard on you, huh, Specs?
Stay here with me, okay?
- 407. Yeah. Take a little break.
- 408. Great!
- 409. And pass it back. Yes!
- 410. - Hi.
- 411. - You're drinking wine?
- I guess I am.
- 412. - Did you sleep until now?
- 413. - Are the boys home for dinner?
- I don't really know.
- 414. I'll make enough for the four of us.
- 415. Can I get you anything?
Coffee? Wine? Both?
- 416. - Coffee, please.
- 417. - Jonas is almost as tall as me.
- 418. He's missing this much.
Don't tell him.
- 419. He'll have to discover it himself.
He'll be out of control.
- 420. - Have you talked about fall vacation?
- I think we'll just stay home.
- 421. - Those of us who don't have plans.
- Or we could go canoeing.
- 422. - What?
- We've always done that.
- 423. - Yes, eight years ago.
- Yes! It's been too long.
- 424. The fresh air will do the boys good,
and maybe we should... What's up?
- 425. Nothing.
- 426. But I could ask you the same thing.
What's up with you?
- 427. Nothing.
I just want to go on fall vacation.
- 428. I'd better get ready.
- 429. Hello?
- 430. - Hi, Tommy.
- 431. - Look what I found.
- What the hell's that?
- 432. Booze.
- 433. - Where the hell does that come from?
- Beats me.
- 434. Not many teachers
have keys to this place.
- 435. I may have forgotten to lock up, but...
And there's a newspaper.
- 436. Let me see.
Yeah, you're right, dammit.
- 437. Someone's been having a nice time.
And look over here. A hip flask.
- 438. - Mogens, did you inform the principal?
- No, not yet.
- 439. - You didn't?
- No, not yet.
- 440. And here's another one.
- 441. Have any of you seen students
drinking on the school premises?
- 442. During school hours.
- 443. Some bottles were found
in the gym depot.
- 444. No? I don't assume anyone here has
a problem I should know about?
- 445. - Phew!
- I'm sorry about the depot.
- 446. I didn't know anyone went there.
- 447. - We have to be careful.
- 448. I haven't felt this good in ages.
- 449. Something's happening.
Even when I'm sober.
- 450. I think there's more to this.
Maybe even going a bit higher.
- 451. I think that's exciting.
- 452. Peter, nobody found out.
- 453. I haven't been teaching this well
- 454. I just know there's more to it.
- 455. Something more unreserved?
- 456. Yes. We don't know if we'll react
the same way to the same BAC.
- 457. True.
- 458. Peter, you love Klaus Heerfordt.
He was a very gifted pianist.
- 459. - Put him on, would you?
- 460. He could only play at the exact point
of being neither drunk nor sober.
- 461. And he was absolutely brilliant.
- 462. And you want to take this
to the Tchaikovsky level.
- 463. Yes.
- 464. But I don't know if we'll all react the
same way to the same BAC. Peter...
- 465. - Let's have a drink and find out.
- Easy now.
- 466. - Are we or are we not alcoholics?
- We're not alcoholics.
- 467. We decide when we want to drink.
An alcoholic can't help himself.
- 468. Exactly. I give you Klaus Heerfordt
and one of his drinking buddies.
- 469. It's huge.
- 470. Well?
What do we write down?
- 471. Part 2.
- 472. The Individual BAC.
- 473. A daily consumption of alcohol
at a variable and individual level -
- 474. - in order to achieve optimal
professional and social performance -
- 475. - and the ensuing collection of evidence
of psychological -
- 476. - and psycho-rhetorical effects.
- 477. Who goes first?
- 478. Well... That's the question...
- 479. Greetings...
- 480. dear, young friends.
- 481. I wish all of you a Happy New Year.
- 482. See you.
- 483. Bye, Martin.
- 484. Churchill liked his alcohol...
- 485. Thanks.
- 486. Whoops!
- 487. What the hell is going on?
- 488. Mornin'.
- 489. Oops.
- 490. Martin, are you okay?
- 491. I'll handle it.
It's just a nosebleed. There.
- 492. Martin, here we go.
- 493. - Am I bleeding?
- We'll add some compression.
- 494. You're bleeding a bit.
Yeah, there it is.
- 495. Just stick it up there. Up.
- 496. Cool.
- 497. Take that with you.
- 498. No worries. He's fine.
- 499. Okay, let's do this.
- 500. Can you guess what you have in common
with these three gentlemen?
- 501. - Girls, too?
- Yes, the girls, too.
- 502. And for those of you who've been asleep
for the past 18 years, this is:
- 503. General Grant, Ernest Hemingway
and good old Winston Churchill.
- 504. What do you have in common with them?
- 505. You drink like pigs.
Every week, all year round.
- 506. A lot of alcohol, so let me
ask you a few questions.
- 507. Jason, you're a feisty one.
How much do you drink in a week?
- 508. I don't know.
- 509. You can tell me, I won't tell anyone.
- 510. National Board of Health recommends
max. 14 units for men and 7 for women.
- 511. Jason, Jason, Jason, do you drink more
or less than recommended?
- 512. Well... I drink Thursday, Friday
- 513. and a bit on Sunday.
- 514. And Wednesday, if there's
a Champion's League game on.
- 515. So how much?
- 516. 14-15 drinks Thursday, Friday, Saturday.
And 4-5 Sunday and Wednesday.
- 517. - So how much is that in a week?
- In a good week 50-55.
- 518. - What was that?
- 519. 55. Okay. Caro?
What are the rules of the Lake Race?
- 520. - Is the question understood?
- 521. You race around the lake and drink
a case of beer against the clock.
- 522. - And if you vomit?
- As a team?
- 523. There's a rule?
- 524. You get a time deduction,
but if you vomit alone...
- 525. They add time, got it.
Okay, show of hands.
- 526. How many of you take part
in the Lake Race?
- 527. Everyone.
- 528. I swear, no one could tell.
- 529. This is interesting because
we're talking about Churchill -
- 530. - and besides writing 37 books
in 58 volumes -
- 531. - painting over 500 paintings, receiving
the Nobel Prize in literature -
- 532. - and winning WW2 as one of the world's
greatest commanders, he also said:
- 533. "I never drink before breakfast."
- 534. So, when you run around
totally wasted -
- 535. - throwing up in bushes and alleys,
don't feel alone -
- 536. - because you're in great company.
- 537. Grant, Hemingway and old Winston -
- 538. - could kick your ass in the Lake Race.
But the question is:
- 539. If you're to take a history exam, which
one of you ambitious youngsters -
- 540. - will flunk big time,
and who will pass?
- 541. In other words, who will do as
Hemingway and blow his brains out -
- 542. - and who will win a world war?
- 543. Josse, help me out here.
You know all about D-Day, right?
- 544. To the board, go on.
- 545. Give me three good reasons
for D-Day's success.
- 546. D-Day was the day -
- 547. - the Allied Forces
landed on a French beach.
- 548. - Yes, where?
- 549. - See you, Martin.
- See you.
- 550. I've booked a canoe trip.
- 551. Martin?
- 552. - What level are you at?
- Around 0.1, I think.
- 553. Fantastic.
- 554. Nooooo :( Said yes to a shift.
Didn't think you meant it
- 555. Seriously?
- 556. Can't you change it?
- 557. See you tomorrow.
- 558. Sigrid... the quote.
- 559. "To dare is
to lose one's footing momentarily."
- 560. "Not to dare is to lose oneself."
- 561. Are you ready?
- 562. Stand up.
- 563. Hand to your heart.
You too, Specs.
- 564. A lovely land is ours
- 565. with beeches green about her
- 566. encircled by the sea
encircled by the sea.
- 567. Off you go!
- 568. Hjalte!
- 569. Boys!
I'm busy over here.
- 570. Finish up already!
Hjalte! Finish it!
- 571. Goddammit!
- 572. Pass to Huxi!
- 573. Hjalte, nice pass.
- 574. Okay, listen up, boys.
- 575. Hjalte! Pass the ball to Kasper.
- 576. Go on! Run!
Huxi, pass to Bror!
- 577. Pass to Specs now!
- 578. Run, Specs!
- 579. Awesome!
- 580. Tommy!
You're the best coach in the world!
- 581. A sliding tackle!
- 582. You can totally do
a sliding tackle on this!
- 583. - Is that allowed?
- Sliding tackle!
- 584. Sliding tackle.
- 585. Are you afraid of my sliding tackle?
- 586. Take this! Yes!
- 587. I wish I had a couple of kids
running around in the garden.
- 588. I'd have liked that.
- 589. But you get all wound up and start
tidying up whenever you meet a woman.
- 590. - Just calm the fuck down.
- That won't get me any kids, Tommy.
- 591. You've got your students.
They're gonna remember you forever.
- 592. They're gonna forget all about us
the moment they're out the door.
- 593. Hi, Sebastian.
- 594. Hey. Are you okay?
- 595. Yeah, I was just studying.
- 596. I may not teach psychology,
but you sure don't look okay.
- 597. What's going on?
- 598. - Love troubles?
- 599. I've had my heart broken
a couple of times.
- 600. Sit down.
- 601. - But know this about girls...
- Peter, it's not that.
- 602. - What, then?
- All this.
- 603. School, homework, grades...
- 604. - I broke down during exams last year.
- You're worried about exams already?
- 605. I have to be.
I can't repeat another year.
- 606. Hey...
- 607. It's horrible being here again.
- 608. As long as I get a B+ average,
I can get into medical school.
- 609. But right now I'll be lucky to pass.
- 610. Ever considered having a drink
before the exam?
- 611. - What?
- Just a shot.
- 612. Or maybe two,
to take the edge off your anxiety -
- 613. - and to loosen your tongue.
- 614. I know it sounds crazy,
but I won't tell anyone.
- 615. - Go! We're way too close.
- Come on!
- 616. - Well done, Mom.
- They're falling apart in boat 1.
- 617. - We weren't ready!
- Go, go, go!
- 618. - This is nice.
- That one over there, it's flat.
- 619. - Are we there?
- Sure, just a bit lopsided.
- 620. - Want us to carry some of your load?
- Stop gloating, Martin.
- 621. Want me to grab the water?
- 622. Put it in here.
- 623. - In here?
- Yes, just...
- 624. Oh no.
I want another partner.
- 625. - Why do you and Mom get the big tent?
- And why are we so deep in the woods?
- 626. - Yessir!
- 627. - Does it live in Africa?
- 628. - Does it live in...
- Is it a...
- 629. - Don't skip my turn.
- We're in for a long night.
- 630. - Is it a sea cow?
- A what?
- 631. - You're supposed to narrow it down.
- I am.
- 632. Does it live in the Swedish woods?
- 633. - Does it live on the savannah?
- 634. It doesn't live on the savannah.
- 635. If it doesn't live on the savannah
nor in the Swedish woods -
- 636. - it must be a cuckoo.
- 637. - A cookie?
- A cuckoo. It's a bird.
- 638. - Is that it?
- 639. - You're supposed to narrow it down.
- Don't you get it?
- 640. - I get it!
- Does it live in the water?
- 641. Each time I ask,
I have one option less the next time.
- 642. So now you're down
to 1,224,000,000 animals.
- 643. - Come on, Kasper.
- A salmon.
- 644. What's happening?
- 645. - Are you crying?
- 646. Why?
- 647. I think I've missed you, that's all.
- 648. Me too.
- 649. I've missed us.
- 650. For a long time.
- 651. Maybe too long.
- 652. What do you have in store for us?
Are we having a drink first?
- 653. I spoke to a senior psychologist
at a leading hospital -
- 654. - about a chapter he entitled
'Harmful Consumption of Alcohol'.
- 655. - For a longer period of time.
- So you want us to stop?
- 656. No. I'd like for us to examine
the entire spectrum of alcohol.
- 657. I mean, if we're to do a report?
- 658. Skårderud talks about 'ignition'.
- 659. After 7-10 units -
- 660. - you either get tired and go home -
- 661. - or you get a restless mouth:
The more you get, the more you want.
- 662. You want to drink anything all the time.
- 663. I'd like for us to drink
to the point of ignition...
- 664. and beyond.
- 665. I'm talking about
the ultimate catharsis.
- 666. Total oblivion.
- 667. - I think I'm getting off here, boys.
- 668. I think it's time to get back
to my family.
- 669. I'm game.
- 670. - What are you up to? Are you drunk?
- No, we're not.
- 671. - Sure?
- 672. We're off to capoeira
and then to my Dad's -
- 673. - while you goof off
or whatever the hell you do.
- 674. Remember to shop for tomorrow.
- 675. - Sure.
- Fresh cod.
- 676. Fresh cod it is. Bye, kids.
- 677. Have fun at capoeira.
- 678. - Fresh cod.
- Fresh cod.
- 679. - Coming, Tommy?
- 680. - Have we got everything? Booze?
- It's all in here.
- 681. We'll start with this.
- 682. - Alcohol-free?
- It's all alcohol!
- 683. Seven, eight...
Add four lumps of sugar.
- 684. - Got it.
- Crush them. We need some ice.
- 685. - This is all very elaborate, isn't it?
- 686. We might as well drink
surgical spirit, then.
- 687. - What are you having?
- Sazerac. 5 cl bourbon, 1 cl absinthe.
- 688. The jazz musicians in New Orleans
created it -
- 689. - to look like a watered-down cocktail.
- 690. But it's pure alcohol.
I mean, it's...
- 691. - Why do you rotate the glass?
- To coat it with absinthe.
- 692. Then add this.
- 693. And now for the magic touch.
Hand me the orange.
- 694. You cut off a slice.
The peel contains a fragrant oil.
- 695. - I don't need it.
- Oh yes. Just rub it on the edge.
- 696. - Smell that.
- I'll grab that. Is it all done?
- 697. Hey, wait for the rest of us.
- 698. Holy crap!
- 699. Well, what are we gonna write?
- 700. Part 3.
- 701. The maximum BAC.
- 702. Study of high alcohol intake
aspiring to reach maximum level -
- 703. - with special focus
on observation of -
- 704. - emancipating psychological effects.
- 705. The study is conducted in private -
- 706. - to avoid negative interference
from and with the surroundings.
- 707. - Here's another round.
- Martin, don't you want a drink?
- 708. - I'll pass.
- Don't you want a drink?
- 709. There you go.
- 710. - See you.
- 711. Holy crap.
I've never tasted anything like it.
- 712. Holy crap.
- 713. - It's fucking strong.
- But also, good.
- 714. Are you sure about that, Martin?
- 715. There you go.
- 716. Holy crap. What is this?
- 717. Cheers!
- 718. Cheers.
- 719. - How's the dancing?
- Gone to hell.
- 720. Martin!
- 721. There we go.
- 722. Cheers!
- 723. Down, down, down.
- 724. - I'm not downing it. Just a swig.
- 725. We need to go higher.
To the top!
- 726. Martin.
- 727. Where is the fresh codfish?
- 728. I'm afraid we're out of fresh.
We've only got frozen.
- 729. Why haven't you got fresh cod -
- 730. - when all months with an R in them
are cod months?
- 731. Well, it may be in season...
- 732. Hey! Hello!
- 733. Hey, listen.
- 734. I once caught a cod with
my bare hands. I just grabbed it...
- 735. - It was like...
- There it is.
- 736. - What the fuck are you doing?
- It's right there.
- 737. I'll catch a crab ...
And I'll use the crab to catch the cod.
- 738. We have to stick to the rules.
- 739. Always put on a life jacket.
- 740. Why can't you swim?
You're a gym teacher.
- 741. I teach gym, not...
- 742. - Forget the cod. Let's go out.
- 743. - Come on.
- 744. - Peter!
- Not again!
- 745. Shut up!
- 746. See you in town!
- 747. Oh, what a jolly night!
- 748. We gotta eat. Gotta eat.
- 749. 1,000 kroner for some fish 'n' chips.
- 750. 2,000... 3,000.
- 751. Take your money. Drop it.
- 752. So I'll eat it.
- 753. Don't do that.
- 754. - Karen, give me 4747s.
- That's a Christmas beer.
- 755. 4747s!
- 756. - Last round!
- 757. You've had your fill of beer, dearie.
Good night and sleep tight.
- 758. Last round!
- 759. Get down from there!
- 760. He just wants to show us
his jazz ballet moves.
- 761. Dance...!
- 762. Are you coming?
- 763. Coming?
- 764. Ew, Nikolaj, you just pissed!
- 765. Aw!
- 766. - What's happening, Mom?
- Dad just peed in the bed.
- 767. - Ew, that's gross.
- Christ, just how drunk are you?
- 768. Hey, calm down.
Do we even know...
- 769. - Otto pees on me, too.
- You're so far out.
- 770. Let's go watch some TV.
- 771. Is it time to get up? Now?
- 772. - Nikolaj, what are you doing?
- Checking to see if I can drive.
- 773. Drive? That's the baby monitor!
- 774. - Help me get up.
- Hell no.
- 775. You're not fit to look
after your kids anymore.
- 776. There, there, sweetie.
- 777. Deal with this mess by yourself.
We're going to my sister's.
- 778. Nikolaj, do you understand?
- 779. - Hello. It's the neighbor.
- He's bleeding.
- 780. - Look, go back in...
- And bring Kenya. Get him up.
- 781. I can't...
- 782. Come on, get up.
- 783. I'll take him from here.
- 784. - Hi, Jonas.
- This isn't our house, Dad.
- 785. Let's go home.
- 786. - Just hang on...
- Hey, take it easy.
- 787. Okay.
- 788. You have to explain to the children
what happened, Martin.
- 789. Okay.
- 790. Well, I got a little drunk yesterday.
- 791. But Dad, you've been drunk
for a while, haven't you?
- 792. Yes.
- 793. Everybody knows now, I think.
- 794. - Please go to your rooms.
- But we just sat down.
- 795. Now.
- 796. What's going on, Martin?
- 797. I don't recognize you anymore.
- 798. I haven't recognized you
for a long time.
- 799. We don't talk anymore.
- 800. 10 minutes on a vacation,
and then you're gone again.
- 801. - Says you.
- 802. You've been shutting me out for years.
- 803. Okay.
- 804. I couldn't care less
if you drink with your friends.
- 805. That's not the point.
- 806. This entire country drinks
like maniacs anyway.
- 807. Don't you see that our problem is
that you're never really present?
- 808. You're completely invisible!
- 809. And when you have fun,
it's with someone other than me.
- 810. Are you also having fun
with someone other than me?
- 811. Do you have fun
with someone other than me?
- 812. Martin, I couldn't just...
- 813. I couldn't just sit here
and wait for you.
- 814. Don't sit here and wait for me.
- 815. Just get out.
- 816. Get out of here.
- 817. Get out.
- 818. Get the hell out of here!
- 819. What the hell are you saying to me?
What are you saying to me?
- 820. Nobody has to wait for me.
- 821. Nobody has to wait for me!
- 822. Study of Skårderud's theory that man is
born with an alcohol level 0.05% too low
- 823. ends here...
- 824. Due to immense,
negative social effects -
- 825. - and danger of ...
- 826. Alcoholism.
- 827. I've called for this extraordinary
meeting on very unpleasant grounds.
- 828. I hope you've had
a nice Christmas break.
- 829. I have received consistent reports
that one or more of the faculty -
- 830. - for some time now have been
consuming alcohol on our premises.
- 831. During the day.
- 832. So far, I've dismissed it
as pure fiction, but I...
- 833. - I'm running late...
- 834. Tommy.
- 835. - Tommy, what's up?
- Just a little tired...
- 836. - Maybe we should...
- I'll sit down here.
- 837. Too many students nowadays
are little boys -
- 838. - struggling to...
- 839. Go ahead... Sorry.
- 840. Tommy!
- 841. Laban.
- 842. Hey, Laban,
did you see who stopped by, huh?
- 843. Damn!
- 844. Give me a hug, old buddy.
- 845. - What the hell... did you clean up?
- 846. - There's some pasta in the fridge.
- Do you want to join me?
- 847. I'll... I'll just set the table.
- 848. - I think I have a couple of cold ones.
- 849. - Better leave them.
- Yeah, better to leave them.
- 850. That thing at school, what a mess.
I won't do it again.
- 851. I know I've been spaced out -
- 852. - but boy, it's been fun.
- 853. It did you good.
- 854. You were all fired up
and laid back at the same time.
- 855. - How's your back?
- The same.
- 856. It'll get better.
Soon you'll be doing this and this.
- 857. Tommy, take it easy.
- 858. Yeah right.
I'll take it easy.
- 859. But Martin...
- 860. You don't all have to stop by
all the time.
- 861. I'd rather you didn't.
- 862. I've got a handle on things.
I promise to call the school.
- 863. Okay. Fine.
- 864. Let's keep in touch, okay?
- 865. What?
- 866. This isn't worth anything.
- 867. What do you mean?
- 868. You don't want this.
- 869. But I'm rooting for you, Martin.
- 870. And for Anika. You know?
- 871. Martin and Anika.
- 872. It's always been you two.
- 873. And I know you love her, right?
- 874. Chin up, old buddy.
- 875. Promise me that?
That's how I remember you.
- 876. You can do anything.
- 877. Okay. Thanks.
- 878. But keep in touch, okay?
- 879. Hi.
- 880. Well...
- 881. Would you like something?
- 882. Hi.
Would you like something to eat?
- 883. Just a glass of white wine
for me, please.
- 884. - The house wine, yes.
- 885. I'm not hungry.
- 886. Kasper is okay
with two birthday parties.
- 887. - One at your place and one at mine.
- 888. - So you could invite your mom.
- I could do that.
- 889. - That is why you wanted to meet, right?
- 890. I also wanted to...
- 891. That's good. Fine. Good.
- 892. I miss you.
- 893. - I'd like to...
- One glass of the house white wine.
- 894. - I'd like to apologize.
- 895. I haven't been okay for a long time.
- 896. When I look at you now,
I can't help thinking about -
- 897. - how many years I've wasted
on feeling like that. So I apologize.
- 898. You said I'd pushed you away.
- 899. - If that's true, then...
- I can't do this.
- 900. - It's the biggest mistake of my life.
- I can't do this.
- 901. I thought we were going to discuss
Kasper's birthday and practicalities.
- 902. I just want to...
- 903. Talk about Kasper's birthday
or practicalities, or else I'm leaving.
- 904. Can I just say that -
- 905. - I wish we were still together?
- 906. Getting on with our lives.
We always could.
- 907. - That's a long time ago.
- No, it isn't.
- 908. Martin, that's a long time ago.
- 909. We're not a 100 years old.
I'm right here.
- 910. You're right there looking so beautiful.
- 911. It's not too late.
We have many years.
- 912. Anika...
- 913. And I love you.
- 914. I'm sorry.
- 915. You love me?
- 916. I can't.
- 917. I'm sorry.
- 918. Anika...
- 919. - I have to go now.
- 920. Can't you wait a bit?
- 921. Can I have my coat, please?
- 922. - Good morning, Martin.
- Good morning.
- 923. So, you have a history exam.
- 924. Well...
- 925. I can't give you anymore,
but then we have...
- 926. We have covered some stuff.
- 927. - Some stuff? Why do you say that?
- What do you mean?
- 928. - Haven't we covered everything?
- 929. It's like you changed gears.
- 930. Yeah, I guess I did.
- 931. We're totally ready.
- 932. Okay.
- 933. Thanks, Malthe.
- 934. I'm glad to hear it.
- 935. Well, happy studying.
And good luck with the exam.
- 936. Sebastian, you're next.
- 937. Pick a number, please.
- 938. - What number did you get?
- 939. Sebastian. You didn't get
your topic. It's Kierkegaard.
- 940. - I can't.
- Sure you can.
- 941. - No.
- Stop it. You'll do great.
- 942. - Do you remember anything?
- Not a thing.
- 943. You're tensing up.
- 944. - Drink this.
- I thought you quit.
- 945. Go on, take a swig.
But don't make a habit of it.
- 946. Have another swig.
- 947. Give me some, too.
- 948. Damn. It's force majeure.
- 949. A human being,
according to Kierkegaard -
- 950. - is a synthesis
of the spirit and the body.
- 951. Sebastian, have a sip of water.
- 952. Just to collect your thoughts.
- 953. The concept of anxiety, was it?
- 954. Well, Kierkegaard's concept of anxiety
- 955. - how a human being deals
with the notion of failing.
- 956. - And even more importantly?
- With having failed.
- 957. You must accept yourself as fallible -
- 958. - in order to love others and life.
- 959. Sebastian, can you give us an example?
- 960. Yes. I myself have failed.
- 961. Down you go.
- 962. Come here, Laban.
- 963. I love this variegated world
- 964. despite its need and strife
- 965. to me the Earth is beautiful
- 966. as back in the patriarchs' time.
- 967. I have cried like others from pain
- 968. because my bubble burst...
- 969. You got a B.
- 970. But the bubble isn't the world
- 971. it's not the world that's curst.
- 972. Well done, Sebastian.
- 973. Congratulations.
Now get out there and party.
- 974. If we had nothing to fight for
- 975. what would then you and I be?
- 976. And that's why I love this world
- 977. despite its need and strife
- 978. to me the Earth is beautiful
- 979. as it was at creation's time.
- 980. - Hi, Martin.
- Hi, Peter.
- 981. - Let's... I mean, as we're pallbearers.
- 982. A lovely land is ours
- 983. with beeches green about her
- 984. encircled by the sea,
encircled by the sea.
- 985. Her hills and vales are manifold.
- 986. Her name, of old, is Denmark
- 987. and she is Freya's home
- 988. and she is Freya's home.
- 989. To Tommy.
- 990. What would Tommy have done now?
- 991. Hi. I've spoken to Kasper.
- 992. - A table for three?
- 993. - Would you like to start with a drink?
- 994. A drink?
- 995. I need a Juvé y Camps.
- 996. - How are you doing?
- 997. I think a lot about that guy.
- 998. How are things at home?
Has the dust settled?
- 999. - I think so.
- 1000. It's like we have
a new kind of connection.
- 1001. Really? Did the kids move out? Or
are they sleeping through the night now?
- 1002. Well, it helps
that I've stopped wetting the bed.
- 1003. It's the little things
that make all the difference.
- 1004. Good tip.
- 1005. I think we're doing fine.
- 1006. Even Amalie has finally admitted -
- 1007. - that we've come a long way.
- 1008. I miss you too
- 1009. - I'll have some more shrimps.
- Why do shrimps have roe, anyway?
- 1010. - Nobody likes it.
- I could live on roe.
- 1011. - Are you scared of getting fat?
- Not at all.
- 1012. After three dinner dates with that
woman, you're all cocky. Did you hear?
- 1013. - Peter's dating some broad.
- 1014. - Did you go to the Christmas bash?
- 1015. She was interested in church modes.
- 1016. So I took her to the woodwork room
and put her in a clamp -
- 1017. - and then I gave her
a bit of the old D sharp...
- 1018. You're so lame!
- 1019. It's that little pottery sub,
- 1020. Pottery?
She's a skilled art teacher.
- 1021. But she is.
- 1022. - Why do you call her little?
- She is little.
- 1023. A lot...
- 1024. My mouth is so dry
I could sandblast a bike.
- 1025. Waiter!
We'd like the wine list.
- 1026. There come the graduates.
- 1027. You're right!
There come our graduates!
- 1028. Congratulations!
- 1029. I think Tommy is rooting for you and me.
- 1030. Me too...
- 1031. Cheers!
- 1032. What are you doing?
- 1033. Did you see them throwing me
into the air?
- 1034. They threw me into the air.
- 1035. Down! Down! Down!
- 1036. Martin.
- 1037. Now is the time.
Let's dance! Come on.
- 1038. Now! Show me the old moves.
