The Clip For Thomas Vinterberg’s ‘THE COMMUNE’

May 20, 2017

Check out this clip that Deadline has released for The Hunt‘s Thomas Vinterberg’s new film THE COMMUNE, which can be seen down below!

This period drama is loosely based on Vinterberg’s childhood experiences growing up as part of a collective in 1970s Copenhagen. In the clip, the “house rules” are discussed with cheeky input by one of the young potential renters.

Starring Trine Dyrholm (who won the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the Berlin Film Festival) and Ulrich Thomsen, reteam with Vinterberg after his 1998 Festen. It centers on a professor and his TV newswoman who suggests they invite their friends to come and live with them in a recently inherited house. She’s hoping to evade the boredom that has begun to seep into their marriage. Before long, a dozen women, men and children move in, make collective decisions, engage in discussions, frolic together– and rub each other the wrong way.

Vinterberg co-wrote the film with frequent collaborator and A War Oscar nominee Tobias Lindholm. He said:

“[The film] is a love declaration to my childhood. There was a time when people were sharing and those days are over and I miss that. It’s a film about the impermanence of things. Time disappears, love disappears, life disappears and things are suddenly over and I’ll never learn to figure out why.”

Magnolia will release the film this weekend in New York and Los Angeles with further theatrical runs slated at the beginning of June.
