For this week’s Cinemavino, it’s one of the more decorated movies we’ve covered in a good long while: Another Round won the Academy Award for Best International Feature, and Thomas Vinterburg was nominated for Best Director. After a steady stream of Halloween flicks, this art house flick was a nice palate cleanser.
The crux of the story has four middle-aged guys testing a (rather dubious) hypothesis that humanity operates better with a blood-alcohol level of .05. So, they buy breathalyzers and try and to maintain a nice buzz. Comedy hijinks, deep philosophical moments, and poignant drama all ensue.
We’ve worked in the booze business, so this film gave us even more to talk about. After the break, we come back a little more activated to see if it enhances our podcasting. Also, we share personal stories of getting blotto that resonate with the events of this film. This is our most personal Cinemavino in a good long while.
As for vino, we kick things off with the Dry Creek Cabernet. It’s bold and dry, much like the humor of this film. To learn a little more, click here.

Now, kick back and enjoy another fine episode of Cinemavino!
