Also in Cinemas | Could ‘Tale of Tales’ be the festive flick you’re looking for?

No shortage of new releases this week – presumably distributors fancy their chances in a week full of choice instead of going up against guaranteed box office behemoth Star Wars next week, which is likely to break as yet unimagined records…

Given the season, there’s noticeably very little released in the way of family fare – only Tale Of Tales approaches that demographic, but does so with a 15 certificate. A loose adaptation of a Giambattista Basile story, it’s full of princesses, castles and ogres – and boasts an enviable international cast. Word is pretty favourable.

Also out is the latest offering from Ron Howard, In The Heart Of The Sea, which chronicles an event from 1820 in which a sperm whale leaves a ship and its crew stranded and thousands of miles from home. Despite a strong cast, reviews have been middling.

A similar response greeted Bradley Cooper’s latest vehicle, Burnt, in which he plays a celebrated chef who destroyed his reputation. Now he’s determined to win it all back …

Finally this week, there’s Tangerine, which charts the first day out of prison for Sin-Dee Rella and her best girlfriend – both of whom are transgender prostitutes surviving on the mean streets of LA. It’s a Christmas movie folks, so why not take the kids? Read this week’s review.

Thankfully, for those of you who do have kids, Cinemateket has you covered – in a seasonal series called Disney Kavalkade, there’s everything from Snow White & The Seven Dwarves to The Lion King. You can see Bambi this evening (Thursday the 10th) at 17:30 or on Saturday at 12:30 – and on Sunday at 12:30, you can see Dumbo. Also on Sunday, at 14:15, there’s the Danish On A Sunday series (always with English subs) showing People Get Eaten (2015). Tickets are 70/45 kroner and an extra 40 kroner will get you coffee and a pastry… For Cinemateket’s full program, see dfi.dk/Filmhuset.

Those of you who don’t have kids, you might think twice about getting them after you’ve seen Spanish horror Who Can Kill a Child?, in which an island of nippers murder the adults. It’s screening at huset-kbh.dk on Sunday at 19:00. (MW)

    How internationals can benefit from joining trade unions

  • Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals are overrepresented in the lowest-paid fields of agriculture, transport, cleaning, hotels and restaurants, and construction – industries that classically lack collective agreements. A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
