In 1998 Thomas Vinterberg's burst on to the European art house scene with Festen, a film that peeled away the papered cracks in a family until they broke apart. After the success of last years Far From the Madding Crowd, Vinterberg returns to his native Denmark for The Commune. Recycling themes from Festen, the film is inspired by the directors time living in a commune in the 70's, and the joys and failings of living in unity.
