Dirty Dancing

Sing-a-long-a Dirty Dancing
  • 3 stars
  • 1987
  • US
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Emile Ardolino
  • Written by: Eleanor Bergstein
  • Cast: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes

The plot – in the summer of 1963 bad boy Johnny (Swayze) meets good girl Baby (Grey) and teaches her hip grinding, eventually winning the respect of her parents. Sure it's full of stereotyping, bad dialogue and a pre-teen sugar coated prurience, but decades on Dirty Dancing still has the ability to send a generation of women all gooey.

  • Directed by: Mikkel Nørgaard
  • Cast: Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Fares Fares, Sonja Richter

Carl (Kaas), a world-weary Danish detective, becomes obsessed with tracking down the missing and presumed-dead politician Merete (Richter). This late arrival to the Scandi-noir party is functional and somewhat superficial, with a lot of violence directed at women, but Kaas makes for an appealing protagonist.

Sandra (Cotillard) is told that unless she can persuade her co-workers to forgo their much-needed bonuses, she will be made redundant; she has only a weekend to win them over. Unfussy, compassionate and topical drama from the Dardenne brothers, with a touching performance from Cotillard as the steely, pill-popping heroine.
