The idea of an actual winter holiday for students arose at a time when more Danes were given the opportunity to not only take summer holidays, but also take time off in the winter and go skiing abroad. This meant that parents exempted their children from teaching in different weeks over the winter, which was impractical in terms of planning schooling. Therefore, it was decided to officially gather a number of days off, which had previously been spread over the school year, into a full week and call it the Winter Holidays.
As it is the local politicians who decide when the schools take holidays, not all Danish children have winter holidays at the same time. For most, these holidays are in week 7, but in some places in Denmark it is in week 8 that you can go on winter holidays. Not everyone uses the winter holiday to go on a skiing trip, but it is very typical that the winter holiday means spending time with the family, coziness and wonderful experiences.
We at Kino Club have gathered a good mix of films, so no matter what type of film you are into, there is something to see for everyone during the winter holidays. Below you will find just 3 quick and the rest of the collection you can find at Kino Club.
HARDHITTING ACTION DRAMA: Final Mission - Hard-hitting action with the legend of all legends: Steven Seagal. Also, a good choice to spice up the very pink mood on Valentines Day.
LOVELY ROMANTIC COMEDY: Begin Again - Comedy with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo. Lots of great music (provided by Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine , who has a role in the film) and with a charming New Yorker setting.
SOMETHING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY: HOODWINKED! - Most people probably know the fairy tale about The Little Red Riding Hood - or do they? In HOODWINKEED the traditional fairy tale is turned upside down well and thoroughly.
