Searching for “Hannibal” previews I happened upon this great documentary with Mads, that french-german tv network “arte” did in 2011. It’s almost an hour long – the camera team follows Mads and his older brother around the quarter in Kopenhagen where they grew up, he talks about his childhood (in a working-class family, without any contact to art, except radio plays), how strange it was to meet the Queen at the Bond premiere and that he still feels like “Jenny from the Block”.
I never saw his first movie “Pusher” which he did, while he was still at filmschool and many of his other earlier or Danish films – so it was interesting to see some clips here, he really is a very good and versatile actor … and those ballet moves in the studio weren’t bad either for an “old man” 😉
I always thought he might still be a last degree Scorpio (yeah well, the things “Hannibal” does to your perception 😉 ), but seeing this I’m rather convinced that he was born after 01:30pm, and in fact maybe at 02:30pm, which would give him a Sagittarius Sun and an Aries Ascendant. He seems to be quite fiery at heart, despite his Scorpio Moon 😉
Hej Mads, if you ever happen across this, I’d really like to know! 😉
So don’t be put off, because the whole documentary has a german voiceover (it really sounds rather pleasant – as far as german can sound pleasant to anglophile ears 😉 ) you can hear quite a lot of what is spoken in english or danish anyway, and someone did an english translation – the link is provided under each of the four parts on youtube.
