Anders Thomas Jensen at IFFR
A Danish soldier disappears on a peace mission in Afghanistan. An unmentionable, traumatic event causes shockwaves through his whole family. Moving, humane drama, with a beautiful leading role for Ulrik Thomsen. By the director of Open Hearts.
Clash of Egos
Satirical comedy in which a touchy divorced father wants to take his kids to the cinema, but finds himself in the wrong art film. When he wants to take his displeasure out on the director, the characters end up in a power play, poking fun at the film metier.
Men & Chicken
Two brothers go in search of their father in this mysterious and hilarious, philosophical and absurdist horror comedy. By far the weirdest Danish film in recent years, performed by a top cast with infectious pleasure (Mads Mikkelsen, Nicolas Bro, Nikolaj Lie Kaas) and directed by the maker of Adam’s Apples.
Riders of Justice
Act of revenge devised by grumpy widower (Mads Mikkelsen) gets out of hand – with therapeutic consequences. Bittersweet, absurdist tragicomedy.
