A Soap 18 En Soap Regional Premiere
Director: Pernille Fisher Christensen, Feature, 104 minutes, Denmark, 2006, Danish with English subtitles.
Winner of the prestigious Silver Bear at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, this is the tale of 32-year old Charlotte and her neighbour Veronica.
Charlotte’s a mixed up woman who gets through the long nights since leaving her boyfriend with one night stands, dancing around her flat and trying to work out exactly what she wants to do with her life. Veronica is a pre-op transsexual who likes to keep to herself looking after her little dog, watching her favourite soap on TV and raising money for her gender-changing operation.
Crafted as a soap opera in episodes, the story evolves when the pair begin a new friendship, and forged through drinking games, heart to heart conversations, fights and relationship issues, they soon end up as the main characters in their own turbulent love story...
