Director: Christoffer Boe, Feature, 88 minutes, Denmark, 2005, Danish with English subtitles.

From the multi-award winning director Christoffer Boe (Reconstruction, NLFF 2004), this futuristic mystery tells the story of a brilliant pianist, Zetterstrøm, who’s returning to Copenhagen after a lengthy absence for a gala concert.

Imagine Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind crossed with Stalker and you’re halfway there as Boe’s amazingly audacious low-budget vision invites us into the head of our hero as he tries to unlock the secrets of his fractured mind.

“One of the most original movies to come out in years...the kind you’ll be thinking about for weeks, months, even years afterward.” - Filmthreat.com
