This gripping Academy Award nominated drama from acclaimed Danish director Susanne Bier (Open Hearts, Brothers) was the highlight of NLFF 2006 and went on to do great business at the UK box office.
Jacob Petersen (Casino Royale villain Mads Mikkelsen), has dedicated his life to helping street children in India, and when the orphanage he works at is threatened with closure, a mysterious Danish businessman offers a much needed $4m donation.
The condition? That Jacob must return to Denmark and attend the wedding of the businessman’s daughter. Accepting the unusual offer, he heads back only to meet a past he thought he had left far behind….
“Powerful…emotionally complex and gripping”
