Edition 2003
115' - 2003 - Drama - Dialogue: Norwegian, Danish, French, Swedish
Christoffer Borch-Moeller is born into the Danish upper class as the fourth generation of a family who owns the largest steel ill in the country. He lives in Stockholm, owns a restaurant and is happily married to Maria, a Swedish actress. When his father suddenly commits suicide, Christoffer's mother wants him to run the family firm. He reluctantly agrees to do so, against Maria's will and much to the surprise of his elder sister's husband, who had expected to take over. As the Managing Director of the steel mill, Christoffer is forced to take drastic steps as he attempts to save the company from bankruptcy, resulting in clashes with his relatives and his wife. His choices have great emotional and personal consequences and so his inheritance comes with a rice tag that Christoffer ends up paying in full. This is the second installment of a trilogy dissecting Denmark's class system. The first, The Bench (2000) was a study of Copenhagen lowlife set in one of its blue-collar districts.
