Truly Human (Et Rigtigt Menneske)

90' - 2000 - Drama - Dialogue: Danish
Director: Åke Sandgren With: Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Peter Mygind, Susan Olsen, Troels II Munk, Line Kruse
Walter is at his wit’s end. On his way to work he has been approached by a young man who knows only a few words of Danish and seems not to speak any other language at all. The young man sticks to Walter like a limpet and it won’t be the last time they meet. What Walter doesn’t know is that the stranger is a creature dreamt up by six-year-old Lisa, Walter’s daughter. P lived in the wall cavity of her room. But when the little girl is killed in a tragic road accident and the family’s old flat is demolished P magically materializes. He heads off into the world to learn to be truly human, and intuitively seeks out the traumatized parents who find it desperately hard to get a hold on their own lives and impossible to come to grips with the death of their daughter. (Claus Christensen)
