Det gode liv (Eva Mulvad, DK, 2011)
Foto: Pedro Cláudio

Two women, mother and daughter, live on the sunny Portuguese coast. They have been exceptionally wealthy all their lives and have relished the ¿good life'. There has been ample pleasure and a total absence of work. Now, however, they have one big problem. Their wealth has run out. How do they now cope with a life of poverty after having been born into wealth? How do they manage to find a job and keep it, when nobody in the family has ever worked? And who is to blame now that the sweet and dreamy life has turned into a nightmare?
