New Danish releases October

NEW RELEASES. This month Danish cinema takes us on a wild chase through the alleyways of an African slum, gives us a wickedly funny portrait of men pondering over life and their commitments, and updates us on the latest antics of the notorious small-time crooks, the Olsen Gang.

October sees the release of three Danish feature films, Vibeke Muasya's feature film debut and drama for children 'Lost in Africa', Nikolaj Arcel's comedy 'Truth about Men' and Jørgen Lerdam's 3D animation 'Olsen Gang Gets Polished'.
