»Baby« is an adaptation of Danish author Kirsten Thorup's award-winning first novel, the gripping tale of rootless young urbanites and their desperate struggle to find and understand love. The jagged, dynamic narrative portrays their impulsive, irrational lifestyle, their dilemma as immature adults in a society whose core values are efficiency and fitness for work. Their hunt for love, sex and money evoke moving, provocative scenes.
The cast features top Danish actors (Ulrich Thomsen: »Festen«/»The Celebration«; Jesper Christensen: »Bænken«/»The Bench« and »Små ulykker«/»Minor Mishaps«; Maria Rich: »Små ulykker«. Add to that the legendary cult rockers Sort Sol and the result is an uncompromising, raw, poetic film that both charms and shocks.
