Carlo and Ester

Helle Ryslinge, Denmark, 1994

108 min.DK/Feature

The title characters remain forever young at heart and even in love, but everybody frowns and sneers when septuagenarian Carlo, married to an Alzheimer's victim, starts taking Ester, also in her seventies and a widow, for regular rides on his motorbike. Soon it is sniffed out that they even sleep together. Filial and institutional patronizing is also taken for a ride in this tragedy-tinged comedy.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
