Fish out of water

Erik Clausen, Denmark, 1993

96 min.DK/Feature

Viggo, a working class family father and thorough traditionalist with petit-bourgeois of views, is thrown totally out of the whack when he is laid off the factory where he has been a skilled welder for 25 years. How he meets his mid-life crisis, which extends into the martial sphere, is the grist of Erik Clausen's comedy mill, including as always touches of genuine tragedy.

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. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
