Franz Ernst, Denmark, 1976

94 min.DK/Feature

Christian and Mikael are brothers working for the same company. Michael is the charming extrovert who does not mind a little shady action on the side. Christian is a Moral Majority man, but when he fails his brother in a tight spot, he also indirectly causes his death. Now off his high horse, guilt-ridden Christian is soon submerged in moral double dealing that leads to violence and crime.

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.
