Brief Summer

Edward Fleming, Denmark, 1976

100 min.DK/Feature

During World War 2 and the German occupation of Denmark, a recently divorced woman returns to her native provincial town with her small son. She wants to start life all over. She seeks new horizons. She disdains traditional boundaries and, considering the predictable prejudices of the place, day and age, makes the mistake of falling in love with a German officer. She must suffer the consequences.

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.
