Home Sweet Home

Lars Mikkelsen, Denmark, 2014

31 min.DK/Short fiction

Erik rules his wife and kids like a tyrant king. One day his teenage son, Lasse, is pushed too far and he puts Erik in the hospital for two weeks. In the meantime, the father's absence transforms daily life around the house, allowing the other members of the family to breathe more freely. Lasse gets involved with Daniella, a girl from his school, whom he was previously banned from seeing. Lone, the mother of the family, allows herself to take Erik's fancy car out for a spin. Everything comes to a head at a dramatic dinner party with Erik's parents, as we are shown just how violence runs in the family.
