Den sidste rejse

Lasse Spang Olsen, Denmark, 2011

100 min.DK/Feature

»Den Sidste Rejse« is a film about friendship and everything that implies. The film is based on Jacob Haugaard and Finn Nørbygård and their professional collaboration and lifelong friendship - which turns out to be a bit different than what most people think. Jacob and Finn is not the inseparable duo of Jutland everyone seems to think they are. Finn is a selfish and money-fixated man, and Jacob has become thoroughly tired of both him, their friendship as well as their cooperation. So when Finn takes yet another risk with a shady investment, which capsizes Jacob's economy, Jacob has had it. He breaks off with Finn, who is left alone. It then dawns on Finn that what he thought was a productive, economic cooperation was in fact an invaluable friendship. But Jacob is gone and Finn have to try to fend for himself. Only by accident do they team up again at a funeral home in the south of Sweden. Jacob has started a new and well-functioning life that turns out to hold quite a few surprises. Slowly but surely they build up a new friendship - or so it seems. For their new friendship is not quite what it purports. Not at all.
