That Time of Year

Paprika Steen, Denmark, 2018

105 min.DK/FeatureComedy

This year at Katrine and Mads' house the family will once again be united for Christmas Eve, and on a traditional holiday like this, there has to be room for everyone: the divorced parents, the youngest sister and her new husband and not least the teenage daughter of the family, struggling to get her mother's attention. Underneath the surface, the explosion lurks as flammable as dry spruce and when the truth starts to appear, the illusion of holiday peace we so deeply insist on shatters.
