The parallel corpse

116 min.DK/Feature

Murder, murder, who's got the body? Or bodies actually. A businessman has an affair with his step-daughter, then kills her and stashes the body in a crematorium coffin about to be shoved into the furnace. But the coffin is salvaged by a crematorium workman who sells empty coffins on the sly to an undertaker. Finding two corpses in this particular coffin, the workman sniffs an opportunity for blackmail.

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.
