Dreams Don't Make Noise When They Die

Christian Braad Thomsen, Denmark, 1979

80 min.DK/Feature

With his wife in tow, a young anti-violence activist-politician visits his dying father and finds that he has a score to settle with his own past and present. In being unforgiving towards the old tyrant, is he a bit of a tyrant himself? When an old schoolmate rapes his wife, his own reaction is one of outright violence. The old man on his death-bed sees old quarrels magnified, but it's all too late.

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.
