60 min.DK/Short fiction

The film follows 12-year-old Maja and 8-year-old Peter through a period of their lives when they experience their parents' divorce. The film describes with seriousness - but also with humour - how the divorce interferes in their lives in relation to their friends, family and themselves. Is it their fault? Is mummy foolish - because daddy says so? Elisabeth Rygård about the film: »Heart of Glass« describes a development within the children from chaos and sorrow to acceptance of the new living conditions.

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.
