In my life

Bille August, Denmark, 1978

98 min.DK/Feature

Bille August emerged as a full-fledged feature film writer/director (and making his presence felt as a former cinematographer) with this intimate closeup of a welfare state married couple who cannot quite cope. Kirsten suffers from depressions. Her parents interfere too much and one day she tries to take her own life. At 25, Jens is ill-prepared for developments so complex. A love story, a tragedy.

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.
