Kongens foged - sat på gaden

Phie Ambo, Denmark, 2012

40 min.DK/Documentary

The bailiff is the executioner of the financial crises, the one throwing people out on the street, without hesitation, without any softness in his heart. Or how? The film follows the bailiff Else, and we become wiser, not only in regards to the actual job of a bailiff and how forced evictions take place, but also on what kind of woman this is: a woman with an interest in her 'victims' and who may be a very authorative person, but not neccesarily harsh.
