Manden som ikke ville dø

Torben Skjødt Jensen, Denmark, 1999

88 min.DK/Feature

A remote part of the country, an isolated farm, a woman with an unrequited passion, and a man on the verge of insanity: Adrian Palmberg, lives to be a hundred, and the film follows him to his miraculous end. As a young man he turns against his pastor father's faith and takes up farming, but when his farm burns down and his wife and son die in the flames he takes leave of his senses, and for long periods he locks himself away in a cage. He regards himself as immortal; after all, is he not already dead? Surely the people around him are the ones who are insane, since they refuse to look death in the face.

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.
