Søren Kragh-Jacobsen, Denmark, 1999

102 min.DK/Feature

Kresten, newly wed, is on the threshold of a great career success in his father-in-law's company. But when the death of his own father takes him back to his poverty-stricken childhood home, far out in the country, his career plans fall apart. For one thing he has to deal with his loveable, backward brother, who is now all alone; for another, he meets a stunning woman who comes to the farm as a housekeeper, n disguise of her real profession as a call-girl.
