Cross My Heart

Henning Carlsen, Denmark, 1982

94 min.DK/Feature

Claus Worm, an affluent architect finds his private life crumbling, his business on a downward curve and, finally, his health failing. Worm also finds himself coerced into working for dirty money in a deal that may involve murder. Is it all true or is it paranoia? It is writer-director Henning Carlsen's conceit that audiences be left to fully share the protagonist's deadly doubts.

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.
