The baron

Anders Refn, Denmark, 1978

118 min.DK/Feature

Gustav Wied (1855-1914) provided the novel on which Anders Refn's grand-style film is based: In 1890, a brutish baron takes an upperclass divorcee with a child as his bride to ensure himself of an heir. She, on her part, marries mostly to obtain security and respectability and soon drifts into an affair with her refined house-guest cousin. On finding out, the baron engages in a revenge-scheme that turns fatal.

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.
