Stepping out

Esben Høilund Carlsen, Denmark, 1981

98 min.DK/Feature

Individually divorced and disillusioned, Jens and Karen meet and are drawn towards each other, but how does one go about courtship in a natural way, let alone a tangible relationship, in a time and age of general wisdom on every bookshelf? Surrounded by marital misfits and ex-partners, Jens and Karen give love a half-chance nonetheless.

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.
