Break your bounds

Erik Clausen, Denmark, 2000

98 min.DK/Feature

Bent lives in a working class district once celebrated for its solidarity but now divided and self-centred. When he falls for a solo mother, Vibeke, he thinks there's a chance of a fresh start; Vibeke, who looks like a Madonna, is beset by problems that fill her with distrust and make it difficult for her to commit herself to anyone. There is also the age gap of twenty years between them, and in her eyes Bent is an old-fashioned oddball. But the former boxer is also a man who knows how to retaliate when life tries to knock him down. "Break Your Bounds!" was what his father used to say, advice that Bent is adept at following.

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. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
