Vejen hjem

Vibeke Juel, Denmark, 1998

38 min.DK/Documentary

While revisiting his childhood home, Ivar sees his bedroom and recalls, among other things, the day he decided that his father would never see him cry again. Two 30-year-old men, Jens and Ivar, look back at their childhood and their normal Danish upbringing in nuclear families with a father, mother and siblings. Both were spanked by their fathers. It was not a question of extreme violence or physical abuse, but rather a spanking on Dad's knee, not to mention that constant threat that when things came to a head, a spanking was the solution.
