Brazil - Denmark Co-Production
Written and Directed by André Costa
During a cold winter night in Copenhagen, a private detective uses the arguments of Shakespeare's Hamlet to confront the Jante Law Culture (the Scandinavian code of conduct which praises equality and sameness) and thus alleviate his midlife crisis. In the meantime, five other characters (his ex-fiancée, his business partner, his Jewish mother, a wannabe witch, and a prostitute) challenge his innate social unfitness. As the night goes on, mystery, romance and betrayal all intertwine as the five characters inhabit both the protagonist's mental and physical world, making it increasingly difficult to separate the being from the seeming.
