| Singer comes home to town he left behind.
The famous singer Karl Kristian comes back to his hometown village, and that causes the town to be turned upside down when surprises are revealed by the woman he abandoned here, years ago. Thomas BoLarsen, who plays the singer, has appeared in many Danish TV shows and films. This story is centered around the singer and Sebastian, played by Oliver Møller Knauer, but this seems to be the only role Knauer has played.

For the first third of the film, Sebastian, who stutters when he gets nervous, is wearing a shiny white shirt, with a shiny face and perfect hair... then things get turned upside down. Pretty good story. No big surprises, but no plot holes or quality issues. Shown now & then on the sundance channel with subtitles.

Director Thomas Vinterberg, puts some offbeat themes into his movies, some of which are available on DVD here in the US. His 1998 film "The Celebration" won numerous awards at film festivals all around the world. Vinterberg films using specific guidelines that dictate how and where scenes can be filmed, kind of a minimalist, "honesty in lighting" set of rules.
