Description

From the Scandinavian director of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, here’s a very funny and authentic coming-of-age tale that manages to hit the perfect note between tragedy and comedy. In a small town where everyone knows everyone else’s business, 14-year-old Martin is getting ready for one of Denmark’s most formal transitions from boyhood to manhood: his confirmation. It is 1976, music is in the air and hormones are blossoming. But in the middle of it all, Martin’s beloved mother suddenly passes away and her tragic death triggers a series of events that not only change Martin’s life forever, but also affect everyone else in the local community. Martin seeks comfort with friend Kim and girlfriend Kristine.
