BEST NORDIC FILM NOMINEE, GÖTEBORG FILM FESTIVAL 2021
 

Set in rural Denmark, this charming comedy-drama follows a hip young Danish author as she returns to her rural family after a long absence to attend a family wedding.

When Laura, or Irina as she now calls herself arrives, it doesn’t take long for her to disagree with her conventional family on numerous topics from the benefits of being a vegan to the unfairness of the prison system. But what’s worse is she discovers that her mother wholly dotes on bride-to-be Catrine, even giving her the family wedding ring. Moreover, no one seems to remember that Catrine bullied Irina when they were children. While Catrine gallantly says that this is water under the bridge, Irina doesn’t believe her and desperately concocts subtle often funny ways to expose the real personality of the now seemingly sweet Catrine.

With beautiful scenery and quirky yet relatable characters, director Lisa Jespersen’s debut is a poignant and funny story of the strained relationships that unwittingly develop when traditions and new ideas collide.
