DIRECTOR: Pernille Fischer Christensen - DENMARK

Rikard Rheinwald is the last in a line of five generations of prosperous Copenhagen bakers (“purveyors to the Royal Court!”). Diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer, the proud man decides that his daughter Ditte should take over the family business. But Ditte has her hands full with her successful art gallery, a dream job offer in New York, and difficulties with her boyfriend. The conflicting demands of family and tradition, an aging father and a determined daughter, are given powerful dramatic treatment in a film that deftly explores the universal with no pat answers, just resonating recognition and understanding. (102 mins.)

Selected Filmography: En Soap (06), Dancers (08).

FIPRESCI Critics Prize, Berlin Film Festival and Best Feature Film, Los Angeles Film Festival.

Sponsored by Blue Heron Paper.

Interests: Narrative Feature.
