When Copenhagen was the Cultural Capital of the EU in 1996, Søren Fauli was presenting the effort (or lack of) in this movie. It is a deep satire showing how artists, intellectuals, governments and others reacts when great sums of money and prestige are involved. Nepotism, corruption, sex and violence are players in this hilarious commentary on culture/art. The actors are great. Lasse Lunderskov (whom I didn't think much of as an actor before) is fantastic as the incompetent administrator of the funds. Morten Grundwald as the ass-kicking mayor, always clad in white, is wonderful. And especially Søren Pilmark (who very rarely is not fantastic) as the has-been artist Klosterstad with the greatest under-hung jaw in motion picture history, is easily worth the entire film.
This movie satires so many people that I can't mention them all. But the different artists and administrator at extremely funny. I saw this film once in 1996 on TV and went straight out and bought it on VHS. A must-see if you are in the art-world or just enjoy good satire.
