Storyline

A modern fable about an invisible man who gets the chance to become a real human being. He has to learn to be brave, honest and conscientious. 'P' is a fantasy figure, living behind the wallpaper in seven year-old Lisa's bedroom. Due to the destruction of the building in which Lisa lives, P leaves Lisa and her fantasy world. He ends up at a refugee center, where he learns Danish and becomes an integrated member of society. An apartment is assigned to P and he gets a job in a shoe store. P's naiveté and good will makes him an easy prey. Without being guilty, he becomes under suspicion of being a wanted child molester. This is the story of P's dramatic journey through the Fall of Man in an attempt to become a good citizen. Written by Anonymous

A magical tribute
23 November 2003 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

There are a few movies today that make you think about society when you leave the darkness of the cinema. Et Rigtigt Menneske does. Åke Sandgren has created a magic story that entertains, puzzles and stays in your mind for a long time. It's a beauty.
