Storyline

Well-known Danish actor Nicolas Bro reigns supreme in the role of Nicolas Bro. Bro's marriage is on the rocks, his wife Lene has grown tired of their relationship, but instead of grabbing the bull by the horns, Bro decides to save his marriage by filming a love story with him and Lene playing the lead roles - as themselves. Bro's good director friend Christoffer Boe lends him a camera and suggests that he films everything - a piece of advice that Bro takes far too literally. Bro's constant filming succeeds in driving both his friends and wife nuts, and Lene ends up moving to a secret address in Berlin. Bro's plans thus die a sudden death, but obsessed by the idea of completing his film, Bro hires Danish actress Trine Dyrholm to play his wife, Lene. Alas, nothing goes according to plan and Bro's last hope of reclaiming his lost love is to seek out Lene in Berlin. It is a journey that gradually causes Bro to come apart at the seams in his increasingly desperate attempt to register his ... Written by Alphaville Pictures Copenhagen

Forget about mainstream
9 September 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Danish writer/director Christoffer Boe leaves no seat dry and no mind bored with this intense and rare movie. Not necessarily provocative, not 'art cinema', just plain and simple genius. Really a must-see for those who think they've seen everything or for those who just about had enough of mainstream (Danish) cinema. Christoffer Boe is one of indeed very few Danish directors who has a mission with his art, besides reaching a great audience. "Offscreen" will never be a box office hit but a fantastic movie to watch now and then - to those of us who find movie-making a delicate art and not JUST a mass media for entertainment. This movie is the third from the director and is indeed his most thought-provoking - with amazing acting from great Danish actor Nicolas Bro. You've never seen anything like this - - !
