Through the adults surrounding him, eight year-old Frederik is confronted with animalistic desires, abandonment, death, hatred, and envy. His parents hold little love for each other, and his mother starts an affair with Frederik's teacher. When Frederik's father is killed, the little boy opts to shut out the world, and deal only through his alter ego, The Beast Within, who perceives everything through a haze of despair.Written by
Because this is a film for adults with a child as the main character, it has never really got the attention it ought. But actually it´s a very subtle and touching Danish film about a child´s loss of innocence. It was the first film of Carsten Rudolf and won the two main Danish film awards, the Bodilprize and the Robertprize for best film.
