Storyline

Finn, a stone cutter, lacks meaning and passion in his lonely life. Then one day he sees a tuba in a shop window and falls in love with it. He buys the tuba and starts practising energetically, but nobody wants to listen to his tentative efforts. Finn has almost given up playing, when accidentally and with the help of his music, he stops a woman from taking her own life. Finn's life becomes meaningful and for the first time someone wants to listen to him play. But things aren't that simple, not even when you have found the passion of your life.

A film of many qualities
13 December 2003 | by pbnSee all my reviews

"Manden med tubaen" is a fine Danish short film carried by quality in several important fields of film-making. The lead actor, the talented Søren Sætter-Lassen, is wonderful as the struggling man who finds a glimpse of passion in a tuba and in a woman who he can help because she is even more sad than he is. Especially remarkable is the cinematography by award-winner Anthony Dod Mantle and the sceneries and locations he is given to work with. The light and the colours give a refreshing stylistic touch to the film.

The director keeps the to some extent tragic tale interesting by not ignoring the moments of humour and warmth in the story. It's a film of important changes in a man's life, and while the brevity of the film perhaps excludes it from exploring all aspects, it certainly represents a good use of a form and a subject and is interesting and appealing to watch.
