Helene's search for her unknown father leads her to a small ailing Copenhagen theater. Helped by her mother's dog, Helene has always stood in the shadow of, she succeeds to get close to the theater director and the rest of the hard-pressed personal gallery. It is a surprising journey where everything is turned upside down, and where Helene doesn't necessarily find what she wanted, but something else - and much bigger.

A bit absurd but quite funny
5 January 2020 | by nellemann-20145See all my reviews

The main caracter is a young women who's dog gets a role in a theater production. Most of the film takes place in the small independent theater in financial and artistic distress. The film is based on a novel by danish playwright and novelist Erling Jepsen and contains a not very flattering selfportrait. A bit like a Woody Allan movie.
