Simon is the king of the Danish art scene - eccentric, successful, wealthy, with a beautiful wife and a young mistress. Life is beautiful, until the day his unknown son Casper turns up and attracts all the attention. It turns out that Casper is the world-famous graffiti artist "The Ghost". This is a provocation and a challenge to Simon, and the relationship between father and son is put to a serious test. However, against all odds he two slowly grow closer to each other, but the question is whether blood ties are enough? Because after all Simon has no plans of being a father, and Casper has other plans with his father than simply getting to know him.
The Art of Annulment
Sometimes it is easier to destroy a common father (say, most of us) than to a parent with a super-ego. In the case of Mesteren/The Man; the destruction is total. The Son hidden behind his face of good boy and without great effort, destroys the father figure in a great revenge. Not only appropriates the wife, and the lover, but also nullifies the father artistically with his own tools getting even his father's team to collaborate in his graffiti works. Let's say, the son not only defeats his father artistically but also in his same emotional field, something (by the way) that many parents suffer at some point of the life; maybe not with so much intensity but this concept of father's destruction is an universal truth. The best thing is the final and incomprehensible reaction of his father in the acceptance of all the facts. This is a movie that makes you think especially if you are a father.
