Storyline

World famous singer-songwriter Thomas Jacob is based in Los Angeles. He is a very successful man who has burned a lot of bridges. He lives and breathes music and very little else. When Thomas travels back to Denmark to record a new album with his regular producer, Molly Moe, his grown-up daughter, Julie, shows up with his 11 year-old grandson, Noa, whom Thomas has never met. Soon - and much against his will - Thomas is forced to take care of Noa. Against all odds the two of them slowly begin to connect through music. Then disaster strikes forcing Thomas to realize, that he now has to make a choice that will change his life forever. Written by Sisse Graum Jørgensen

Trivia

It is Mikael Persbrandt himself singing the songs presented on the soundtrack. Which were later on released on the album Someone You Love. Music was written by Danish Sing and songwriter Tina Dico. In my opinion Mikael Persbrandt resembles the sound of the Danish Band Sort Sol's front singer Steen Jørgensen with a touch of a young Leonard Cohen .

Her name is Tina Dikow. Not only the sound but also the look of Persbrandt resembles Sort Sol-singer Steen Jørgensen. See more »

What a palaver
1 May 2021 | by micke-bystromSee all my reviews

If you can buy that the character played by Persbrandt is " a world-famous artist", then maybe you could find this meaningful. I couldn't. Cutting out the music performances would have helped the story considerably. Maybe with other casting and another director it could have worked.

The premises are presented in a very boring way too and the acting is as if everyone are playing themselves. Totally uninteresting. I don't usually abort early on in a movie, but this one is a sleeper.
