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 . See more »

Persbrandt is this films only asset....
21 February 2017 | by EskeRahnSee all my reviews

Once again, a film carried home by Persbrandt.

He just gets better with age.

A rather banal story with plenty of pathos survives on his strength.

It is quite Brando-ish you FEEL him.

The rest -unfortunately- is just rather ignorable predictably hogwash...
