Life doesn’t seem particularly rosy for harsh and bitter misogynist apartment caretaker and handyman Per. His wife left him. Their son is a junkie. Most nights end over beers with whiny, parasitical neighbor Viborg – until fate throws the girl, like some fallen angel, his way. She doesn’t know how to talk, walk, or even eat – she just smiles broadly. Per soon discovers that she has miraculous sexual powers. Perhaps just as startling, he finds himself caring deeply for this beautiful cypher in a perverse, unexpected fairy tale about love, possession, and generosity. Acclaimed theatre director Katrine Wiedemann avoids any moralizing about the story’s unusual premise. Be advised: this provocative film contains explicit sexual scenes that some may find disturbing.
