The Man

Denmark 2017

In Danish and Norwegian with English subtitles

94 min

For audiences aged 12 and above

Nasty father-son relations are set off against the high-stakes art world in "The Man," an ultra-slick, very Danish take on inter-generational rivalry and the treacherous battle to always remain on top. Entitled superstar artists usually capture the literate public's imagination, especially when they misbehave, and there's a certain amount of exaggerated fun in the way the lead character is conceived - something like a cross between Julian Schnabel and Jeff Koons. Director/scripter Charlotte Sieling returns to features after notable success on TV with Scandi series including "The Killing" and "The Bridge," plus U.S. shows like "Homeland," and while there's a playful perversity in this, her second film, its attractions generate only passing diversions.
