DANMARK / Denmark

DANMARK / Denmark

Norge and his friends live in the moment: drinking, smoking and partying. When 16-year-old Josephine tells Norge that she is pregnant, there is only a brief moment of silence. As they grow closer, the two start to develop feelings which challenge their views of life and of themselves – although "love" is not necessarily a word they would use. The camera attentively registers gestures and glances, observing what the two bodies and faces are saying or not saying to each other. With respectful proximity, Kasper Rune Larsen's debut film paints a realistic portrait of young people and the complex multiplicity of their realities. (Berlinale)

Later, he directed several films featuring a mix of skateboarding, heavy drinking and breakneck stunts. In 2010 he began a film degree, graduating with the short film “Epoch”. “Denmark” is his debut feature film.
