Danish Film Night Returns
When: Sunday 13th April 2014, 16:00 onwards
Where: The Spotted Dog, 104 Warwick Street, Digbeth, B12 0NH
Danish Film Night returns to The Spotted Dog on Sunday with a double billing and free cake!
Both films are written by Oscar-winner Anders Thomas Jensen, but don’t let that put you off – he does funny, and he does it well. The first film will be screened at 16:15 sharp, so if you fancy a lazy Sunday afternoon, make sure to get down in time to grab some of that aforementioned cake and find yourself a nice comfy seat.
I Kina Spiser De Hunde (In China They Eat Dogs)
Arvid, a cashier, is (according to his girlfriend, Hanne) the most boring man in the world. That is until he – pretty much by accident – manages to stop an armed robbery at the bank. He returns home with flowers and plans for a romantic trip to Paris, to discover she’s left him and has taken most of their belongings with her. As if that isn’t bad enough, the bank robber’s angry girlfriend shows up, saying they really needed that money. In an attempt to right his wrong, Arvid seeks out his criminal older brother, Harald, to help.
Gamle Mænd I Nye Biler (Old Men In New Cars)
The last wish of the dying ‘Monk’ is for his foster child, Harald, to reunite him with his real son, Ludvig. Unfortunately, the latter is currently spending the better part of his days in a Swedish high security prison cell. Harald enlists the help of chefs Peter and Martin (more enthused about making the perfect Danish Pastry than getting their hands dirty) so father and son can meet for the first time in their lives.
