Films In Daejeon:Sprængfarlig Bombe [Denmark ]

Tonny (Ulrich Thomsen) has a severe anger problem, having just spent time in jail for knocking a man unconscious. His wife, Tanja (Ellen Hillingso), has divorced him, and his lawyer has to persuade her to let him see his children a few hours every month. On their first outing, Tonny takes his kids to see the new "Harry Potter" film. When they can't get any tickets, they instead watch a pretentious Danish film, "The Murderer," where they're the only ones in the cinema. In the foyer afterward, Tonny gets angry and smashes a window. He manages to avoid prison time and decides to seek out the film's director to get back the money they spent on tickets, popcorn and soft drinks. Helmer is Claus Volter (Nikolaj Lie Kaas), who says things like, "I make films for myself, not for the audience." When he receives a devastating review in the New York Times, he comments, "I don't consider it a serious paper; after all, it's American." Tonny visits Volter on the set of his new film, "The Artist," where he's mistaken for an extra and has a serious accident. Told that he can now sue Volter for millions, Tonny instead demands to become the pic's co-scripter and co-director. Furious, Volter has to agree. [Variety.com]
