SCA16 Comeback

18+ 85 MIN

Synopsis

Anders W. Berthelsen delivers a terrific performance in this comic tale of redemption and the complexities of the father-daughter relationship by celebrated director, Natasha Arthy (The Fighter, 2007, The Killing, 2012).

Once celebrated stand-up comedian Thomas (Berthelsen) has derailed his career following a number of hedonistic decisions. Desperate to do anything to return to his former glory, he reluctantly agrees to open as the support act for his successful comic friend, Mads Andersen – affording him an opportunity to showcase his dubious new repertoire. However, when his estranged teenage daughter Frederikke, played by television’s The Bridge star Sarah-Sophie Boussnina, appears out of the blue, Thomas' questionable plan is suddenly turned upside down. Frederikke applies any means necessary to sabotage her father’s chances of success and before Thomas realises what has hit him, his comeback begins to hurtle with great accuracy toward the comic-abyss. In an ironic twist, it is left to Frederikke to save him - but is it too late for a daughter to find the forgiveness within? One thing is certain; it will not be the comeback Thomas envisioned
