Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Racism in the '90s is the underlying theme of this Danish drama. Daniel used to be a highly rated radical TV journalist known for his revolutionary tendencies. Now he is middle-aged, retired and living in his hometown where he has assumed ownership of a photography business. There he begins an affair with lovely Maria, an actress more than half his age. Maria is to play a nude scene with an Arab actor in a new production of Miss Julie. On the night Daniel attends, both actors are tarred and feathered (literally) by local racists.
