Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Swedish filmmaker Bjorn Runge writes and directs Om Jag Vander Mig Om (Day Break), a drama concerning three different parallel story lines that take place in one day. Rickard (Jakob Eklund) is a surgeon who is cheating on his faithful wife Agnes (Pernilla August). He finds out that he didn't get the promotion he wanted and his mistress (Marie Richardson) is pregnant. Another story line involves divorced Anita (Ann Petren), her ex-husband Olof (Peter Andersson), and his young girlfriend Petra (Sanna Krepper). The final story concerns an elderly couple who hire hard-working building tradesman Anders (Magnus Krepper) for an unusual home-improvement request. Day Break won a Silver Bear award at the Berlin Film Festival in 2004.
