Closing time

Claus Ploug, Denmark, 1988

91 min.DK/Feature

Thrown together by fate, two men of different social backgrounds experience a measure of fellow-feeling in this tightly cast melodrama. Debt-ridden and after a fight with his wife, one of the men wanders aimlessly around, steals a taxi, gives the other man a lift, a man more affluent than himself and who also has problems with the opposite sex. A chance encounter with an unknown woman provides new challenges.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
