Norway lives a slacker life in a Danish small town. The days are filled with beers, marijuana and endless talk about distant future dreams. When suddenly 16-year-old Josephine shows up and tells that she is pregnant with Norge’s child, reality strikes back and Norway is resurrected from his dreamy life. Feature debuting Kasper Rune Larsen follow with handheld camera, attentive and with respect Norge’s and Josephine’s faces and bodies, eyes and movements, creating an intimacy and long-lasting empathy. Denmark is a tender, realistic and staggeringly beautiful depiction of young love and its consequences, filled with silences that speak as much as words.
