DFI: Three films advance to Danish Oscar shortlist
By Frelle Petersen
Official Selection at the 70th San Sebastián Film Festival
'It’s a lovely, if elegantly unshowy, package, with performances which work as a true ensemble. Perhaps it’s the endless cups of coffee, the constant talk of cake, but Forever hugs the audience in for a warm familial embrace before splitting into a fractured mirror of before and after.'
- Screen Daily
When Lily loses her brother, and Egon and Maren their son, the family is thrown into a deep crisis. Now the three of them need to find their way back to life and to reconstitute the family.
FOREVER is a life-affirming family drama set in Southern Jutland, the southernmost corner of Denmark.
