The Man

Simon is the eccentric artist par excellence. Charismatic, but a bit of an odd duck. He emerges from his exclusive Copenhagen studio in a series of highly original “stylizations”. He can pick and choose his assistants. He deals with his mid-life crisis by getting involved with much younger women. He’s a full-fledged celebrity. But the status quo is disturbed when Casper, the grown-up son he’s had no contact with for years, shows up. Casper has followed in his father’s footsteps, and what’s more—he’s genuinely talented. The huge graffiti piece outside the window of the studio proves it. What would be a point of pride for most parents becomes a reason for suspiciousness and even jealousy for Simon. He starts wondering about Casper’s real intentions for suddenly turning up in his life. Charlotte Sieling skillfully balances a classic story about a difficult father-son relationship and a humorous reflection on the modern art world. The Danish director cleverly illustrates how great art demands great sacrifice.
