Bakerman

Never corner a baker… Jens (Mikkel Vadsholdt) has accepted far too much for too long. Being the shy night-owl he is, he keeps to himself, but the world will not let him be. The new master baker’s quality starts slackening, and when a bunch of yobs one day smash the window of Jens’s car, he takes one of them out. Intoxicated by his own new unexpressed vigour, Jens comes out of his shell, but the destructive driving force leads him towards a free fall.

A film that is as shocking with its vigilante story as it is captivating with its determination. Headed by the always solid Mikkel Vadsholdt (The Sunfish), who here manages to arouse our empathy in a role of a reserved man who has difficulty coping with the light of day. We are super delighted to present the national premiere of David Noel Bourkes Bakerman. The film had its premiere at CPH :P IX in 2016 and has attended several other festivals in the past year.
