The Commune



Drama | 2016 | 112 minutes |




Erik and Anna are a couple of academics with a dream. With their daughter Freja, they set up a commune in Erik's huge villa in an upmarket district of Copenhagen. With the family at the centre of the story, we are invited into their dream of a real commune. We participate in the house meetings, the dinners and parties. There is friendship, love and togetherness under one roof, until an earth-shattering love affair puts the small community to its greatest test. The film is a humorous and delicate; but also painful and touching portrait of an entire generation, a gentle yet confrontational declaration of love for a group of idealists and dreamers, who have long since awakened to reality.
