"A Caretaker's Tale" will compete for the Kutxa-New Director's Award and will screen as part of the New Directors section which focuses on first and second works by a director. "A Caretaker's Tale" is director Katrine Wiedemann's second feature film.
Starring Lars Mikkelsen, Julie Zangenberg and Nicolaj Kopernikus, "A Caretaker's Tale" is a poetic yet disturbing and controversial story of Per, a harsh and bitter caretaker with a lowlife son who just got out of prison and two pathetic friends he bosses around. One day he discovers a young beautiful woman lying naked in an empty apartment, wrapped in a curtain.
Apparently she's up for grabs. The girl is happy and willing - almost like a gift from above. Per brings her home to his own apartment and her innocence awakens something new in him and his friends - love perhaps?
"A Caretaker's Tale" is directed by Katrine Wiedemann, written by Kim Fupz Aakeson and produced by Ib Tardini and Vinca Wiedemann for Zentropa with support from The Danish Film Institute and Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR). Domestic distribution through Nordisk Film.
