to insanity.

A condition that no longer

affects him, however.

On these grounds,

my client pleads not guilty.

Mom, it's Dad.


Hi Dad.

Hi, hi.


Hi, Dad.

My, what a scare.

Thank God it's over now.

It's over?

Yes. It's over now.

They're going to give me some medicine

and discharge me tomorrow


You can go back to the hotel.

That's great!


Jesus Christ!

How can it have gone on for so long?


How hard can it be to put

two and two together?

It's not.

What's going on?

The school is bankrupt.

It's all over. Happy now?


Frederik doesn't bring home 12 million

kroner without you benefiting from it.

12 million?

12 million. Yes.

He has had the school guarantee loans

for at least 12 million.

But he can't do that.

If anyone can, he sure as hell can!

But he's ill.

This dates back more than a year.

But it can't be him.

It must be someone else, Laust.

It's a misunderstanding.

No, it isn't, and you damn well know.

This condition you were in,

please try to describe it.

I wasn't aware it was a condition.

Were you as conscious of your actions

as you are rig ht now?

I remember everything from the period.

You do?


But you saw nothing wrong in investing

the school's money without their consent?

I didn't think I was doing anything

wrong. I think...

It's a big decision that you

should have discussed...

I think I thought I'd keep it a secret

in order to surprise Laust.

You wanted to surprise him?

Yes, and make him happy.


To make him...

When you... I just want to get this right.

When you did the transfer, which you now

know was wrong, but didn't then,

what was your motivation?

I seems strange to me as well.

I understand why you...

I can't...

I think the excitement was to see

if I would succeed.

Peter Schønau Fog

Peter Schønau Fog (born 20 April 1971) is a Danish film director. Fog's debut feature film, Kunsten at græde i kor (English: The Art of Crying), based on Erling Jepsen's novel of the same name, premiered 27 April 2007 and received critical acclaim. For the film, he received the Nordic Council Film Prize for Best Film of 2007 as well as the 2007 Robert Award for Best Danish Film and 2008 Bodil Award for Best Danish Film. Fog studied at the University of Copenhagen and the Prague Film School before graduating in 1999 from the National Film School of Denmark. His graduation project, the short film Lille Mænsk (English: Little Man) was shortlisted for Best Foreign Film at the Student Academy Awards. In 2010, Fog accepted a four-year contract as consultant and project director at the Danish Film Institute which prevented him from pursuing personal film projects. It was announced in September 2015 that Fog had written a screenplay based on Christian Jungersen's bestselling novel Du forsvinder (You Disappear) and he would direct the film to be released in February 2017. more…
