Synopsis: Most people would see it as a bonus to be sent a few days to the Côte d'Azur to solve a smaller routine case, but for the righteous, extremely self-controlled and dull lawyer Michael Helge it is more like a punishment. Sun, sand, and sea are not things that appear on his top ten list. The case is supposedly just a simple divorce, but as soon as Michael Helge sets feet on French soil, everything goes wrong. He gets hustled for 10 million kroner of the company's money, and suddenly the future looks less bright. Fortunately, he meets his old friend, the frivolous gambler Theo, and together they plan how to get all the money back in a true James Bond style...

7 DAYS EARLIER

- Yes?

- Your clients are here.

I'll be right out.

Michael Helge here is

our finest tax attorney.

You won't find anyone better than him.

Well, you will, but they're in jail.

As I said, our research back to 2004

clearly indicates -

- that your fund is transparent, and so

only its earnings are subject to tax.

I don't quite follow.

It means

we just earned you a bundle.

With retrospective application

minus our fee of

That'll do for now.

Let's wrap this up, shall we?

- Maybe someone's already told you.

- Yes?

You've put on too little.

What?

Think hard,

and I'm sure you know what I mean.

You mean

Yes, you're understamped.

According to the new postal rates -

- a letter of that size and weight

requires a DKK 25 stamp.

Have a nice day.

Michael Helge, come in.

Whisky?

Water, please. I'm working.

Sure.

- You're going to the South of France.

- What have I done?

What do you mean?

Nothing at all.

It's a divorce case.

I don't know them.

They had their villa appraised at

DKK 20 million, the wife wants half

It's all in the file.

- Consider it a bonus holiday.

- Holiday? I can't.

You need to loosen up. You don't even

take off your tie in your spare time.

What spare time?

Go to the South of France

and get these two signatures -

- and try to loosen up down there.

When you return, we'll have a

reception where I make you a partner.

Let's kill two birds with one stone.

Get the last thing settled.

Propose to Lydia.

- It would be a smart move

- Very smart.

Because that would make it

tax-deductible.

Michael Helge

- Let's not tell Lydia.

- I can't keep anything from Lydia.

It's an order.

Will do.

Lydia, toots?

We agreed that pet names were a

degrading term for your friend/partner.

- It's disrespectful.

- Sure, pumpkin Lydia.

Did Dad say that reception had other

agendas than you becoming a partner?

No, he didn't.

No.

- I bet it's steaming hot in France.

- So buy a pair of shorts.

No shorts. I'm a grown man.

Sun and sand makes

my mood drop to 15%.

I bet it can rise to 25%

like when we were in Wales.

I hate the French. Five European

countries still practice the siesta.

They all have poor economies,

and France is one of those countries.

Do as Dad says. Go settle that

divorce, relax and come back home.

France Sh*t.

I'm a princess.

- Why can't kids grow up?

- Please put your bag on the band.

Passport, please.

- Hello? Hey there!

- Unbelievable!

Melge? Melge!

It's me, Theo the Man.

Let's shake, let's shake.

Let's shake Herlufsholm style.

Remember?

Hell!

F***, you're fat.

What's all this?

The girls gotta see this.

Hey, girls.

This is my old buddy.

We went to

Herlufsholm Boarding School.

We were roomies.

It's been 20 years. Man!

- I bet you do something awesome.

- I'm an attorney.

- A tax attorney.

- Seriously?

Congratulations, my good man.

How's the p*ssy factor?

- What?

- P-u-s-s-y. Does it get you any?

- Wanna go to a party?

- No.

Why not?

Let's reminisce about old times.

I'm here on business, and I don't have

time to meet and reminisce.

Please excuse me.

I'm waiting for my bag.

Melge.

Let's get outta here.

Do you guys know Basshunter?

He's cool.

"I know a boat. It's called Anna ..."

Can I help you?

I've had it!

- Winther Schmidt Host and Partners.

- Ouest.

Ouest.

I'll check.

French clown.

Any luggage?

Hello, Madame.

Hello, Monsieur.

Oh no.

Sorry, but I couldn't help overhearing.

You're Danish, and in trouble?

- I'm Marianne.

- Michael Helge Hansen.

- My wallet has been stolen.

- How awful. You feel almost naked.
