THE SAINT BERNARD SYNDICATE, Mads Brugger
Denmark / 2018 / 98 min / English subtitles / Dark Comedy
Local mattress salesman, Rasmus has just been diagnosed with A.L.S. The prognosis is grim as he will gradually will lose control of his muscles and die.
Not exactly the stuff of comedies.
However, Rasmus has just been contacted by a former school chum, Fredrick, who is inviting Rasmus to join him on the ground floor of a new business endeavor. He proposes to market St Bernards to the Chinese as a luxury – status item, with Rasmus as the lead investor. This venture will bring in millions of dollars and allow Rasmus the ability to live out his remaining years in comfort.
One of the cleverest films of the year. The odd couple duo are polar opposites and deliver straightforward, over the top, under the radar brilliant performances. If that seems a bit contradictory, sorry but you have to see the film. Rasmus Bruun portrays Rasmus and won Best Actor in a Foreign Film at Tribeca this year.
