When his father commits suicide, Christoffer (Festen star Ulrich Thomsen) is pressured into taking charge of the ailing family steel business. So begins a spectacular fall from grace that echoes the corruption of Michael Corleone, as Christoffer imperceptibly morphs from affable restaurateur into diamond-eyed corporate monster, tearing his family to shreds and alienating his angelic wife in the process. Danish director Per Fly's film is chillier than a nuclear winter on Dartmoor, but exceptionally performed and undeniably gripping.
