A Family

This domestic drama from Danish director Pernille Fischer Christensen is as disappointingly generic as its title, albeit with a pair of classy central performances. Lene Maria Christensen plays Copenhagen gallery curator Ditte who’s offered a job in New York on the same day that she finds out she’s pregnant. The news that her beloved father Rikard (Jesper Christensen) has inoperable cancer only complicates Ditte’s decisions about her future. This father-daughter relationship, with all its joys and difficulties, is explored in an intense and emotional way, so much so that all the other characters – Ditte’s boyfriend, Rikard’s wife and three other children – are too sketchily drawn.
