THE ART OF CRYING has been invited to a Danish Focus during:
(Feb 15 - 25).
The chilling tyranny of domestic abuse is told with black humour and acute understanding in this unsettling debut feature. Based on the bestselling novel by Erling Jepsen, it unfolds in the early 1970s when eleven year-old Jannik Lorenzen does everything he can to keep his family together. His innocence is his best protection against a father (Jesper Asholt) who behaves more like a child as he bullies, sulks and misbehaves to always ensure that he gets what he wants, however forbidden his desires.
