That Time of Year
A bit of booze uncorks the resentment, self-consciousness and long-simmering anger that is just below the surface of this Christmas family gathering.
This year at Katrine and Mads’ house the family will once again be united around Christmas Eve and on a traditional holiday like this, there has to be room for everyone; the divorced parents, the youngest sister and her new husband and not least the teenage daughter of the family, struggling to get her mother’s attention. Underneath the surface the explosion lurks as flammable as a dry spruce and when truths start to appear, the illusion of holiday peace shatters.
Directed, co-written and starring Danish national treasure Paprika Steen.
