An idyllic and harmonious comune is disrupted and tested by an earth-shattering love affair
“The Danish keep on killing it at finding new angles in family dramas. In The Commune, we see a marriage fall apart as they try to assimilate the new limits of personal freedom during the swinging 70s.” - The Canadian Crew
“Glorious.” – Dennis Dermody, Paper Magazine
“Infectious, Vinterberg captures family dysfunction like no other” - Film Comment
Erik and Anna are a professional couple with a dream. Along with their daughter Freja, they set up a commune in Erik’s huge villa in the upmarket district of Copenhagen. With the family in the center of the story, we are invited into the dream of a real commune; we participate in the house meetings, dinners and parties. It is friendship, love and togetherness under one roof until an earth-shattering love affair puts the community and the commune to its greatest test.
