Fantasy and reality fuse together to create exciting new narrative shapes in the second feature from Danish director Christoffer Boe. Zetterstrom, a famous concert pianist, returns to his native Copenhagen for the first time in years to give a performance. His quest for perfection has led him to neglect his personal life, a character trait symbolised in his life by a prematurely sundered love affair (with Helena Christensen) that he no longer remembers. However, once Zetterstrom is back in Copenhagen, the film begins to hum with fantastical energy, leading both the protagonist and the viewer into unexpected places. Heartfelt and beautifully realised, Allegro is a real one-off that's literally in a world of its own.
There will be an introduction and Q & A with director Christoffer Boe at the 20.45 screening on Friday 15 September.
