“Du forsvinder” – Peter Schønau Fog’s drama “You Disappear” – has been chosen to represent Denmark in the Foreign Language Oscar category. The movie was presented and chosen for the catogory at the Toronto Film Festival,
Based on Christian Jungersen’s bestselling novel and penned by Fog, “You Disappear” centers on a woman who is married to a successful headmaster suffering from a brain tumor. The film is a “story about the challenges we face as neuroscience forces us to rethink what we are as human beings,” said TrustNordisk.
“You Disappear” was selected over Henrik Ruben Genz’ “Word of God” and Fenar Ahmad’s “Darkland.”
“You Disappear” was well received at Toronto. Several reviews pointed out the strong performances of Trine Dyrholm and Nikolaj Lie Kaas as the two lead actors. Mikkel Boe Følsgaard and the late Michael Nyqvist complete the cast.
