Director: Dagur Kari
Daniel (Jakob Cedergren) is a charming slacker, trying to make ends meet through graffiti. When he's not scrawling the names of young women on blank walls for their erstwhile lovers, or tagging for his own pleasure, he's tooling around the streets of Copenhagen in his Fiat 500. In the true spirit of the rogue, he's unperturbed by the fact that parking attendants, police, creditors and his landlord are all trying to nail him. When one day Daniel meets Franc (Tilly Scott Pedersen) he is enamoured with this girl from the local bakery, who turns out to be equally as irresponsible and beguiling as he. But when Daniel's life heads towards crisis, he must make a giant leap of faith to survive. [Dark Horse] is the offbeat new drama by Dagur Kari, whose Noi Albinoi won the hearts of festival-goers during MIFF 03. Kari's humorous and laidback, yet poignant, [Dark Horse] uncovers the emotional lives of a group of characters that fails to fit the die. It screened in Un Certain Regard at Cannes, 2005.
