The owner of a successful bistro in Stockholm suddenly faces a difficult life decision with consequences that threaten all he holds dear. Ulrich Thomsen, the star of Thomas Vinterberg's Dogma classic THE CELEBRATION, gives a heartbreaking performance as Christoffer, the son who must answer the towering call of family obligation. Winning six awards from the Danish film academy, THE INHERITANCE, from up and coming Danish filmmaker Per Fly, is a taut cinematic portrait of a man who stands by as he watches his own soul destroyed.

An accurate description of a controlling mother's role in making unhealthy and unloving decisions resulting in unhappiness that has ripple effects way beyond the family.

Well let's get the annoying interruptions over first. For reasons I do not understand the film would stop, pause and continue.This was the first film of Fandor I have seen so maybe the techological issues are something I have to learn more about. THE INHERITANCE was a wonderful film,well directed, great acting and hauntingly beautiful background music. The son (Ulrich Thomsen) of a powerful family has to take over his family's business when his father dies. The decision to take his father's place greatly satisfy's his widowed mother but puts his marriage in crisis. The company he inherits has to be subjected to a painful merger. How he copes with the staggering responsibilities alters the lives of many. This is a great film and if you have seen THE CELEBRATION expect the same superior qualities. The Danes have done it again. Do not miss!
