Synopsis

This film is a story of five daughters. Each of them presents a portrait of her father. A father who has to work night shift; a father who buys his daughter a bass guitar and with whom she can talk about music all night; a father who became a correctional officer, giving up his dream of going out to sea; an astronaut father who sent his daugher a birthday message from space; and a father who watch over his daughter from heaven, like a guardian angel. Five daughters, from ages 5 to 78, tell us stories of their fathers in their own calm words. Animated marker-drawings make this film feel more familiar, and the time-based arrangement of the stories gives us the feeling that we’re watching the growth of one woman. A heart-warming film with a veil of nostalgia laid upon it. (KIM Jin-sook)

Review

Director

  • Nadia Josefine EL SAID

    Nadia Josefine El Said was born in 1977 and grew up in the southern suburbs of Copenhagen. She spent most of her childhood daydreaming, or with her head buried in books and comics. At some point she decided to put the books aside and started drawing. In 2002 she graduated as Director of Animation from The National Danish Film School. In her films she mixes live-action, graphics, fiction and documentary. Curiosity of the world, personal relationships and identity are basic themes in her work. Besides film, she works with art, sound and textbased projects. Beach (2002)​
