This Charming Man

Der er en yndig mand

Directed by Martin Strange-Hansen
Denmark, 2002
Short, Comedy


At the Employment Office, Danish Lars Hansen’s file gets mixed up with Pakistani El Hassan’s file. Lars takes the opportunity to disguise himself as El Hassan so that he can chat up language teacher Ida. A deliciously well-crafted satire about the problems of integration in Denmark.
