Sex, Drugs & Taxation

Maybe the best thing to come out of Scandinavia during the hippie years was, in fact, the story of a radical libertarian and a hedonist capitalist. Their friendship, forged by being outsiders in a conformist country, took them through years of adulation and success, with slight detours into the welcoming arms of vilification and imprisonment. A joyride through taxation, mass travel, hookers and politics. Not feeling too constrained by historical facts, director Christoffer Boe's story of Simon Spies and Mogens Glistrup covers just a few of their decades in a tale of warmth and humour, defiance and eccentricity.

Director Christoffer Boe received the Caméra d’Or in Cannes in 2003 and won the Young Cinema Award in Venice in 2006. His fourth feature Everything Will Be Fine (2010) was selected for Quinzaine des Réalisateurs.
