Synopsis:
The true story of an unlikely friendship between a radical libertarian and a hedonistic capitalist, this unconventional biopic follows two outsiders who bond despite antithetical worldviews. Simon Spies was one of Denmark’s most powerful tycoons whose enormous appetite for sex and drugs was legendary. Mogens Glistrup was a right-wing provocateur who built a political career on anti-tax activism. Director Christoffer Boe (Allegro) traces their remarkably colorful, volatile history together in this hugely entertaining story of two larger-than-life figures.
