- How much should it cost? - Shall we say 500? - Shall we make a spray? - I'll stay and speak to to Signe.
- Can you make me five bouquets? - I can do that.
Do you have certain colors in mind? What do you think.
Then I'll take some red carnations and mix them with the white ones.
Will you deliver them? I can.
- Here's the address.
- Thank you.
I need some wax.
- Shouldn't we be casting? - No, now it's obviously wax.
You heard the lady.
Come on, sweetheart.
Now you've slept long enough on your shelf.
Renée? It just needs a thin layer.
- Here you go.
- Thank you.
Did you get them - Yes they're ready on Jan.
2 You can be in Hamburg on Dec.
29, so we can finish the second run.
An early flight, otherwise they'll all be crowded.
- We need the other moulds.
- But it's all ready.
I have them in the foundry in Copenhagen.
I'll get Gro to bring them.
Morten, remember we need them up there with the first shipment.
- There's the woman behind our success.
- Hello, Eric.
- Well, you've met each other? - I've written about her before.
Your first show as director, and then it put you on the record.
Yes, it was overwhelming.
Excuse me for a moment.
I need the old moulds.
- I'll bring them when I come.
- Fine.
So are you coming now.
- Mom, I have a reporter standing here.
- This is important.
For Hamburg.
But we can't finish without the moulds.
- Do you understand that? - Okay.
Yeah, hi My mother has an exhibition in Hamburg.
I have to go there.
Christina, won't you take that basket to the kitchen? I'm sorry.
- Can you have both? - Yes.
It's heavy.
And what's the temperature? No.
It's Christmas Eve.
I won't come.
- Dad, when are we going to grandma's? - Mother will take you there in two seconds.
I have to go to work.
The cooling system has crashed.
I've been trying to get hold of Gro.
If you just call her - Otherwise you take them.
- Drop them on the way.
- I can't reach him.
- Well, then you have to cancel.
- She's their grandmother.
- I don't want to do with it.
- You think they need to see her.
- You haven't seen her in years.
- Let go of it.
- I just don't want to go there.
Then you tell the kids.
- Will you take us to grandma's? - No.
Why take it out on us, because you fell out with her? - Then I'll take my bike.
- I can't ride so far.
That we'll have to, if you don't want us to see our own family.
You've reached Gro Grønnegaard.
Leave a message.
- Hello.
- Delivery for Grønnegaard.
Come in.
Just through in there.
You can put them.
- Here - Just over there.
You have to leave them a while, before you put them in water.
Can I ask you to get the bucket over there from the table? The white one.
- Yes.
- And then pour it in.
Come on.
It's just fine.
- Thank you.
I'll take it.
You can wash over there.
You'll have to use the other one.
That won't do.
- Would you like a glass of wine? - No thanks.
I have to drive back.
- Not a cup of freshly made tea? - A small cup.
- Could you make a cup for Signe? - Of course.
- Hi, Mom.
- Hey, Emil.
How are you? We sit and design new cabins, me and Li.
They are so beautiful.
They will be 20 feet up in the trees.
Can you stay when you come.
- I'm not staying in any tree.
- You must come and see.
- Look how beautiful it is.
- You'll get the money.
- I hope I don't have to come.
- So you don't have to.
- It will only be after Christmas.
- It's perfect.
- Do you feel good? - Merry Christmas, Emil.
He's my youngest son.
He's discrete.
He's in Thailand.
He's in the process of making some kind of a resort.
- Do you have children? - No.
But you want any? - Have you got a boyfriend? - Yes.
It was good.
- Thanks for the tea.
- Wait a minute.
Wow, that's great.
Is it me? To Signe from Veronika.
- This really is a wild place.
- I love it too.
I lived here for 40 years.
Where do you live? We live in a small house.
It's fine, but it's not like this.
The house is from the 1802 Or then it was burned down and so this was constructed here.
Do you really like it? I hope you enjoy the flowers.
Go home.
- Go home.
- Merry Christmas.
- Hi, Dad.
- Hello, Troll.
No, don't come onto the court.
- Andreas.
- I'm sweaty.
Calm down.
I packed a little for you from sponsors' Christmas party.
- So you have a little for the holidays.
- Good holiday.
Get over the trips.
Go lightly on the gravy.
- I'll see you later.
I'll just close up.
- Grab my coat.
We'll drive straight home, so do we.
See you.
- Hey, kids.
- Hello.
Good to see you.
Can you just help me? I have to get this up to grandma's.
- Frederik, are you here? - Yes.
- Where's Solveig? - She had to work.
No, no, no.
No, it doesn't work.
- Go on.
- Why don't we give it a try? - What if we just adjust it - Renée.
Take it away.
It should never be seen more.
Welcome, honey.
- And Hannah, beautiful child.
- Dad's out there.
- Is he here? Where is he? - Outside.
- Renée, the house box.
- Yes.
Hey, guys.
Why are you doing this? She's just trying.
They just need to be home at 21:00.
- Here.
- Thank you.
Renée? You will soon look like your father, when he was your age.
- He had such a huge clip.
- Merry Christmas.
- Shall we sit over here? - Yes, you can just clear it.
- Look what I found.
- Wow, where is he.
He's been sitting on the roof.
You may well get him.
- Come and get some mulled wine, Hannah.
- Mom, not too much.
Be a bit careful.
There's a little snaps in it.
So you'll stay here tonight? - Why don't you like Christmas? - Why do you think I can't do this? - Dad said.
- You have no decorations or Christmas tree.
- You can't have Christmas without a tree.
- Can't what? - Are you lovers? - No.
- Robert has a wife and children in Germany.
- Over here, Villads.
Why did you say that? - Who are you going to have kids with? - She's unfit to have the children.
Come on.
We put it in the middle.
Can the gallery manager handle it? - Up with it.
- Can it even fit here? It can't fit here.
Villads, now Thomas has to do it.
Run and fetch him.
- Hello, sausage.
- Hey, Dad.
- Shut up, man.
- Well done.
Have you seen the prospectus for the museum? It looks very good.
- Have you seen the museum, Thomas? - No.
I'll look at it later.
- You need to see it.
- I'm up to something.
What is it? An instrument with ants, plays music.
Should you help? - You can send the ants through.
- We need to eat a little bit.
Fine, you got the architect.
He's such a visionary.
This is the footbridge over to the newly built part of the museum.
All Grønnegaarden will be transformed into workshops.
We'll start next year - So you'll see it, honey.
It will be so nice.
Everything you and I do now, is actually percussion.
But there's not a real increase, like when we play the drums.
It's much more free in a way.
Every time an ant walks through the channel a sensor feels it and turns on a green light.
Every time there's a green light, someone needs to make music.
We'll take it in turns, right? And when there's a long green light, then you have to use two instruments.
This is an instrument.
And this is an instrument.
- He hasn't really understood anything.
- He'll understand it.
Have you told him, his car should be moved? - And you'll move to Italy? - That isn't all arranged yet.
You must then tell him.
- Why are you so square? I don't know where you got that from.
At least not from me.
Thomas and Villads first take.
- I don't see any move.
- Maybe they're asleep.
- What? - I'm hungry.
Well, you're hungry.
What I haven't really thought about that.
You are so beautiful, Hannah.
You're so lovely.
And you get prettier and prettier, sweetheart.
- Who wants more wine? - You don't need anything, Hannah.
- This is something I decide.
- I talked to Hannah, mother.
- And she doesn't decide itself.
- Want some more wine? She needs to have some more wine.
I talked to Emil today.
He's glorious.
- I should go and visit him.
- Hannah, you could visit him.
- In Thailand? - You could come with me.
She can then travel alone.
You don't need a chaperone.
It could be nice.
Thailand tour.
You don't have to travel so far.
One can travel in his Shut up, you'd be wise to listen tonight.
- Really wise words come forth.
- Does it bother you? Oh.
Can't you just relax? Try to relax a little.
Just a little here for the present.
Cheers, honey.
Are you ready to put it here? Just over there isn't it too short.
It's falling slightly again.
I got a good idea.
One of the houses should have a handball on the gable instead of a window.
So we need to create a handball.
You don't need it It goes all the way around.
God! I totally forgot I want to show you something.
Are you ready? Mom, you got to look.
- Can you see who this is? - It's you.
Ms Grønnegaard drew it for me.
- How did you get that? - I had to deliver some flowers.
- May I look at it? - What did she say? I helped her a little, and then she showed me around.
- It's a real artist thing.
- It's really nice.
It's really nice.
- You don't have a beer? - Yes, of course.
You should just get those I purchased.
What is this? Nothing.
- Want a beer, Mom? - No, we have to go home.
- We just got a beer.
- I need to get as many for tomorrow.
- No, I don't go now.
- Lise.
- It was nice, honey.
- You know how it is with mother.
There should be boiled and brazed herring and red cabbage.
- Take care.
- Holy shit! Fire! One more time.
Are you ready? - Can I try? - Yes, of course, do it.
- No.
I'll drive the kids home.
- I'm hungry.
- You can eat here.
- Can't you see they're enjoying themselves? You are running around in your fine art gallery and think you are so important.
In fact, you are nothing more than a secretary.
Now go back to bed.
Get out.
I can understand you love him.
But you want him again.
Even if you could, you wouldn't dare.
Don't you think she needs to loosen up a bit, Robert? - You are welcome to stay here tonight.
- Come on, Mom.
Leave off.
Just go up to bed, Mom.
I'm unhappy and lonely.
Dare you say that? Do you dare to say it out loud? I'm unhappy and lonely.
Yes, I may as well say.
I'm lonely and I'm unhappy.
What about you? Dare you say you're afraid of getting old? The only thing I'm afraid of is not keeping up with love.
- And who the hell do you love? - I've loved all my men.
I've loved and been faithful to all my ideas.
- And I've got kids, Gro.
- Yes, you've got kids.
You've got me, your little secretary.
So you've got Emil, who lives in Thailand and only calls home when he wants money from you.
And Frederik doesn't bother to set foot in this house.
And then you've got a daughter, who has no idea who you are.
Thank you.
You smell of mulled wine.
Why didn't you say something to her.
What could I say.
I'm her gallery manager.
So all your artists can just stand there and rage at you? Gro's an old lady.
She can hardly stand on her own two feet.
Sometimes I want to be completely indifferent to her and think about myself and make up my own mind.
You can practice on me.
I let myself get provoked.
I say the stupidest things.
I have to be at the airport at 06:00 You can wake her with breakfast.
I must get oysters.
We always eat them at Christmas.
Lie there still.
- Hello? - Are you Signe? - Yes.
Who's this? - Veronika.
I want to ask you to come up here.
- What time is it? - I have something for you.
I wouldn't call if it wasn't important, Signe.
But Hello? Hello, Veronika.
Are you okay? - Here you go.
- What is it? Just read it.
I don't want your house.
- Yes, yes.
It's yours.
- No, I don't want your house.
- Just understand it.
- I don't want your house.
You were born here.
John repaired the roof for me.
I gave you to Lise.
- So my mom? - She's not your mother.
Oh! What's happening Veronika? What is it? Veronika! Don't cut too many of the trees out there.
Promise me.
Veronika! Hello! I need an ambulance.
For Grønnegaarden.
Yes, it's Veronika Grønnegaard.
Veronika! I was the one who found her.
Mom, now you answer the phone.
I'm heading over to you with oysters.
- Hello? - Veronika fell down.
I called an ambulance.
What? - I'm coming over.
- Okay.
- Are you in pain? - No.
- Do you know your name? - What a dull opening comment.
- Do you remember what happened? - I need to get an exhibition ready.
Are you family? Do you want to come with us? We're losing her again.
She's Mother! - She isn't conscious.
- Get Thomas.
He lives in the back.
It's a trailer.
Just tell him to take my car.
Tell him to come now.
- Are you, Thomas? - Come in and close the door.
- Veronika's gone to hospital.
- What? What happened? - She fell down.
- I'm sorry, who are you? My name is Signe.
A woman said, you were to take her car.
Sunshine? Can't be! Sunshine! Oh, how You're - Yes.
- You need to drive.
No, the game.
I'll go.
Will you please wait here? She's stable now.
We've given her some anticoagulant.
- So she'll survive? - It appears so.
- How did she get a blood clot? - It isn't unusual with cancer.
- Does she have cancer? - No.
She was here yesterday.
She was told her breast cancer has spread.
- She doesn't have breast cancer.
- She came in with a lump in her breast.
She had a clinical investigation.
- What are you doing here? - It fell down in a storm.
- Give it to me right away.
- No.
I got it as a gift.
No! Hey, hey, hey! She smashes down the house.
My father brought it home from France.
Why does it come before your children? You'll destroy our Christmas.
I'm sorry, honey.
She won't be allowed to destroy more now.
Now we'll have a nice evening, you and me and the kids, right? If you lift your hands up, it helps.
Hey! Why is it so slow? You look lovely.
- Have you got it? - Yes.
It's because you're so small.
Try to see mom, yes not big ass but - Did you know about all this? - Not at all.
She hasn't said a word.
This is probably why she's starting to talk about Sunshine.
- Sunshine? Signe? - Yes.
- What did she say about her? - Nothing.
- She must have called her.
- Why? She was there after all.
She came with your car keys.
Was she Signe? It wasn't her then.
That's it.
Dad, don't tinker too much.
Let her alone.
I don't know shit.
I'm just looking.
Shut up man, where there's a lot.
Merry Christmas, Mom.
When I met your mother, I heard a bang.
There was such insane energy.
Dad, that was 40 years ago.
You fucked all your chorus girls.
- I wasn't so smart back then, right? - No.
- What? - You still live in a doghouse.
No? - You haven't released anything in 25 years.
- No! You're so critical.
