Synopsis
A man, Ravn, who heads a company has never revealed his identity. Instead, he gets the easy way out by simply blaming things on "The Boss Of It All". About to sell his company, he now needs someone to represent and pretend to be him. So, he hires a thespian, Kristoffer (Jens Albinus) but provides him with little material to work on … yup, this will bring audience moments of surprises and laughters … not to mention some "tears" and "upsets" too …

Conclusion
Worth watching. With the well written script (esp. the voice over lines), I seriously think it would be awesome as a theatre play! Somehow, it does not fully capitalize on the technicalities/possibilities of a film …

I found it quite amusing and is a nice change of pace after the rather grim Maderlay.
