Kein Problem

A Film by Magnus Millang

Synopsis

NO PROBLEM.
Copenhagen, late 1990s. When the lead singer of Denmark’s second-best cover band calls in sick, the band’s two insecure backup singers start backstabbing each other over the role as lead singer for the night. Who knew that jambands could be the scene of a life-or-death drama? May the best man in denim shorts and denim vest win.

    Magnus Millang

    Magnus Millang, born in 1981, is a director, scriptwriter and well- known Danish comedian. He got his real break-through 2012 with the Danish comedy-series "Danish Dynamite" which he both wrote, directed as well as was acting in and has since then become one of the most successful Danish comedy-assets, both off- as well as on screen.
    Magnus' exquisite timing and huge interest in comic- but at the same time natural details make him tell funny stories in an understated and super refined way.
