'Den Anden Side' is a documentary film about one of Denmark’s greatest comedians, Anders Matthesen.
Matthesen just turned 40 and for a long time now, he’s been a somewhat of a phenomenon in Danish show business. With the same raw attitude and honesty that Danes recognize from stage, this film invites you into the private life and work of a great artistic mind.
The audience will meet a dedicated artist, who is constantly working to stay original and present something new, and something better than last time. But we also meet a man, who encounters a crisis of stress and insecurity, who is seriously considering whether to end his career.
This film is an intense journey in four of the most defining years in one of Denmark’s most remarkable minds. A journey through chaos, success, doubts, and laughs – an honest story of a remarkable multi-talented man.
