    • Synopsis
    • Longtime Festival favourite Ole Christian Madsen (Prague, Kira's Reason, Flame Citroen) is best known for powerful dramas about domestic discord, but his latest is a slyly funny romantic comedy about the mercurial, confounding nature of love and desire. The ostensible hero is Christian (Anders W. Berthelsen), the owner of a Copenhagen rare wine shop. As the film opens, Christian is bemoaning the impending remarriage of his wife, the temperamental Anna (Paprika Steen), a sports agent who has left him to live in Buenos Aires with one of the world's most infamous soccer players, Juan Diaz (Sebastián Estevanez). Finding courage at the bottom of another vintage bottle, Christian packs up his son and heads for Buenos Aires to win Anna back. Where Madsen's earlier films were about the pain of letting go, Superclásico is more about its possible benefits.
