Del af kortfilmpakken ‘Daddy + Jeg er en anden (I Am An Other)’

En amerikansk antropolog får et barn med sin danske kone, og rollen som nybagt far får ham til at se sig selv og Danmark i et nyt og selvironisk lys.

Amerikanske Brendan var antropolog og rejste verden rundt for at studere fremmede kulturer og folkeslag. Altså lige indtil han mødte sit livs kærlighed i Danmark og blev far til deres fælles barn. Med et udansk blik på vort lille land - men med en selvironi, som han må have samlet op her - bliver Brendans eget liv genstand for hans professionelle og ofte morsomme syn på faderrollen. Den er nemlig på fuldtid, da det ikke er så let at finde et job, når man ikke rigtigt taler dansk. Enhver forfængelighed er for længst smidt over bord, og ‘Daddy’ er en ærlig og usentimental film med et varmt hjerte.

An American anthropologist has a baby with his Danish wife, and the role of being a new father lets him see himself and Denmark in a new and self-ironic light.

Brendan was an American anthropologist and travelled around the world to study foreign cultures and people. Right until he met the love of his life in Denmark and became the father of their child. With a non-Danish view of our small country, but with a self-irony that he must have picked up here, his own life becomes the subject of his professional and often funny perspective of being a father. It’s a full-time job, since finding work is not so easy when you don’t speak Danish. All vanity has long been disposed of, and ‘Daddy’ is an honest and unsentimental film with a warm heart.
