Thomas Vinterberg’s film is set in the middle of the 1970s in a friendly suburb of Copenhagen. The lead characters, Erik, Anna and their daughter Freja, decide to make their dream of an authentic commune come true. Yet the idea of the loving and tolerant family of friends, based on solidarity and sharing, starts to crack when Erik moves his mistress to the house. Can the ideal withstand the conflict with reality? Is a commune more than a family?
