THE DAD

BASED ON THE HILARIOUS ONE-MAN-SHOW


Thorsson Productions has sold the German film rights to Munchen based Blue Eyes Fiction.

A German speaking film is set to go into production in 2012, scheduled for a 2013 German release.

Territory: Germany, Switzerland, Austria.

ABOUT THE MOVIE: Tryggve is a successful crime fiction writer in his forties, a selfish bachelor, convinced childless singleton, who is more attached to his stylish car than to his own parents. At a book fair, he meets Eva, a gallery manager. By a random sequence of events, Eva becomes pregnant and soon Tryggve and Eva start living together.

Tryggve postpones his writing deadlines and plunges into taking care of his pregnant partner, who, as it turns out, is expecting twins.

After the twins are born, Tryggve gets consumed by father duties and finally surrenders to the nostalgia of his old bachelor days and the tempting of his fellow writer Per. Eva, with the twin-girls, moves out of Tryggve’s apartment. Soon Tryggve realizes his loneliness and wants Eva and the girls back, but it is not that easy. This time, he really has to make a significant effort. A coming-of-age dramatic comedy about a man resisting to grow up.
