Malmkrog

Available on MUBI
Aristocratic landowner and man of the world Nikolai hand-picks the guests who come to the mansion over the Christmas holidays. Among them are a politician, a young countess and a general with his wife. They converse and dine – what a wonderful, much-missed way of life – indulge in parlour games and discuss the right form of authority in the face of political impotence as well as progress and morality, death and the Antichrist. As the debate becomes more heated, cultural differences become increasingly apparent and the mood grows tense.
Starring Frédéric Schulz-Richard, Ugo Broussot, Marina Palii
