Madame Soeborg’s Sense of Life  – the story of a very outspoken old lady.

Anne-Marie Soeborg is 95 years old, cultural-radical, and lives in Copenhagen. Lying in bed, receiving visitors and drinking Manhattans, Anne-Marie has strong opinions on everything and a grotesque sense of humor. Her grand-daughter, Anna-Katarina, travels the world, filming for the New York Times, and her daughter, Anne-Mette, works as a pastor, despite having lost a leg and an arm in a car accident. The three women are living together – an arrangement that has lasted for six generations. Men are wonderful, but only for show and fun. We join Anne-Marie at her bedside for her 95th birthday and witness the revelation of family secrets.

Madam Soeborg’s Sense of Life is the story of three strong and independent women. To the sounds of yesteryear playing from the old B&O reel-to-reel in the living room, the viewers are led into an enchanting Copenhagen universe of canapés and theatre shows from olden days.

The film is the first in a trilogy on three generations of charismatic women.
