Bro’s good friend, Director Christoffer Boe, lends him a camera and suggests that he films everything – a piece of advice that Bro takes far too literally.
Bro’s constant filming succeeds in driving both his friends and wife nuts, and Lene ends up moving to a secret address in Berlin.
Bro’s plans thus die a sudden death, but obsessed by the idea of completing his film,
Bro hires Danish actress Trine Dyrholm to play his wife, Lene.
Nothing goes according to plan and Bro’s last hope of reclaiming his lost love is to seek out Lene in Berlin.
It is a journey that gradually causes Bro to come apart at the seams in his increasingly desperate attempt to register his life on film.
Mr. Boe & Co.
Mr. Boe & Co. is a small group of people in love with cinema. Being a two-way street, they want to give something back to this wonderful invention of the 20th century.
It might not always be to everybody's liking - but it's always done with a good heart and the best of intentions. As they would say - if cinema is an illusion, who needs reality?
