Danish movie: “Uncle” Onkel (2019)

April 8, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Kris lives with her partly disabled uncle in rural Denmark and together they run a small farm. In their quirky yet loving relationship built around daily routines, words aren’t necessary. Kris is the dominant workhorse and she has taken on a motherly and overprotective role towards her uncle. When Kris saves a calf during a complicated birth, her interest in the veterinary field is reawakened. She develops a friendship with the chatty veterinarian Johannes and slowly experiences life outside the farm. As love crosses her path, a possible life-changing question emerges.
