SYNOPSIS:
========

Never corner a baker…

Jens (Mikkel Vadsholdt) has accepted far too much for too long. Being the shy night-owl he is, he keeps to himself, but the world will not let him be. The new master baker’s quality starts
slackening, and when a bunch of yobs one day smash the window of Jens’s car, he takes one of them out. Intoxicated by his own new unexpressed vigour, Jens comes out of his shell, but the destructive driving force leads him towards a free fall.

Headed by the always solid Mikkel Vadsholdt (The Sunfish), who here manages to arouse our empathy in a role of a reserved man who has difficulty coping with the light of day.

REVIEWS:
========

* REVIEW 1: “Cinema Scandinavia”

Bakerman is typically Scandinavian; dark, straight-to-the-point, and dark in comedy. It’s beautifully made, thought-provoking and a must-see at the film festivals it’ll travel to. Bourke is a thoughtful and interesting director, and definitely one to watch.

* REVIEW 2: UK Film Review – MJ Simpson

“…Bakerman is a meditation on the nature of heroes and heroism. Jens feels like a hero when he starts taking out the city’s lowlifes, and especially when he rescues Mozan. Anna calls him a hero just for giving her a lift in his car. At Anna’s fancy dress party, Jens wears a generic superhero outfit. Even the film’s title is an allusion to heroics: he’s not Superman or Batman or Iron Man or Spider-Man, he’s Bakerman, Eventually Jens realises that life’s not about being a hero, it’s just about decency, understanding and caring. We don’t need heroes, we just need decent human beings. Opening yourself up to someone and letting them into your life – and letting them let you into their life – is heroic enough…”

* REVIEW 3: 10K Bullets – Exploring the World of Cinema

“..The direction is rock solid and then it comes to the visuals they do a superb job maintaining the mood. And not to be overlooked is Mikkel Vadsholt’s remarkable performance in the role of this film’s protagonist Jens.”

* REVIEW 4: UK, You’ve got red on you

“The acting performances are also worthy of praise. Mikkel Vadsholt does a solid job in portraying a conflicted character who says little but still offers intrigue. It’s not an easy role to play and a lesser actor could have created a totally unsympathetic character. But Vadsholt’s portrayal of a man very much alone in the world is impressive. Then we have Siir Tilif who plays Mozan..she a beautiful on screen presence, she also manages to convey a sense of vulnerability but also inner strength that is a joy to watch…”

* REVIEW 5, Lund Film Festival REVIEW:

“…a hypnotic drive into a lonely man’s soul”
