Following the unbridled success of their Scandinavian television box set releases, Arrow Films are pleased to announce that Above The Street Below The Water, a feature length film starring some of Denmark's most high profile acting talent, will be available in the UK for the very first time via a DVD and Digital Download release on 21st January 2013.
Above The Street Below The Water is the intriguing tale of a young family in an affluent area of Denmark, trying to overcome the problems life throws at them.
Starring Sidse Babett Knudsen (who plays the lead role of female prime minister Birgitte Nyborg Christensen in Borgen), Nicolas Bro (who plays Minister of Justice Thomas Buch in The Killing II), Ellen Hillingsø (who plays Charlotte Söringer in The Bridge) and Anders W Berthelsen (who plays billionaire Robert Zeuthen in The Killing III), Above The Street Below The Water features some of the most recognisable faces from the nation's favourite foreign language dramas, here is the chance to catch them in their first ever UK feature film release.
The UK DVD release of Above The Street Below The Water coincides with the hugely anticipated second series of Borgen, which will air in BBC4's prestigious Saturday slot from January 5th. Borgen is the hit show featuring Sidse Babett Knudsen as Denmark's first female Prime Minister. Such was the impact of Borgen's critically acclaimed first series following its debut in early 2012, the show is regularly referred to in UK parliament and often used as an example when discussing world and EU Politics.
Ask is married to Anne and they have everything you could ever want - good careers, lovely children, an apartment in a fashionable area of Denmark and each other.
Everything appears to be just as it should in a modern family faced with juggling work schedules, child rearing and, not least of all, love... Until one morning, Ask tells Anne that he wants to take a break.
It's a choice that will affect every part of their lives and everybody around them. Above The Street Below The Water is a film about the adult generation of today. A generation for whom everything is possible and only the imagination sets the limits for what you can desire.
