Charlie Siem has achieved worldwide success as both a violinist and a model. The 31-year-old Brit is a perfectionist who seeks to control every aspect of his life. He is constantly driven to achieve more and will only accept the best life has to offer – in any and all situations. In A MODERN MAN, director Eva Mulvad uses Siem as a prism to examine the idea of living the perfect life. Why do we continue to strive for perfection? And at what cost? Why does a man who has everything still want more? Does the perfect life even exist?
Eva Mulvad (Denmark 1972) Selected filmography: MED DØDEN TIL FØLGE (2011), THE GOOD LIFE (2010), A WOMAN AMONG WARLORDS (2008)
