Behind the Facade
The Riebers are a wealthy family living in the south of Norway. Rieber Sr. is the head of a profitable shipping insurance company, his wife is a housewife with a taste for alcohol and their children are eccentrics in their own right. In the tradition of Agatha Christie, the family prefers to air its grievances over lavish dinners - with murder as a central ingredient.
BAK FASADEN is an ambitious and charming amateur production that proves that Norway is still fertile ground for filmmakers.
