MAX EMBARRASSING 2
An amusing coming of age tale from Lotte Svendsen’s Max-universe. Now 14, Max is about to decide on an internship and is finding it difficult to choose. He settles, against his mother’s wishes, for a bank internship. But mother Agnethe, still quite embarrassing, acts and enrols Max in a free-spirited camp for the sake of his soul’s salvation. Meanwhile his love life is hanging by a thread; Esther seems less and less interested in him even though he is trying to win her over. The Max universe is based on a perpetual idea that children are afraid to appear embarrassed as they evolve into maturity. Likewise, it seems that their parents also become embarrassed when they make attempts to protect their children or express their love for them.
