“The Commune” is a humorous, loving and moving portrait of a family who grows into a larger family and the pain that ensues as they slowly lose one another. It is a story in which a generation is confronted with their beliefs and becomes victims of their own ideals.

Trine Dyrholm and Ulrich Thomsen play Anna and Erik, an academic couple who decide to start a commune together with a group of close friends and eccentric personalities. With the family in the center of the story, we are invited into the dream of a real commune; we participate in the house meetings, dinners and parties. It is friendship, love and togetherness under one roof until an earth-shattering love affair puts the community and the commune to its greatest test yet.
