Dark Horse

Dark Horse is a comedy drama about the charmingly irresponsible graffiti-artist, Daniel, who lives in Copenhagen and earns his living painting declarations of love, on demand, on the walls of the city. Until he meets and falls in love with the equally irresponsible and charming, Fran, that is. Suddenly he finds he has to make a very grown up choice.

Synopsis

Daniel is constantly on the run from parking tickets, overdue bills and – the police. And yet he still manages to lead a carefree life. Until he meets and falls in love with the equally irresponsible and charming, Fran, that is. Suddenly he finds he has to make a very grown up choice.

Dark Horse is also a film about the ubiquitous triangle. Daniel’s best friend, Grandad, is a chubby 28 year old nerd, who would rather spy on girls from afar than approach them. He has been in love with Fran since the very first time he laid eyes on her. And now his best friend is dating her.
