The guests who come to the mansion of aristocratic landowner and man of the world Nikolai over the Christmas holidays are hand-picked. Among them is a politician, a young countess and a general with his wife. They converse and dine – what a wonderful, much-missed way of life – indulge in parlour games and discuss the right form of authority in the face of political impotence as well as progress and morality, death and the Antichrist. As the debate becomes more heated, cultural differences become increasingly apparent and the mood grows tense.

‘Malmkrog’ was the recipient of the Encounters Award for Best Director (Cristi Puiu) at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2020, and also won Best Screenplay and a Golden Giraldillo for Best Film at the Seville European Film Festival in 2020.
