Jesper Lohmann stars in the role as the undertaker, in this brilliant short film, about two men dealing with their wife's dead. 'Knight of Fortune' is nominated in the category: 'Best Live Action Short' at the 96th Oscars 2024, on March 10.


Knight of Fortune is about the loss of a loved one, the grief, the risk of yellow skin, and a coffin, that is too much for Karl to face. Then it's much easier to fix a broken lamp. Karl meets Torben - a destined brother. An absurd, humorous, and melodic meeting between two old men captured by grief. Knight of Fortune is a short film written and directed by Lasse Lyskjær Noer and produced in Denmark, Scandinavia by Jalabert Productions and Kim Magnusson/M&M Productions.

'Lasse Lyskjær Noer's Knight of Fortune possesses the best type of unpredictability - the kind that surprises in its absurdity without losing the authenticity that prevents it from becoming absurd.' The Filmstage.com
