Von Trier's "Boss" Set for Montreal Fest

Lars von Trier's "The Boss of it All" will have its international premiere at the 2006 Festival du Nouveau Cinema, running from October 18 - 28 in Montreal, according to organizers. Called "a comic turn" by the Danish director, the film is described as "the tale of the owner of a technology company who decides to sell the firm. The hitch is that when he founded the company, he invented a fictitious president to hide behind when it was time to announce difficult decisions. Now that it's time to sell, potential buyers want to negotiate with the non-existent 'president'...so the owner hires a struggling actor to play the part." The cast, mostly Danish actors, includes Jens Albinus, Casper Christensen, Peter Gantzler and Jean-Marc Barr. [Eugene Hernandez]
