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]
