The Good Life cover


Two ladies – mother and daughter – live together on the sunny Portuguese coast. They’ve always lived on first class. The daughter Anne Mette, 56, has never worked and grew up believing that money is something you just pick up at the bank. But what do you do when the bank account is suddenly empty? For three years the film follows mother and daughter in their numerous and often funny attempts to adapt to their new grim reality of unpaid bills. In the beginning, the daughter states “I’d rather die than work” but later she reluctantly tries to enter a job market she knows nothing about. The Good Life is a tragi-comic story of glory and fall, but also a film about upbringing and over-protection in a family that had it all and ending up with nothing.
