Sex, Drugs & Taxation (2013) Trailer
Trailer for Sex, Drugs & Taxation.
For some of the most amazing characters you come across in history, just how they fit into the picture only becomes clear after a long time. 'Their biographical narratives go far beyond themselves,’ Christoffer Boe rightly commented about the protagonists of this black tragicomedy: tour operator Simon Spies (played by R and Borgen star Pilou Asbaek) and tax lawyer Mogens Glistrup (the equally well-known Nicolas Bro). In the film, we see how both men set up Spies' travel agency and become stinking rich in a new growth market: Danish mass tourism. Everyone wants to go to Majorca, and they make it possible. Spies is an extravagant, hedonistic playboy who doesn’t shirk from using his sexual escapades for marketing purposes. In the 1970s, he spent millions on the then-usual psychedelic quest for himself, while the unattractive bourgeois Glistrup stubbornly developed his conservative anti-tax position into a surprising political career.
