International furniture retailer BoConcept resumes its successful film series with Mads Mikkelsen – in ‘The Guest‘. We re-join Mads Mikkelsen in beautiful surroundings in Valencia Spain – here he lives the stereo typical life of a movie star with high-heeled models walking around the house and swim-suit babes in the pool, but these are mere distractions to the real secret of the house.
Famous for his chilling performances as Le Chiffre in James Bond and Hannibal Lechter in the successful TV-series Hannibal, Mads Mikkelsen this time shows off his comedy talents and is irresistibly charming and fun. He is surrounded by beautiful women, but seems to have his mind set on something a lot more practical. The result is highly entertaining and shows Mads Mikkelsen teaming up with Danish colleague and good friend Dejan Cukic: ‘It was great to join up with Dejan. We go way back and have had a lot of fun together through the years, so it was easy to play two good friends who seem to have this implied understanding although it appears that we may have grown apart and now have different interests – and obviously my interests are now a bit more grown up than Dejan’s’, says the famous actor with reference to what happens in the film.
‘Compared to the previous film THE CALL, which was high on drama, we wanted to make something more light-hearted and fun, and Mads is perfect in the role as the furniture geek while I get to look at beautiful women. That’s the advantage of also being the Director. I get to cast the roles’, says the Danish actor and director with a smile.
THE GUEST is a short 5 minute film and the second of two films that Mads Mikkelsen has made for Danish furniture retailer BoConcept. The first film THE CALL was launched in February this year. Both were shot on location in best-selling BoConcept designer Morten Georgsen’s amazing villa in Valencia, Spain. The keyword for both films have been great style in furniture, clothing and definitely also in terms of cars with the high performance and amazing Tesla.
Both films have been made by BoConcept who want to tell the audience what they can achieve with their furniture design. Not in a commercial sense, but in a more engaging and entertaining approach where Mads Mikkelsen puts his acting skills to perfect use.
