Charlie Butterfly is written by the internationally renowned author KLAUS RIFBJERG in collaboration with Dariusz Steiness. Zentropa produced the film in collaboration with the Danish Film Institute.

The film is Rifbjerg and Steiness’ serious bid on a classic father-son epos. Their goal was to create a work of art which is timeless and broadly appealing, and – above all – rises the individual above its own destiny.


Charlie Butterfly won the Audience Award at Mannheim-Heidelberg Int. Film Festival, the Most Innovative Cinematography Prize in Madrid – Madrid Imagen – and was nominated for seven Robert Awards in Denmark.
