A brilliant Danish comedy by the author who is listed among the most significant contemporary film producers, owns a collection of gnomes in the garden of his production company, suffers from various anxieties including the fear of flying, who loves the band ABBA and used to go under the pseudonym of Erik Nietzsche but nowadays known as Lars von Trier (*1956).

Ravn is both a managing director and owner of a company but he successfully keeps this secret from his colleagues who take him for an ordinary employee. 

He can thus blame the imaginary boss that no one has ever met for all unpopular decisions. Only now, when he tries to sell the company, he needs to find someone who could pretend to be the boss. Who better for such a role than an unknown and underrated actor!

Kristoffer is happy to take on the role and his enthusiasm grows by the day with more and more tasks... Yet, nothing is as simple as it seemed at the start. For starters, it looks like Ravn told each of the employees a different story about the boss and to top it off Kristoffer's former wife shows up. Above all, Kristoffer decides to act in the spirit of his favorite playwright Gambini!

A charactertistic comedy The Boss of It All is far from boring, whether you are a fan of IT or monologues of the Chimney Sweep in the Town without Chimneys!

RAVN: "It just works! Say 'yes' to everything and when it comes to worst, just give orders. Don't budge! You are the CEO after all!"
