Gallery 22: Spies - bathroom, Rain

Danish travel agency Spies takes a comedy route to trumpet its bargain prices, with scenarios relating to various destinations. In 'Bathroom', a man shaves his hair off and wears an orange towel, Thai monk style, to the consternation of his young daughter. A wig was used on a bald actor, rather than risk a single take. In 'Rain', a family is drenched by a passing car, referencing the theme-park rides of the Canary Islands. Director Martin Werner interprets Bates Copenhagen's scripts with customary aplomb, shooting five executions in four days.

1 Why creative people have lost their way
