AFR (film) movie scenes

The film uses archival footage, actors, and computer effects to portray an assassination of the Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, and even before the release received substantial criticism from those who believed the subject was exploitive and in bad taste, and is therefore very similar to the controversial British mockumentary Death of a President which portrays the fictional assassination of the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush.

The faux documentary broadcast surrounds the Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen and his secret homosexual lover, Emil (Morten Hartz Kaplers) until the Prime Minister is assassinated.

Among the real archival footage there was a clip of Pia Kjærsgaard, who says, "[...]og så var han jo bøsse, det var kendt for enhver" ("and he was also gay; everybody knew that"). Pia Kjærsgaard has dissociated herself from the use of the clip which origins from a statement to the assassination of the homosexual Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn in 2002. Several other politicians and leaders appear in the movie as well.

The mockumentary was presented at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam in January 2007, where it won the Tiger Award, as well as 10,000 euro and the rights for it to be broadcast on national television.

AFR was released in Danish cinemas on April 20, 2007.
