Ernst and the Light
Denmark / 1996 / fiction / 12' / Focus on Denmark
Ernst is returning home from a business trip. He is just one hour of driving away from his wife when he stops to take a suspect hitchhiker. It turns out that his companion has extraordinary powers – he may turn electricity on and off on cue. These supernatural abilities come from the fact that the hitchhiker is from another world – he is Jesus himself. He returned after many years and plans to introduce a new order with the assistance of a chosen individual, which is the role assigned to Ernst himself. But Ernst is not impressed at all by the return of the saviour and his old-fashioned tricks. He has a completely different proposal for him as regards the salvation of the world.
