Award-winning Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen stars in his third short film produced by Danish furniture retailer BoConcept. Following up the 2 previous films – ‘THE CALL’ and ‘THE GUEST’ – in ‘THE FIGHT’ Mads is paid a visit by two BoConcept Interior Decorators. But what they find when they arrive on his doorstep is perhaps not quite what they were expecting…
Our homes are very much an extension of ourselves – our hopes, our aspirations, our desires and our quirks. That doesn’t mean that decorating is easy. There is a multitude of choices out there and the process can be confusing.
With ‘THE FIGHT’, BoConcept wants to highlight an Interior Decoration service that helps customers solve challenges from a corner of their living room to their entire home. In ‘THE FIGHT’ the BoConcept Interior Decoration team definitely gives Mads Mikkelsen plenty of time to focus on what he does best - acting.
Although the film is just under 3 minutes long, it’s packed with action and special effects. ‘It’s been a while since I have had a more physically demanding role like this one’ explains Mads Mikkelsen. ‘I really enjoyed doing these stunts – I may just have turned 50, but I am in super shape and I think it is so much fun to do things like this.’ Mads was guided through the stunts by the professional stunt coordinator Kimmo Rajala. ‘Mads is very athletic and eager to make it look just right, so it was one of those projects that was a real pleasure to work on.’
‘THE FIGHT’ is directed by Mads Mikkelsen’s old friend and colleague Dejan Cukic. The special effects team is led by Hummer Højmark, an industry veteran, who has done SFX for many blockbuster action films with Mockingjay II as the most recent one. ‘THE FIGHT’ was shot on location in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, Denmark.
