Skovbjerg commented: “Producer Eva Jakobsen introduced me to Eskil and when I browse the script, the story experienced these an influence on me. Eskil did what he does so effectively: he developed these gorgeous, but advanced characters, whom you really feel biased about at very first and then get started to fall in adore with. Or the other way all around. They are not that simple.

“‘Copenhagen Does Not Exist’ revolves all around a radical and unconventional appreciate story of two folks breaking out of the norm.
