– A film by Stig Guldberg

Year: 2018. Duration: 60 min.

Format: Streaming


Life-affirming documentary about the friendship between four outsiders.


The author Lars Morell and his three friends Boje, Anders and Veigaard have all in common that they are out of synch with their times and the surrounding society – and sometimes out of sync with each other. They don’t care about the prevailing norms and what others might think of them. And they are attracted by all things weird, chaotic and cheerfully mad about each other. THE ORIGINALS took more than seven years to make, and follows the friends through ups and downs with difficult emotions. It is a life between light and dark, the cheerful and the horrible, between order and chaos. What from the outside might look like ‘losers’ turn out, upon closer inspection, to be loveable originals, who represent other values than the norm. Why should the majority decide what is normal? Stig Guldberg’s film pays tribute to friendship, in good times and bad, and through its unusual antiheroes it asks: what can we learn from originals and what would we do without friendship?
