a consumer comedy Jacob Weble.

It’s never nice to be locked up. Not at all if it’s after closing time in a supermarket.

Not at all if it’s in the toilet. And definitely not if you’re locked in with people you can’t stand. Nevertheless, this is the situation for four people on a Saturday afternoon just before closing time in an unusually large shopping center. In the men’s toilet under the shopping center we meet the young idealistic amateur writer (Jens Gotthelf), the bitchy consumerist woman (Berrit Kvorning), the self-sacrificing cashier (Mette Marckmann) and the buttoned-up businessman (Henrik Køhler) with a mysterious attache folder.

It quickly turns out to be no ordinary supermarket. There are big and small mistakes everywhere.

One of the more serious mistakes – if it is a mistake? – is of course that the place locks its customers after closing time in the unattractive toilet. Here, customers can then wonder

why the hand dryer makes noise like a DC-9 taking off. And why a woman’s voice on the loudspeaker keeps announcing more and more bizarre offers when the place has closed. And about who the strange person is, crawling around the place’s ventilation ducts wearing diving clothes and with price tags on the clothes.

As the weekend progresses, the scenario develops with both claustrophobia, territorial warfare and a

little bizarre toilet romance as a result.

Supermarket is an absurd, terrifying and comic piece about an abnormal consumer company that has set itself on everything and everyone. And perhaps – depending on observance –  a protest against a consumption-fixated and consumer-dominated world.
