Synopsis: A middle age loner named Jens who has spent his life avoiding conflict is forced out of his comfort zone.

Bakerman is the third feature film from David Noel Bourke who previous films include, Last Exit and No Right Turn. Bakerman originally began as another much more ambitious project titled White Pig.

Bakerman is a well-constructed psychological drama that features a fragile protagonist who by the end the film grows substantially. The film features a meticulously laid out narrative that is reinforced by a well-defined protagonist. Pacing is never an issue as key moments are given an ample amount of time to fully resonate.

Another strength of this film’s narrative are the calm moments of reflection between and after the violent outbursts. Thematically this film deals with themes that anyone can universally connect with. Thus, making this film’s moment of truth all the more portent.

From a production stand point, there are no area’s where this film is lacking. The direction is rock solid and then it comes to the visuals they do a superb job maintaining the mood. And not to be overlooked is Mikkel Vadsholt’s remarkable performance in the role of this film’s protagonist Jen’s.
