The Art of Crying (Danish: Kunsten at Græde i Kor) is a 2006 Danish tragicomedy directed by Peter Schønau Fog. It stars Jannik Lorenzen (da) and Jesper Asholt in a harsh tale about an 11-year-old boy's struggle to hold intact his bizarre family with its abusive father, mother in denial, and rebellious sister during the social unrest of the early 1970s. Based upon an autobiographical novel by Erling Jepsen, the screenplay was written by Bo Hr. Hansen. In 2007, the film received both the Bodil and Robert awards for Best Danish Film, and The Nordic Council Film Prize.
