    The original Danish film tells the story of a family gathering to celebrate their father's 60th birthday. At the birthday dinner, his eldest son publicly accuses him of sexually abusing and raping both him and his twin sister (who had just recently committed suicide).

    It was successfully adapted by David Eldridge in 2004. Other versions have been known as 'The Celebration', the English translation of the title
