Rasmus Bjerg stars as the iconic Danish singer-songwriter John Mogensen in Ole Bornedal’s biopic, named after one of his all-time hit records, As Long As I Live (Så længe jeg lever). Originally a member of the popular song quartet Four Jacks from 1956-1963, John Mogensen made a remarkable comeback as a solo artist in 1971 until his early death in 1977 caused by the over-consumption of alcohol, which was part and parcel of his life. Helle Fagralid plays his wife Ruth in a cast that also include Peter Christoffersen and Peter Mygind.
As Long As I Live is produced by Jonas Allen and Peter Bose for Miso Film, and premieres domestically on March 8, 2018. Watch the trailer here.
