Nice beginning of a (minor) legend
16 December 2009 | by (Konstanz, Germany) – See all my reviews

This was the first cooperation of Carl Schenstrøm and Harald Madsen, and 88 years later, it's still fun to watch (for me at least).

The two (anti-)heroes who go by so many names (let's call them Pat & Patachon as it says on my DVD box) play traveling knife sharpeners, as well as detectives, in this lovable old piece. They research the case of a make-believe count flirting with a rich farmer's daughter while being the longtime fiancé of a struggling film actress. Many great scenes evolve in the subplot of a filming on a Danish beach, most prominently with a biplane and its mishaps.

As old as it is, and as cut-up as the German TV version in 24 minutes runtime (with possibly overdosed voice-over by Hanns Dieter Hüsch), the power of Danish film-making still gets across very well. Not only Chaplin or Lloyd did make memorable films way back then.

I bought this in a 7-DVD Kinowelt box containing 32 "movies" (or what TV reuse left of them), at bargain €12, and enjoyed it very much. Over the present merry season, I'll watch them all, and let you know what I think :) This one gets 8/10 from me.
