At one point in the film Polyhymnia mentions having heard about kissing from Venus. Since Venus is the Roman Goddess of love and the other Gods are Greek, it should be Aphrodite instead. See more »

A beautiful, funny and a little naive film about a muse coming to earth
17 July 2000 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

The muse is played by Bodil Kjer, at a time when her beauty peaked. The story involves a muse sent to Copenhagen to help a composer write a musical show. She falls in love with a man from the airforce and is soon haunted by her father Zeus, who want's her back and cannot allow the daughter of a god to mingle too closely with humans. This storyline is filled out with funny side-caracters and musical-shows that are clearly not American, but inhere lies the films charm. The acting is very good in all roles.

The plotline from the film Xanadu, seems nearly to be a ripoff (or can you call it a remake?).
