Storyline

After a gruesome meeting with the tax authorities Alex Alexander takes a drive in the countryside to calm down. While driving, he accidentally runs into an elephant from a circus. When he is stopped by the police and tells them about the elephant they think he is crazy. He is committed to an asylum by the very authorities his taxes are funding. The doctor tries to convince him that the elephants were not really there, but he gets more help from manic fellow patient Knudsen who makes him realize that everybody in the world is crazy in some way.

To think you have to act crazy to be considered sane
5 March 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Fifty years later, and so much still holds up. Once film was invented and especially after sound was added(other than piano music), we Danes got to be rather productive, for half a dozen decades or so. Quite a few of these movies, perhaps most, were farces, and a lot of them now seems too goofy(indeed that quality is present in this, as well). Nevertheless, there are numerous that hold up remarkably well. The Olsen Gang ones are among the best examples of such; and also this little number. With satire over high taxes(perhaps in response to the IRS "grab it where we can" mentality of the time, on account of people not paying for one year until the next, leading to countless cases of the money having been spent) and welfare, not to mention material that points out how you may find yourself in a situation where you have to humor the authority figure, as they decide your future, and they are human beings, with the same flaws as the rest of us, a bunch of this doesn't feel like it's half a century old, and it's surprisingly fair, not really painting anyone as the bad guy(except maybe those who are sheep, and do not question their boss regardless of what he tells them). This is hilarious, with silliness, cleverness, verbal and some slapstick. It does try too hard at times. The score helps sell bits, and is overbearing. There are things that get to be over the top, and yes, with Petersen in the lead and Passer in an unusually small role, a portion of the jokes or gags do rely on seeing them going nuts, yelling and the like(with that said, that is genuinely funny, and it tends to make sense). The acting is actually pretty good. This is realistic, if not entirely all of the way through. The script is largely great; the conclusion, whilst offering reasonable wrap-up, is clearly more about catharsis, and it does drag it down a tad that it serves little purpose, as one of the few scenes. This has a very fast pace; in fact, it never stands still. The legacy of silent motion pictures is honored in this, with sequences that are in homage to them, without feeling forced, and they are likely to make you laugh. There is brief nudity and a little strong language in this. I recommend this to any fan of our comedies. 8/10
