Danish 'pre-porn' comedy with a happy egging
27 March 2008 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Although from Sweden I am 100% sure this funny little movie's (called 'Bocken i paradiset' in Sweden) Danish original title was/ is 'Det tossede paradis'. A sweet innocent 'pre-porn' (pre-the-major- Danish- 'happy-porn-wave) rural comedy with a star-studded cast: not only comedy giant Dirch Passer and a young Ghita Nørby but also Bodil Steen, Ove Sprogøe, Ebbe Langberg, Paul Hagen, Lone and Helle Hertz, Lotte Tarp etc etc. Directed by Gabriel Axel

The story is set on Trangø, a tiny island in Kategatt. Trangø's greatest pride are the Trangø hens, producing eggs that are bigger, shinier and ... healthier than normal eggs. Above all they have a magical effect on male individuals who consume these eggs... When production (and sales) of these eggs is threatened political chaos is at head... and the Trangø inhabitants prepare to announce political independence
