It's an old saying that in the classic danish film period, no movies emerged that wasn't masterpieces. This movie proves, that this is far from the case.
Frøken Nitouche is about a nun and a soldier getting married against their will, with someone they haven't seen. They both meet each other and falls in love without knowing who each other are. The plot of the movie is extremely plain, and the ending can predicted by all after less than ten minutes of watching. So you sit in the end and only waits for the ending to happen, so the movie will end. An even worse factor is the musical aspects, every five minutes everyone seems to have the urge to burst into spontaneus singing - even though the moment is totally inappropriate - and the songs are ridiculous and a waste of time. And how the nun Charlotte is praised to be the top-'boy' of the convict, and seems to matter more to the leader than all the other nuns together gives the movie an un-real aspect.
The entire movie raises up to, that we should identify and cherish the three leading characters (the nun, the soldier lad and the man who brings them together, and plays the leading role), but I can do neither. A few funny moments and clever lines saves the movie from total disaster, but all in all a great dissapointment. This is in no way a disaproval of Dirch Passer, who was one of our greatest actors and humourists, but this is just too silly and stupid.
