Wonderful
1 October 2002 | by (DK) – See all my reviews

Using the WW2 as a background, for a much more universal and timeless story is not try often, but here you see a wonderful poetic story with perfect acting. Kjeld Jacobsen has his best role, and Willaume, Brusck, Miehe-Renard and Ingdal is all great. Funny, beautiful and classic - Rifbjerg/Schmidts best. 9/10
