Storyline

A great cult comedy that was probably ahead of its time. A beloved movie among danish sailors. Martha is a very old and very rusty freight steamer, sailing in the Mediterranean, almost forgotten by the danish shipping line. The crew takes advantage of this, leading a very comfortable and luxurious life on board. Not without financial problems though. One day the ships owner suddenly needs to sail on her. He is a very old school and disciplined person and certainly not satisfied with the state of the ship and the crew. But the crew shows their worth when they have to fight for the survival of their beloved old steamer. Written by Peter Rasmussen

Nøøøøøj den er god!
26 April 2001 | by (Esbjerg, Danmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best danish movies ever, matching; I Kina spiser de hunde, and Blinkende lygter. The movie gives a view into the relation between Sweden and Denmark, saying, that the danes will newer pass against the swedes, and always give all that we can muster. I have used this movie to make friends, with many danes throughout Denmark; whenever I have mentioned it, there has always been someone who knew, this masterpiece in danish movie history. And i have newer met anyone, that did not like this movie.
