Trivia

Director Tage Danielsson made this make partially to force himself to give up his own smoking. He thought that if he had made a movie about giving up smoking, he'd be too embarrassed to pick it up again. See more »

User Reviews

A fun seventies movie
8 August 1999 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Based on The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri this movie deals with the problem of quitting smoking. It is a whimsical, not at all realistic story divided into parts (Inferno, Purgatory, Paradise). Typical of the humor of Swedish movie makers Hans Alfredsson and Tage Danielsson. A nice movie to get your mood up on a dull day.
