The best movie of director/actor Erik Clausen.
19 October 2003 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

If your danish and over 20 years of age, chances are very high you have seen this movie some point in your life. And what a great movie it is. Erik Clausen is perfectly cast as Axel a working class man with a big mouth and VERY bad manors, one of the all time best movies in danish cinema.

10/10.
