I'm a big fan of Jannik Hastrup and his movies. This movie is perhaps his greatest movie, although I would prefer to watch Fuglekrigen i Kanøfleskoven (The Bird War), or some of his other movies.

This movie is special, because it's a cartoon for adults. This is why it had a hard time selling tickets, because adults have decided that cartoons is a child thing. That's really sad in this case.

There are a lot of the fairytale-characters of H. C. Andersen all through the film, and there are also many references to his life.

Well, that's all. Try to borrow this film, and enjoy it. It's almost perfect.
