Storyline

The seamstress Bolette lives in a little village in the countryside. She is unmarried, but in her youth she had a love affair with Peter Enevoldsen, who now is the political leader of the parish. Bolette is a strong and frank woman, who never hesitates to express pungent truths. She finds out that Enevoldsen's son Karl is in love with the housemaid Sophie and has made her pregnant. As Sophie needs financial support Bolette goes straight to Enevoldsen and tells him the whole story. He gets furious and disowns his son. The prominent men in the parish are tired of Bolette's sharp tongue and want to get rid of her. Enevoldsen suggests that they shall try to marry off Bolette with the peddler Morten Madsen, who lives in another parish. When they offer Morten 650 Danish crowns, a pig, a fatted calf and an alarm-clock if he marries Bolette, he accepts. Bolette and Morten find out that they like each other and the wedding day is settled. But Morten now has a bad conscience about taking bribes...

Humorous battle axe
26 December 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

In 1938, you could still get away with presenting a plot of a town council paying a bachelor to marry a battle axe to get her out of town. Emanuel Gregers had a lucky hand in transferring this theater play to film making it a highlight of comedies from this decade, primarily because of the talents of Bodil Ipsen, who was the proper actor to portray this broad comedy female and still keep up the credibility and strength of the character. Apart from a similar performance in 'Sørensen og Rasmussen' this is her finest hour in the comedy genre, but she could also meet the requirements of serious parts as well as direct films. And on top of that she can sing, too! Peter Malberg is a qualified partner for a woman like her, being an epitaph of original comedy actors of his generation. The rural setting is presented very convincingly and the songs work just fine. All in all a masterpiece in the comedy genre.
