This first feature length movie by Franz Ernst using amateur actors set the young woman, Lone off on a ride through a subculture environment in the big city. The hand-held camera as well as the improvised dialog sustains a touch of realism previously not seen in Danish feature films. The fast cutting technique adds to the convincing rendering of the scenes. The leading character comes through as a most believable young girl in her search for warmth and care filled with despair and vulnerability. This way of presenting contemporary subject matter was continued by other film creators, but the feature stands out at the first successful attempt to capture an atmosphere true to the new generation's look upon life.
