Correctness And Efficiency, 23 March 2007

Camille is a pretty girl who has more than one job in the arts world ( she is an occasional actress and a ballerina ) and a very complicated love life that this German Count will try to explain. Camille loves Jean, a playwright, but he is having an affair with Herr Simon's wife. Herr Simon, a vigorous Dane, has no remorse using the whip "à la Pola style" on his wife when he finally discovers that she is deceiving him. However it is Paul, a painter, who really loves Camille. Paul even dares to paint his lover, a very risky business because everybody knows that it is not very advisable to mix work with love affairs.

With such a story, the film "Balletdanserinden" is full of the comings and goings of occasional lovers, dates and escapes, meetings and mix-ups and, the least that could be expected in such a tangle of loving and fussing, a tragic final ending for one of the characters and an illuminating and even happy outcome for another one.

Damen Nielsen stars together with Herr Psilander ( this time this handsome Danish fellow is not the main character of the story )in this exemplary "Nordisk" film production directed by Herr August Blom. As always one must emphasize the correctness and efficiency of those films productions, as they are very well done by the versatile film directors of this Danish company.

And now, if you'll allow me, I must temporarily take my leave because this German Count too must sort out another fuss involving more than one Teutonic and fat heiress
