Great jazz soundtrack too
22 March 2008 | by (Minnesota, United States) – See all my reviews

I was visiting Copenhagen recently and stopped into the Nationalmuseet (National Museum). There was an exhibit with Danmarksfilmen playing on a continuous loop and I was so transfixed that I had to watch it twice. An earlier reviewer mentioned the documentary style of how Denmark saw itself before the Second World War but did not discuss how the whole film is propelled by the soundtrack - some of the best, bouncy jazz from the 1930s I've ever heard. Perhaps that was the fascination for me

  • the mixture of great jazz set against mostly agricultural scenes of a


long-gone Denmark. You wouldn't think it would work but it does. I was disappointed that the museum gift shop did not have either a DVD of the movie or a CD of the soundtrack. The nearby Danish Film Institute had a copy for sale and I regret not buying it because I can't find it in the US.
