Series cast summary:
Anders Matthesen ...
 Arne / ... (24 episodes, 2003)


As Christmas approaches, life is not problem-free for Stewart Stardust. He is running behind with the rent and faces eviction if he doesn't pay up, and when his son is released from prison Stewart must provide for him as well. But Stewart is a happy man: He's found a good spot for his hot-dog stand and expects to make good money in the busy month of December. So when the engine of his hot-dog stand is stolen, he is understandably upset. Luckily, the immigrant Kefir turns up to fix the engine for free, but are immigrants really so friendly, or is something fishy going on? Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

A great tour de force
8 April 2004 | by (fyn denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a very funny, hilarious, absolutely respectless and politically uncorrect Xmas calendar in 24 parts. A great tour de force from Anden but unlikely to have any chance with anybody not familiar with danish language and present social and political conditions. Story is of course completely unlikely but allows some very harsh satirical punches against the prevailing climate in the Danish discussion about Nationality/Globalization and general tolerance. Music/Songs are very good. Anders Matthesen has actually succeeded in transforming parts of his standup show and radio shows into a very seeable miniserie. I give it 9/10.
