17 October 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

following Kalle through this movie is a fantastic voyage of kitch music and cinematography! As a close resemblance to a previous movie by the same producers (hannibal og jerry), this story is great for adults and kids alike -though not a date movie. stylized and filmed in a very bright and Barbie-ken universe, and with a fun and quirky soundtrack, it carries with it a very special style not found anywhere else...

the only thing that prevents this moving from reaching a ten, are the very things that make it so good: 1: you probably have to be a Dane to really enjoy the songs and dialogue fully! 1b: the Dane aspect counts greatly, as this movie is packed with cameo appearances by the best singers, comedians and actors in Denmark. 2: it conveys a very special feel and "folksy" perfect world... it is definitely a movie you would have to give a chance and try to move into the mindset and feel of it!

that said, WATCH THIS MOVIE! its great fun
