Storyline

This travelogue begins with the vast agricultural wealth of the country, whose farmers can produce four times the amount required to feed the country's population. As such, the export of these agricultural products is a vital part of the country's economy. This agricultural tradition extends to its food consumption, as Denmark's vast array of open faced sandwiches is world renowned. It also extends to flower production and the Dane's love of flowers, which are sold in public markets. Denmark has a strong social support system, as witnessed by the free and mandatory public schooling, free medical services for expectant mothers and children, the provision of cooperative housing and housing for seniors, and the provision of old age pensions without premiums.

Farms and sandwiches
23 October 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

It takes a while for this Fitzgerald traveltalk to get up to speed. THe first couple of minutes are spent showing a field of grain that could be anywhere. After a while we see horses and farmworkers, but it is not until we are shown shots of Copenhagen that it is visually clear we are in Denmark. This subtle method of inserting the viewer into Denmark may be too much for the viewer. In addition, we get to see platters of open-faced sandwiches. While this might have been noteworthy in 1953, it looks odd to my more modern eye.

Nonetheless, this is pretty much a standard Traveltalks film. We are assaulted with Fitzgerald's dry recitation of statistics and state support of the Lutheran church. Still, the pictures are well composed, if obviously staged.
