User Reviews

Great performance by the actors and a good insight in Dirchs private life.
23 August 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

A good film with wonderful performance by the actors. I could see the person Dirch through the actor Nikolaj Lie Kaas. I had some problems by placing all the characters in the film. But it might be because of my lack of knowledge. The film is giving a great picture of what it really takes to devote your life to entertainment. What the cost could be in your private life. It also gives you insight in that amazing friendship between Dirch and Kjeld. I felt that i was brought back to the 60's and 70's. After seeing the film I feel that i have a better insight in Dirchs private life and not only the funny side that we all remember him for.
