A really good movie
30 August 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The film gives an insight into two of the newer Denmark history's most strange and important people. The film is well described without being too corny or too boring. The actors play perfectly into their roles, so you do not pay attention to that it is not the persons in the movie. You will recognize many of the scenes and the lines from the danish tabloids of the time.

We were a small group that was in the cinema to see it, we were a group of different age and gender, and we amused, along with the rest of cinema.

It is a clear glimpse worth, even if you are too young to have experienced Spies and Glistrup alive.
