A classic
28 March 2002 | by pgs-1See all my reviews

Everything is right in this danish classic, about lost souls. Soya wrote the the novell and one of the best danish directors Johan Jacobsen make the screenplay and the direction. Two of all-time popular stars in Denmark Bodil Kjer and Poul Reichardt is great and a lot of forgetten genius actors like Karin Nellemose, Sigfred Johansen, Johannes Meyer and Maria Garland stars in this masterpiece.
