Dark movie of the best kind...
6 January 1999 | by GyldmarkSee all my reviews

It's one of Denmark's proudest productions ever. It stars Ib Schønberg as the executive, who fires his worker (Poul Reichhardt). The worker fights to stay away from alcholism, with problems at home, while the executive slowly gets more and more addicted to alcoholism himself, with problems at every level. Very strong performances, especially by Ib Schønberg, and a very dark, but suitable score by Sven Gyldmark.
