Goofs

At one point in the film Polyhymnia mentions having heard about kissing from Venus. Since Venus is the Roman Goddess of love and the other Gods are Greek, it should be Aphrodite instead. See more »

A charming inspirer of "Xanadu"
1 July 2006 | by shkaplanSee all my reviews

The film is very Danish, although you don't have to be Danish to enjoy this. It's very much a post-war film with references to life in Europe after WWII. I saw this on Danish TV after seeing Xanadu, and realised that the American film missed the wit and the charm of the original Danish. Even when the muse's father, Zeus, comes to Earth to rescue his daughter, Zeus is portrayed with everyone's tongue firmly in their collective cheeks.

The story is about a Danish Air Force pilot who is working on a musical play and faces writer's block. Polyhymnia comes to spur him on and inspire him to complete the work.

Towards end of the film it appears to get predictable, but then at the very end an interesting and unexpected twist takes place...
