One of the best Danish crime movies from the 1950's
9 February 2000 | by GyldmarkSee all my reviews

This is one of the best Danish crime movies from the 1950's. A wonderful dark collaboration between Lau Lauritzen, jr. and Johannes Allen. It's about young Egon (Ib Mossin), who ends up with some experienced criminals, and can't get out to get a better life. He has spent much time in child care centers, and youth prison. Some of his equals gets a regular life, and only his girlfriend Ruth wants him out of the criminal life. The film has a great thoughtful ending. Notice especially Ib Mossin's powerful acting, along with Birgitte Bruun's remarkable debut as the intelligent girl, that shows a dumber attitude. She is far away from her part as 'Søs' in Far til Fire (1953) that same year. Sven Gyldmark's score also needs mentioning in short: Brilliant score.
