A Danish Hitchcock-alike thriller
24 March 2000 | by GyldmarkSee all my reviews

This is a really overlooked thriller from the 1950's Copenhagen. Good thrillers from Denmark are quite rare, and this on reminds of a Hitchcock-stylish movie: A thriller with humor, great lines and a little romantic story on the side, to make the movie varied and interesting. It's mostly set in a cab environment, where we follow some cab drivers in Copenhagen, especially the lead actor Jacob (Lau Lauritzen - also director), who's married to Else (brilliant acted by Lisbeth Movin). Her ex-husband Eigil (Poul Reichhardt in one of his rare parts as bad guys) is committed as a psychopath in an institution. She has nightmares about him, and he manages to escape from the institution, to look her up. Gunnar Lauring steals the show, in every scene he is in, with some unforgettable lines. Paul Hagen and Bodil Steen are also contributing to the humor and romance in the film. Sven Gyldmark also wrote a big and varied score for this film, really worth to re-record for a cd-release.
