Souverign
15 December 2005 | by faust1og2See all my reviews

Great film this, a danish classic. Perfect balance of poetic romance scenes, including full moon walks, swan statues, parks, moonlight sonatas, beautiful women, grumpy old uncles… everything.

Hilarious comedy from Dirch Passer, of course, but this is not solely a Passer flick. Legendary Ove Sprogøe plays Charles. Mr. charming and dead to early Ebbe Langberg is Peter, and they both want to marry Susse Wold and Ghita Nørby.

Here is also a great performance from Holger Juul Hansen whom we love so much in the series «Matador» and «Riget» (Lars von Triers «The Kingdom»).

A must see!
