Definitely worth watching
25 September 2002 | by IslandiaSee all my reviews

A very good Danish comedy film about Thorsen (played by Dirch Passer), a small-town merchant whose life is thrown into turmoil when he innocently offers to pay for a meal for Don Olsen, a retired printer and philosopher, who is passing through the little town of Middelkøbing. Their midnight adventure with the horse is one of the funniest drinking scenes I have seen in a movie.
