Jan Priiskorn-Schmidt's best film?
22 August 2001 | by GyldmarkSee all my reviews

This is a very overlooked crime movie by Erik Balling. The murder case itself is as confusing as it should be, and the pieces only comes slowly together. Unfortunately the audience let it down in Denmark, back in 1964, demanding comedies from Balling instead. So he never made a serious crime movie again. I personally think that Jan Priiskorn-Schmidt makes one of his best performances ever seen. This 12-13 year old boy, with this hard and calm look, not influenced at all, by acting professional in front of veteran actor Poul Reichhardt. Also Helle Virkner has some good scenes in this film. 6/10 for the movie - 2 extra stars to Jan Priiskorn-Schmidt.
