Typical extremely silly Danish 1970's farce..
3 January 2009 | by KnatLouieSee all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to find this on an excellent DVD by SAGA studios (a Sandrew/Metronome release), where it was presented in anamorphic widescreen and all that jazz, but it still fell flat to the ground, in my opinion.

The plot is as follows: The crazy old title-character Amalie (played by 1940s diva Marguerite Viby in her final screen-performance, marking her swansong) jumps into the harbor, while trying to save another old lady's life. The other woman dies, but because some random guy sitting on a bench (amusingly portrayed by the otherwise unknown Bent Stolzer) accidentally swaps their purses, everybody thinks it was Amalie who had died, and even hold her funeral while she's recuperating at the hospital, but when her roommate Alvilda (Karen Lykkehus) is about to make hard decisions about Amalie's estate, she suddenly comes back from the hospital.. and craziness ensues.

Since the death-certificate for some wacky reason cannot be changed back, Amalie is officially deemed dead, and has free reigns to do whatever she wants - because it's impossible to punish a dead person! How hilarious! Brilliant stuff! I'm afraid this movie might be the reason why Preben Kaas quit directing, and went back into the acting business again, which was a good decision. Both script-writers never wrote another movie again, fortunately.

After about 70 boring moments of otherwise decent actors (like Paul Hagen and Kirsten Walther among others) trying to be funny by overacting furiously, and the plot continually dragging on with minor futile subplots, like the two ladies trying to loot a store, but being declared surprise winners for some reason, and later trying to kidnap a naughty boy (apparently coming straight from hell), but are unable to get ransom for him, because the parents are happy to be rid of him, etc., the movie finally ends with - yet another - silly twist..

Even as Danish 1970's comedies go, this one is really scraping the bottom of the barrel - I mean, Dirch Passer isn't even in this (probably busy doing better movies, like the "Mafia"-series)! At lot of minor Danish celebrities appear in the movie, however, so if you're a fan of any of the participants, then it may be more amusing, but if you're not, then steer clear of this turkey.

3/10
