Ann-Mari Max Hansen,
"Hærværk" by Tom Kristensen has always been a favorite book of mine, but I have always avoided this film because I thought it would be an anti-climax to watch. The book is about a literary critic who discovers the dark and destructive sides of himself - and drinks himself senseless in a vain attempt to reach the bottom of his soul and all social criteria. This doesn't seem to be a very good foundation for a movie. Furthermore it is made in 1977, and the seventies is not a golden era of danish films to say the least. After seeing it I must admit I thought it was pretty good. This mainly because of the actors Ole Ernst and Poul Bundgaard, who delivers some fine performances - Poul Bundgaard, as "Den evige Kjær" - especially. It also recreates the atmospheres of Copenhagen in the thirties - unemployment, jazz and constant rumours of revolution. 7/10
