A Danish classic
5 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This movie is really a classic from the early 80's in Denmark. The fact that most of the actors in the movie are in fact not real actors makes it even more authentic.

In the later years, it seems like the movie has sinked into oblivion. Nevertheless, "Midt om natten" (the original Danish title) should be a must in every history lesson about the differences in the Danish society in that period.
