nice danish comedy
30 January 2001 | by kaurismaki1See all my reviews

A both touching and very funny danish film about a group of Danish men who takes on a drinking-trip to Poland. They drink vodka, fool around with the polish woman and behave totally crazy. In Danish reviews it has been regarded as a bad comedy, but this is not all true. It also has more subtle layers. Well known danish actor Peter Gantzler gives one of his first screen-performances in this picture, and he is really good. >
