Dark crime with brilliant acting and score
22 December 1999 | by GyldmarkSee all my reviews

This is a third Danish movie from the 1950's, showing a darker side of human nature. The others being Café Paradis (1950) about alcoholism, and Farlig Ungdom (1953) about youth crime. This one shows crime, in the environment of homo-sexuality. We follow young Anton, brilliantly played by Ib Mossin, arriving to Copenhagen from the Danish countryside. He's looking for a decent job, but gets involved in a triangle gang, who tricks older men (who likes younger men) for money. Bundfald means deposit, directly translated. And Anton has a really hard time, getting up from that "bottomless hole", he's in. Very dark film, and talented played. And Sven Gyldmark's strolling score, really deserved the recognition with a Bodil statuette, as well as the directing.
