A poet moves to a laid-back community quite different from life in Copenhagen. Different characters live in strange "buildings". The land developer/owner decides to bulldoze the community. Will they find a peaceful solution?
6 Danish human interest stories based on 6 newspaper ads in 1962: chest, typewriter, small apartment, baby carriage, employment for couple, room for rent and the 7th story on how the journalist met his love via "Dress for sale".
This is a great movie. From start to finish it manages to entertain its audience with action, great actors/actresses, witty punchlines, songs and a striking stylistic beauty! I mean every word. The decor is priceless and the timing of editing! no wonder since Anker Sørensen the director is also a master editor! And consider the fact that this movie premiered in Denmark in 1961, I repeat 1961!! Under the skin of everything in this movie lies the cold war, there is a very understated seriousness to this movie. One could discuss it is a very naive and lighthearted approach to that problem? But that aside still a great movie of its time! even ahead of its time in many aspects. Typical danish fun to watch, sweet to the tooth kind of deal.Worth your time!
