Lene and Sven Grønlykke unfortunately made only a couple of films, and they are fine accomplished original achievements. In this film in tinted colors true to the period it presents, a group of tough railway workers relaxes and visits the inn, where the female innkeeper, Linda falls in love with the boss of that workers' team, Thorvald, yet she becomes more emotionally attracted to the Argentinian troubadour Miquelin. The photography by Jesper Høm and Claus Loof is lively and effective with an international quality. The film presents a convincing picture of the living conditions among workers and lower class people from that time, and the love affair between the two main characters almost gets lost in the cavalcade of exotic colorful situations. Linda's sudden infatuation of a southern troubadour seems like an assertion. However, a fine group of supporting characters fill the environment with liveliness and gusto.
