An entertaining if not probable story
25 June 2000 | by ankerdortheSee all my reviews

The script is based on english novel placing incident on Channel Islands. Transferred to danish island doesn't make it more plausible, but it's quite entertaining as it goes along. Notable for using german and english actors playing national character and for giving danish comedian Dirch Passer one of all too rare serious parts. He demonstrates more depth than he is usually allowed and his eminent skill to show emotions by very limited use of mimicry - a skill that was later sadly overshadowed by his being typecasted as a loud wild gesticulating clown.
