One of the most fascinating aspects of this movie is its age. The Danish middle-class society of 1936 seems quite distant and almost a bit exotic to a modern day viewer. The humour however, is timeless and offers a few laughs in a harmless non-provocative manner.
The story revolves around a Danish man and his young wife, her friend who is a feminist author and the author's slightly overweight cousin. After a quarrel, the young wife decides to go on a trip with her friend and her friend's cousin, to get back at her husband. The husband desperately tries to find her, aided by a strange friend, while constantly evading the aggressive mother-in-law.
I recommend this to anyone interested in cultural/historical aspects of the mid-1930's, presented with a bit of humour and some romance.
