It is no wonder when looking for inspiration naming a Danish film award 'Bodil' that people mention Bodil Ipsen and Bodil Kjer. They are both in this well executed movie, Kjer in front of the camera and Ipsen as a director behind it together with talented photographer Valdemar Christiansen. Adding Mogens Wieth as an insecure pianist seeking psychoanalyst help from Gull-may Norin things cannot go wrong, and you only wish Bodil Ipsen had used her obvious directing talent more often. Mogens Wieth was regarded as an actor having international potential, and he actually made it to the Old Vic in London, but unfortunately he died during rehearsals. Bodil Kjer was trusted to be able to perform a similar international career, but she chose to stay in Denmark, where he had an even more successful career within the theater. A character putting things in place in this film is Petrine Sonne. She was a very fine somewhat overlooked supporting actor, but somehow she always steal the scene the times she appear on the screen.
