This is probably one of the best Danish comedies of the 1940s and 1950s. Filmed during the war, it features a rare display of Danish crazy comedy which, for some reason, is totally absent in Danish movies from the late 1940s and onwards.
The story is all about an actor, his four ex-wives, their new husbands and a young girl who falls in love with the actor. The ex-wives makes an alliance to 'save' the young girl from their ex-husband, the new husbands makes an alliance because they think their ex-wives are having an affair with their ex-husband, and what the actor and young would-be actress are doing is a whole other matter.
The movie stars some of the finest Danish comedy actors of the 40s and 50s with Helge Kjærulff-Schmidt (husband to one of the ex-wives) as the greatest asset.
'Mine Kære Koner' is highly recommendable and way better than the countless Danish 'family comedies' of the 50s and 60s, which for some reason gets all the mention today.
