Incredibly dull and pointless movie about a botched kidnapping
21 December 2018 | by KnatLouieSee all my reviews

Basic plot: The woman Ulla (Ann-Mari Max Hansen) plays the lead in this film, and she is stuck in a bad relationship with her dominating husband Claus (Henning Jensen), who has an obvious affair with Laila (Helle Merete Sørensen), a woman from work, and he doesn't hide the fact. Ulla, on the other hand, has an affair on her own, with the rebellious mechanic, Allan (Jørn Faurschou), who is living with his frivolous girlfriend Anette (Ulla Koppel). Together, the trio hooks up with one of Allan's friends, John (Jens Okking), and they seek to get revenge over Claus and his pal, Direktør Ebbesen (Holger Juul Hansen), by kidnapping him and seeking ransom (or something) later. On the poster Allan and Ulla aims a gun at something, while looking quite scared, which indicates some sort of intense gun-battle, but in the movie, it turns out, they're just shooting at empty bottles for practice! Then they both suddenly decide to take off their underpants and make spontaneous love in the field - and just throw the gun away! Oh, the 70s!

Summary: I tried really hard to follow the plot of this film, but it was soooo slow-moving, and all the characters incredibly uninteresting and boring, so just about the only thing that could keep me slightly interested was to see how Denmark looked in the old days (there's a brief scene where Allan gets chased around town, and ends up underground at Nørreport Station, which has now completely transformed in present-day Copenhagen). It was also slightly interesting to see some of these actors at this time of their careers, like the ones beforementioned, and Anne Marie Helger (small bit part as a singer), Erno Müller (Ib the garage owner), Birgitte Federspiel (Anna), Henry Jessen (Pistol-Leo), and many others.

But the story was generally really hard to follow, and seemed extremely illogical, right up to the point of the very abrupt (and laughably pretentious) ending, which made me laugh out loud, because it was so silly - I wonder what reactions the audience had in the theatres at the time, I'm sure it wasn't very positive!

Final rating: 2/10 or 1½/6.
