The basis for this film was a play by satirist Soya called 'Efter'. In this you find different variations of the kind of Danes, who willingly or unwillingly came to deal with German troops during the five year Second World War occupation. You have the architect, who did not have to draw building projects for the Nazis but still did and you have his wife, who fell in love with a German officer during the last months of the war, and you have his daughter, who fell in love with a saboteur. You also have the collaborating entrepreneur, who despise the saboteurs who brought him to justice. The dramatic nerve might have strengthened, if Johan Jacobsen had concentrated on fewer threads and made the architect a focus point of attention. Yet the critical tone and harsh criticism from Soya is maintained, and it bears witness that it is conceived not long after the war with emotions still well remembered.
