Denmark exposed!
16 May 2007 | by WWWoyagerSee all my reviews

This film offers one of the most truthful portrayals of the mixed-up Danish attitude to sex and pornography. It was made in the sixties, which was the last gasp of Denmark as a nation of open-minded people. Hence, the film refuses to judge, and instead throws a shower of thought-provoking questions at the viewer, with young people voicing open-minded and progressive ideas while the parents react with shock and violence. Back then it looked as if the new generation would change the world for the better, and certainly it managed to overthrow some oppressive censorship laws, but alas, anyone living in Denmark today is well familiar with this country's present puritanical right-wing politics. The generation conflict in "Gift" parallels the conflict between how Danes are still perceived and how they really are. No wonder if Danes don't like watching this film. It's way too close to home.
