According to Nikolaj Lie Kaas, one of Dirch Passers most memorable sketches, "Hoppegyngen", also depicted in the movie, was inspired by him as a child. Preben Kaas (played by Martin Buch), Nikolajs father, got the idea when he gave Nikolaj a similar toy as a gift. See more »

I went to see the Danish movie Dirch last night having heard mixed reviews ahead of my visit.
As the movie passed, it sort of 'grew' into this fascinating insight story about a great but very shy and insecure comedian who lived his life upon the expectations of others. He was simply unable to say 'No'. His insecurity incessantly made him chase the applause of the audience and his surroundings, and his shyness prevented him from gaining the security and support of close relationships.
All this affected his family life, his work, the friendship with his best friend and fellow comedian Kjeld and - not least - the quality of his all too short life.
A strong and sad but also beautiful movie with absolutely amazing performances by most actors but especially Nikolaj Lie Kaas in the role as Dirch!
