To get into character, Pilou Asbæk and Nicolas Bro regularly met during the pre-production and played table tennis - an activity enjoyed by Simon Spies and Mogens Glistrup throughout their entire friendship. See more »
The tennis scene where Simon is playing tennis with 3 girls is set to be in 1967, but the girls are wearing Nike tennis skirts. The Nike Swoosh was not a part of the Nike brand before 1971. See more »
Very few Danes don't know the two main characters, Mogens Glistrup and Simon Spies, so a movie with these two and their friendship was inevitable. That Nicolas Bro and Pilou Asbæk played these characters was a great decision! They are both great actors and captured a lot of the mannerisms of both characters, although Nicolas probably downplayed Mogens' accent.
Although Spies and Glistrup are very different, Spies being the extravagant playboy and Glistrup being the overweight nerd, they have a deep friendship that is finally tested when Glistrups creative bookkeeping threatens not only to put him in jail, but also to destroy Spies' travel-agency.
More of this movie is true than anyone not familiar with this side to danish history would believe. It should make a worthwhile watch even for people with no knowledge of danish history. Beware (or enjoy) the abundant nudity, however!
