1962. A young generation rebels against the Establishment. Peace activist Eik Skaløe meets Iben and falls head over heels in love, but Iben refuses to commit herself to one man only. Desperate, Eik tries to win her over by transforming from poet to writer, nomad, junkie and eventually lead singer in the destined-to-become-legendary band STEPPEULVENE.Written by
Itsi Bitsi ("Steppeulven" original title) is the story of the rise and demise of Danish Musician Eik Skaløe. The movie does a fair job capturing what life was like for the youth of the 60's. Sex, drugs and music is the setting for this story. Unfortunately, having been released in 2014, Americans are finally aware of the movie's existence. The reason for this is Actress Marie Tourell Søderberg. Soderberg attracts a specific audience from her beauty and sexual attraction. She does fill the element of eye candy as well as the muse for Eik Skaloe. If you were to eliminate her from the movie, Itsi Bitsi, sadly, would have a much smaller audience. The movie is artistically breath taking and appealing to fans of the genre. At sometimes, the movie is hard to watch with its real (in your face) subject matters. Still, the exit of the nudity and sex scenes would erase any huge audience. Having these elements in the story are a saving grace and gives hope to telling the story of a forgotten Artist by the name of Eik Skaloe.
