I saw this movie in the cinema with high expectations from the general Danish media reviews. I was unfortunately disappointed. Sure the acting is good and the portrait of John Mogensen and his time comes across as believable. But I was missing the pub environment and his drinking and the self destruction that this led to. Instead we get the buying of a summerhouse and random interactions with his wife and daughter and band members.
