The army of the Unemployed

75 min.DK/Documentary

Denmark in the 70's. The unemployed forming the queue and hanging about on street corners and in parks. From school straight on the dole all the while the Government buys fighter planes and factory owners move their enterprises abroad. A few of the unemployed try desperately to sell themselves, tout combs, polish cars and shoes; but those of the army can and will, no more nonsense, action now!
