Of this film, Marguerite Engberg writes: "In terms of both form and content, it is inferior to the films offered by foreign companies, so it was not hard to understand that Ole Olsen wanted a new artistic director." Viggo Larsen had directed nearly all the fiction films made by Nordisk until this point, but he soon left for a successful career as actor-director in Germany.
