The great day on the beach

Stellan Olsson, Denmark, 1991

99 min.DK/Feature

A working class housing project in Copenhagen during the 1930s Depression seen through the nostalgia-tinged glasses of a now adult Gustav Adolf. He had been six at the time and had been looking forward to the day at the beach so extravagantly planned by his worshipped father. Off they go, a Fellinesque assembly of family and friends. But sea and sun doesn't happen to be Dad's true element.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
