Jeppe of the hill

Kaspar Rostrup, Denmark, 1981

107 min.DK/Feature

Norwegian-Danish playwright Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754), inspired by Molière, wrote the wryly satirical, exuberantly funny stage comedy classic on which this film is based: Jeppe, a work-worn peasant drinks to forget and believes himself to be in heaven when jesters of the manor have bathed this unconscious body, dressed him up and left him to wake up in the Baron's bed. Once there, Jeppe almost at once turns into a tyrant himself.

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.
