Ladies on the rocks

Christian Braad Thomsen, Denmark, 1983

100 min.DK/Feature

A comedy directed by Christian Braad Thomsen from a script by himself and the film's two leading ladies, Helle Ryslinge and Anne Marie Helger. This twosome tour the sticks with a cabaret that takes establishment views on women to the cleaners with a vengeance. Privately, both have left male relationships behind, but they do miss 'em! At tour's end, they have come fairly comfortably to terms.

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. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
