Oh, to Be on the Bandwagon!

Henning Carlsen, Denmark, 1972

96 min.DK/Feature

Life and the world seen through the slight haze of the seedy Ostrich Café. Meet Sven, the butcher who dreams of an operatic career; window-cleaner Ib, who has eyes only for Caja; the waitress Søren, the head-waiter; and Lasse, who tickles the ivories of the worn-down piano. The café's proprietor makes everybody's life a hassle, so the five friends constantly toy with the idea of opening their own joint.

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.
