Eight chords

Johan Jacobsen, Denmark, 1944

108 min.DK/Feature

A grammophone record with Chopin's waltz in c minor is the item that ties together eight different destinies in this film made in Denmark during the second world war. A young man buys the record for a friend's wife with whom he has an affair. The record is sold to a music teacher. The teacher's maid brings it for a date with a captain, but forgets it in a car. The driver of the car is the illegitimate son of a supreme court judge. Via an emotionally unstable woman, the record ends up in a pharmacy. The pharmacist's neighbor steals the record and gives it to a woman, who passes it on to her maid. The record ends up with an angry waiter in a bar.

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.
