Shall we dance first?

Annette Mari Olsen, Denmark, 1979

93 min.DK/FeatureYouth films

Trying to spark jealousy in her friend Peter, Susanne, 16, makes a big show of casting come-hither looks in the direction of a 40-year-old man. The man, essentially a nice guy, unfortunately takes her seriously and proceeds to practically rape her. She gets pregnant, but all ends well. Annette Olsen's film is cast in the social realism mold with a keen eye for middle class manners and morals.

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.
