Pardon us for living

Hans Kristensen, Denmark, 1980

85 min.DK/Feature

Partners Hans Kristensen (director) and Hans Hansen (script) foreswore their edgy social realism comedy style to dive head first into wacko farcial story of cousins Aage and Viggo in general revolt against generally everything. The filmmakers are obviously inspired by Chaplin as well as by their uniquely offbeat-talented lead players, Tommy Kenter and Jesper Christensen.

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.
