Storyline

The late 1930s. A young unemployed, unskilled worker walks through the streets of Copenhagen, sustaining himself partly on the dole and free soup-kitchen meals and partly on day-dreams. He spends time at a cemetery studying headstone inscriptions. Mild-mannered and of poetic bent, he understands little of an intellectual friend's advice and shies away from the love of a woman who shares her bed with him. Henning Carlsen's portrayal of the unemployed dreamer gave Jesper Christensen an Award for best actor. Written by Rialto Film Entertainment
