Film Description

A comedy of domestic matters in which Victor is a failed businessman who takes out his frustrations on his wife, only later learning to appreciate her after she leaves him to the less than tender mercies of housekeeper Mads. Proto-feminist in some ways yet never a polemic, this is a charming character piece that reveals a lighter side to Dreyer. It's beautifully photographed too with hardly a wasted frame in the film.
