And Who But I Should Be

Denmark, 1970 (MIFF 1971, Programme 5)

Director: Jørgen Roos

Joan is a semi-professional go-go girl: people like to watch her and she likes to be watched. Does her dancing express her joie de vivre? Or do we read meanings into her dancing? Into the film? But does it matter? She is very pretty anyway.
