Horse on Holiday

Denmark, 1959 (MIFF 1960, Programme 17)

Director: Astrid Henning-Jensen

The land of Hans Anderson's fairy tales is the Denmark you will meet in this film, but it is inspired by a driver in the Copenhagen of today. A milkman takes his horse and milkcart on a holiday trip round Denmark. On their way they are joined by an American girl and the three of them see Denmark together.
