A City Called Copenhagen

Denmark, 1960 (MIFF 1962)

Director: Jorgen Roos

An amusing and clever twist to the usual travel documentary. The Danish capital is seen with a happy irreverence. Tourist attractions are mentioned, but with whimsical irony, and the film presents an entertaining view of this cosmopolitan city.
