85' - 1969 - Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: Danish
Director: Lene Grønlykke, Sven Grønlykke Composer: Patrick Gowers With: Jesper Klein, Paul Huttel, Inge Baaring
Carl-Henning is a young man working as an apprentice on a dairy farm in the Danish marshland. When he isn't working, he tinkers on a disabled car and dreams of a young girl who is a local student. After a few too many beers one night, he steals some money from the till at work. He is caught by the foreman, who beats the young man. Carl-Henning defends himself and knocks the man down a flight of stairs. Convinced he has murdered the man, Carl runs away and joins up with a traveling carnival. Although the foreman has only a slight bump on the head and all is forgiven, Carl never receives word he is welcome to return and begins a series of adventures that take him far beyond the farm. (Dan Pavlides)
