Cafeteria manager Jan (Lars Brygmann) isn't the most likable of characters. Not only has his fixation on proper procedure isolated him from his co-workers, but even Jan's shrieking wife Anna (Sidse Babett Knudsen) can't find many redeeming qualities in her severely grating spouse. One night, after hiding out in the local opera house, Jan comes home to yet another battle with his embittered bride. The following day, Jan's life takes a wholly unexpected turn when the fed-up captain of the ferry grows tired of Jan's behavior and demands that the obnoxious employee seek professional help. ...With Your Permission ( Til døden os skiller )

4.0 out of 5 stars Comedy or tragedy? 23 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film begins with the main character, played by Lars Bryggmann looking totally different from the 'Unit One' series, playing a character that John Cleese might have played, although with more subtlety. However, as the story progresses the tone changes, and at the end I found that I was close to tears. All the cast are superb, and you'll see lots of familiar faces if you watch Scandinavian films and series, It was a surprise to hear the star of 'Borgen' singing opera arias, and very well too. I'm still not sure what genre the film would be classified as, but I greatly enjoyed it after an uncertain start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Danish comedy woth a good cast 21 Jun 2012
By Mikey - Published on
If you have seen Borgen - Series 1, you'll probably love this film starring Borgen star Sidse Babett Knudsen as an opera singer, along with Borgen co-star Lars Brygmann who really is the star of the show playing the unpopular husband Jan. Jan must be one of the most detested employees around and his co-workers can't wiat to see the back of him. He is sent on a course by his ferry company boss where he meets two people with similar issues. One of these two people is played by Nicolaj Kopernikus (Vagn - The Killing - Series 1).
Sidse and Lars are excellent in Til døden os skiller as the unhappily married couple with Lars having some very good scenes as the idiot Jan in the workplace and Sidse displaying her full range of acting abilities with her shouting and singing.
Funnily enough, the ferry company where Jan works is a company that ferries passengers to and from Denmark to Sweden. In the story we see that ferry business is being lost to the Oresund Bridge mainly (as Jan's employers put it) because of Jan himself. Jan eventually seeks work as a toll collector on the Bridge and still manages to annoy the travelling public. In reality, soon after the bridge opened, ferry journeys became no more as motor vehicles and trains cross the bridge with great ease (and considerable expense) between the two countries. The Bridge is another Nordic series set around a murder on the very same bridge.
Sidse and Lars were definitely the stars of this film and makes it worthy of a rewatch sometime in the future.
