TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 5 April 2012
If you have seen BBC4's recent Danish acquisition Borgen - Series 1 [DVD], 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 [DVD] [2010]).
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 - BBC Series 1 [DVD] 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.
Enjoy!

As I am a fan of Nordic Noir , I got interested what Danes are doing in comedy. I was looking after actors, Sidse Babett Knudsen and Lars Brygmann whom I had seen in Borgen and Unit One , where I enjoyd their drama acting . This comedy showed me how good are danish actors in every style, just perfect ! I recommend this comedy to people who love danish movies and who have seen Borgen , Killing , Unit One, Protectors, they find familiar actors in totally different roles. Just excellent !

great to see Sidse doing comedy , this is a really fun light dark Danish comedy. She plays a depressed ex opera singer who hits her husband , he in turn is a control freak unable to bend or break any rules and driving his work mates and passengers on the ferry to take the bridge . its absurd , madcap , romantic and totally moving . A winter evening delight .

But enjoyable nevertheless. This Danish film shows totally different side to Sidse Babett Knudsen - black comedy at its best
