Sinful Scandinavia Festival: Ung Kærlighed & Jeg, En Elsker
Husets Biograf
Presale unavailable

Welcome to the first of 4 nights celebrating the concept of “Scandinavian Sin” which got its global breakthrough 50 years ago when in 1969 Denmark abolished movie censorship. (all 7 films in this series are screened on 35mm!) Sweden too contributed much to this era and features heavily in this series, but tonight we go all in for two local items and show a pair of early Danish films (In Danish – no subtitles) that each in their own tentative way marked the beginning of something new. Both are quite innocent and barely hinted at the decadent times to come.

*RESERVATIONS can be made via husetsbio.reservation@mail.dk.

18:00 = CAFÉ AREA & TICKET COUNTER opens / We have free (unnumbered) seating / Please remember we only accept cash and Mobile Pay / Ticket price: 60 kr. per film or 60 kr. for both films.

19:00 = UNG KÆRLIGHED, (AKA “YOUNG LOVE”) 1958, 74min, directed by André Rodriguez, 35mm / (DK dialogue, no subs.)/ Young Eva and Peter face many challenges as they try to build a life together, not least when Eva gets an illegal abortion and is left to fend for herself. It´s fitting that we start our series with a relatively innocent “youth picture” that marks a time before Danish open-mindedness became a global brand.

21:00 = JEG, EN ELSKER, (“I, A LOVER”) 1966, 90 min., directed by Börje Nyberg, 35mm /(Dk dialogue – no subs) / We are still in an innocent early phase with this playful ode to voyeurism that today can be appreciated for its camp stylings, kitchy 60s sets, effective mood music and the subtle performance of Jørgen Ryg who plays an average schmuck adrift in a (fantasy) world of naked women. Look but don’t touch, boys!
