Synopsis: Maybe the best thing to come out of Scandinavia during the hippie years was, in fact, the story of a radical libertarian and a hedonist capitalist. Their friendship, forged by being outsiders in a conformist country, took them through years of adulation and success, with slight detours into the welcoming arms of vilification and imprisonment. A joyride through taxation, mass travel, hookers and politics. Not feeling too constrained by historical facts, director Christoffer Boe''s story of Simon Spies and Mogens Glistrup covers just a few of their decades in a tale of warmth and humour, defiance and eccentricity.

User Reviews

A really good movie

30 August 2013 | by Dracula_dk (Denmark)
The film gives an insight into two of the newer Denmark history''s most strange and important people. The film is well described without being too corny or too boring. The actors play perfectly into their roles, so you do not pay attention to that it is not the persons in the movie. You will recognize many of the scenes and the lines from the danish tabloids of the time.

We were a small group that was in the cinema to see it, we were a group of different age and gender, and we amused, along with the rest of cinema.

It is a clear glimpse worth, even if you are too young to have experienced Spies and Glistrup alive.
