Info on Strange Danish Film?

Postby mlepage » Sat Oct 22, 2005 11:40 pm

I'm looking for info on a film I saw: title, director, anything.

I saw it in the early 1990s on Canada's public station TVO's program Film International. It was a Scandinavian film, I'm pretty sure Danish, maybe The Netherlands (I don't think it was Sweden or Finland).

I only saw the second half and I may be mis-remembering details, but here goes.

It was very strange, like a blend of Kafka and Monty Python. Some guy was trapped in an institution of some form, perhaps a mental hospital. He went around, cannonballs fell from the sky, people played tennis. At one point he was chased by a stuffed animal tied to his leg, wrestling with it.

At one point he found his glasses and things seemed clearer, then they broke and everything went strange again. I think he killed himself in the end.

Does this seem familiar to anyone? I'd love to see the entire film, but I don't remember its title or director.

Hi mlepage,

Nice to have you on the board.
Unfortunately, it seems like no one has a clue ...

No clue whatsoever, but would love to see this, as it sounds very interesting. Was it a short film?
Come on guys, somebody must know it!
