Since the failure of his small business, Victor has become a household tyrant, constantly complaining and criticising his long-suffering family. The saintly forbearance of his wife Ida seems only to drive Victor to ever more vindictive acts of tyranny. Finally Victor's old nanny, watching his behaviour with increasing fury, takes drastic action. With an enchanting performance from Astrid Holm at its centre, this is a carefully observed comedy of manners, tackling issues of domestic inequality which are still relevant today. Meanwhile the wonderful Mathilde Nielsen as Nanny Mads ensures a rich vein of humour runs through this emotional and deeply affecting film.
