sorry for the mistakes
Fourth episode of "Sengekantsfilm" or "Bedside films" if you prefer,
with a tantalizing idea. The government decides to build a highway that
passes through a small village. The inhabitants protest and block the
works. The government sends an official to deal with the city council,
which is made up of women, who try to get him into a compromising
situation. In short, they try to seduce him.
An idea that could be taken up and adapted to an infinite number of
situations today, even to play down a little. An idea that, however, in
this film, is not developed as in other episodes of the series, because
"Bedside Highway" is a film, light, not very sexy, almost a family
John Hilbard the director, doesn’t work with Ole Søltoft
who takes a break, promoting Søren Strømberg, well-known
Søltoft shoulder, to male lead role. On the female side there is
certainly the beautiful Birte Tove, who, as mentioned, is in a more
restrained role than usual.
After a good start, "Motorvej på sengekanten" or "Bedside
Highway", settles on boring situations that the slight increase in the
pace of the second part cannot reverse.
The best aspect of this 1972 film is the music of Ole Høyer who
composes a sound commentary between pop and easy listening that saves
the viewer from sleep. And falling asleep on the highway, as we know,
is not the best.
