Whomever can not appreciate the sarcasm, irony and crazy humour of this film ... well, turn off the television. The rest of us, who knows Søren Fauli's way of making comedy, will undoubtedly enjoy this film from start to finish.
The way it makes fun about the feudal society, the tyranny of the church and the way peasants were abused, is just wonderful. In fact, there's a joke waiting for you around every corner. Right in the middle of it all is Count Axel with his very modern language (including the curse-words :-). When the jokes go away, the mere words that Count Axel sings over and over again are hilarious! Add to this the plethora of quality actors that appear in this film, and you have a great piece of work. I enjoyed every moment of it, and I watch this film regularly when I need a good laugh.
9/10 for this gem!
