The Way to Mandalay
Original title: Så længe jeg lever
- 1h 50m
The story about one of Denmark's greatest musicians, John Mogensen, his success and failure throughout life as an artist, husband and father - from childhood, through his time in Four Jacks to his late success as a solo artist until his death in 1977.
I saw this movie in the cinema with high expectations from the general Danish media reviews. I was unfortunately disappointed. Sure the acting is good and the portrait of John Mogensen and his time comes across as believable. But I was missing the pub environment and his drinking and the self destruction that this led to. Instead we get the buying of a summerhouse and random interactions with his wife and daughter and band members.
