Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This Danish drama shows the suffering of the three flawed participants in an unfortunate love-triangle. The ungainly but physically powerful Bent (Benny Hansen) is a driven, obsessed man full of self-hatred. He claims to love his wife Eva (Ann-Mari Max Hansen) but physically abuses her. She is in love with Bent's gentle, alcoholic, Peter (Otto Brandenburg). Peter returns her feelings, but he's too weak-willed to help her, or to deal with his alcoholism. The tensions among the trio escalate to a surprising conclusion.
