Comedian Dirch Passer was one of Denmark's most popular stars. The audiences loved his films and comedy sketches, but what did they know about his private life? Martin P. Zandvliet's biopic of Passer goes back to the 1960s and reveals Passer's intense loneliness concealed by his fame, and his obsessive, self-destructive desire to gain respect from the critics. Like most comedians, Dirch Passer tries to define himself as something other than a crowd-pleasing funny guy, but even his non-comic adaptation of Steinbeck's 'Of Mice and Men' causes the audience to laugh. This impressive film tells the story of fame on one side, and of the well-protected privacy of a broken and insecure man on the other.
