Vi er allesammen tossede (1959)

A comedy of a man's Kafkaesque experience with the Danish welfare system starting with the IRS, the traffic police thinking he's drunk because he's seeing elephants (he drove into one earlier) and finally from jail to a mental hospital.

Storyline

After a gruesome meeting with the tax authorities Alex Alexander takes a drive in the countryside to calm down. While driving, he accidentally runs into an elephant from a circus. When he is stopped by the police and tells them about the elephant they think he is crazy. He is committed to an asylum by the very authorities his taxes are funding. The doctor tries to convince him that the elephants were not really there, but he gets more help from manic fellow patient Knudsen who makes him realize that everybody in the world is crazy in some way.

This film features extraordinary funny actors and an interesting way of representing reality
18 April 2001 | by ostemadSee all my reviews

I like this film because it features the Kellerdirk bros., a famous pair of comedians back in the fifties. The acting is as good as could possibly be expected of the funniest men in the country. The extraordinary joins forces with the familiar and brings this film to a metaphysical plane, where you get an entire new perspective on the world.
