Like Fahrenheit 451 it was a coincidence that I found this one at my local library. It's a remarkable danish film from 1950, do not let the year fool you, that illuminates the problems of alcoholism at that time where we follow two persons. A low-end worker and a production manager, which soon to take over the post as director of the same company, where both have to face the consequences of their addictions.
Different destinies that go up and down while the wives only can stand at sideline and cry for each sip snaps the men drink and what they have to stand model for after 32 standard drinks or more. Great photographed in black and white with the usual known actors, but now in unsympathetic roles, like Ib Schønberg is just absolutely fantastic.
