MOVIE OF THE MONTH:
‘Så længe jeg lever’ is a dramatic, humorous and poetic journey through musician John Mogensen's life. The man who won the hearts of Danes with his great classics such as ‘To mennesker på en strand’, ‘Så længe Jeg Lever’ and ‘Fut i fejemøget’. The movie trails him from his childhood until his first breakthrough with Four Jacks, after which he's was all but forgotten and lost, until he made a huge comeback in 1971 with ‘Der er noget galt i Danmark’. This is a touching and beautiful lovestory about John and his wife, Ruth, and the tumultous marriage, filled with warmth, passion, beer and chaos – and above all the music, Johns true passion.
