Chronic Innocence Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This flat tale of teen innocence lost is based on a 1958 novel by Klaus Rifbjerg and features, aside from middle-class manners, Tore ([[Performer~P130344~Thomas Algren~thomasalgren]]) -- a popular young high-school stud, his devoted buddy Janus ([[Performer~P148347~Allan Olsen~allanolsen]]), his girlfriend Helle ([[Performer~P131815~Simone Bendix~simonebendix]]), and Helle's mother Mrs. Jundersen ([[Performer~P156891~Susse Wold~sussewold]]). Helle has consistently refused any sexual advances made by Tore, and since a sub-text of the plot seems to say that young teen men must have sex or else, Tore is seduced by Helle's mother. Meanwhile, Janus does not know about Helle's stance on her own virtue and finds a fast-and-loose young woman to initiate him into the wonders of sex. The effect of Mrs. Jundersen's indiscretion, however, is more than anyone could have expected. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
