Suddenly this film has taken on bizarre topicality. And this is great fun. Two passionate eccentrics decide to send the first Dane into space so set about building their rocket. The create Copenhagen Suborbitals and start building and testing.  Fascinating for its engineering but more so to see how two friends break apart under the pressure of the project. At the heart of the film is Peter Madsen, who in August sank his own submarine and then was arrested for the murder of journalist Kim Wall. Were the seeds of this tragedy sown on the the rocket project?  An even more remarkable film in the light of current events.
