Review of Gula kliniken (1942)

Moving picture, 114 minutes

Seen in 2023.

Doctor Jörn, gynaecologist, is an old-fashioned moralist. He helps his patients with money and berates them for seeking to abort.

A stiff and ugly movie. The romances are cringe-inducing and the dialogue is stilted throughout, sometimes to the point of unintentional comedy. It seems to be a propaganda vehicle for social conservatives who knew perfectly well that they had fallen behind the times and needed fiction to decorate their arguments. Bonus points for showing the ignorance of a naturopath though.
