Per Wennick: Prinsesse på vej

– Danskerne kan glæde sig rigtig meget til mødet med Marie Cavallier: En begavet, smuk, livsglad og varm kvinde – med humor, siger Per Wennick, og tilføjer: – Det har været en fornøjelse at arbejde med hende.

Sådan lød det i DR’s pressemateriale, … men det var ingen fornøjelse at se en lille times gabende kedelig tv-dokumentar med den unge kvinde og hendes Joachim, som hældte almindeligheder i hovedet på os, mens fotografen Lars Schou, bl.a. kendt for sit fremragende arbejde for Lars Engels, som DR fyrede for nogle år siden (“Ikke mere taber-tv”), lavede pæne “glossy” billeder fra her og der, hvor de unge nu befandt sig. 

De to dygtige tv-dokumentarister, som spildte deres talent på denne opgave, skal dog have ros for den virtuose måde de fik bragt en bifigur i fokus. Maries hund, en lille puddel, som – desværre udenfor kameraets rækkevidde – havde spist en hel skinke på størrelse med sig selv, blev klippet ind flere steder i programmet og kvikkede op ved sin spontane tilstedeværelse i billedet. Godt fanget, Lars Schou!
