The details


Morten Piil (1 March 1943 – 22 March 2018) was a Danish writer and film critic. He received a Bodil Honorary Award in 2002 for his "long-standing contribution to Danish film literature".

Piil was a film critic at Berlingske Tidende 1962-67, and has since then been at Dagbladet Information where he has also written about literature and rock music. He was a film consultant at the Danish Film Institute 1975-77, and 1968-96 consultant for DR's film department.

Piil has written several reference works on Danish cinema. His three books published on Gyldendal, Danske filmskuespillere ("Danish film actors") (2001), a monograph on 525 actors active in the period 1930-2001, Danske filminstruktører ("Danish filmmakers") (2005), detailing 120 Danish film directors active between 1930 and 2005, and Gyldendals danske filmguide ("Gyldendals Danish film guide") (2008), a description of 1200 Danish feature films — virtually every major film release from 1930 to 2008, poses with a total volume of approximately 1,800 pages the most comprehensive survey of Danish film and the main figures behind it.

In 2003, Information published Film på hjernen: 40 års bedste biografoplevelser a 664-page selection of his film criticism from the last 40 years.
