Cute and simple...
23 May 2001 | by (Monterrey, Mexico) – See all my reviews

This film is just a little entertaining movie about family relationships (you know: father-son, mother-son, divorce and siblings kind of deals).

What´s enjoyable about it: the character of Lasse. Mainly because the plot moves around him you get to really like the young actor´s performance.

Unfortunately, I saw it in Spanish, which deforms / mutilates / invalids / distorts / blocks part of the cast´s work. I would´ve like to hear it in Danish.

Anyway, not a big spectacle, not the greatest movie of the year, but a nice entertaining little movie.
