This movie sucks
13 January 2002 | by (Odense, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I lied in the headline: This is not even a movie. How can a bunch of great actors be part of this. I am a great fan of danish movies but this one is an exception. Is has a complete lack of talent and is so f...... predictable og boring. On a scale from 1 to 10 I will give it 'minus one' !!
