sikke et fnis
6 June 1999 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Maybe this film is not the greatest danish movie ever made, but it sure is funny. Around the cinema people was laughing at all times, when they once in a while got hit by something they recognised. And then once in a while there was a one liner, that made the whole cinema laugh. When you leave the cinema, you can't help it - you're happy and you believe in love, and it's capability to make everything right. Cliche? yes but isn't lovely once in a while to believe, that somethings in the world, can make all the wrongs to rights?

I haven't heard a danish film being discussed and laughed at among friends and work companions, as this movie. Not even the dogme-movies!
