Storyline

Jacob is a young man used to getting everything he wants. For several years, he has been living in a happy homosexual partnership with Jørgen, and one night Jacob decides to pop the big question to Jørgen. Jørgen happily accepts Jacobs marriage proposal, but then something happens: Jacob falls in love with a girl, and not just any girl. The girl is Caroline, married to Jørgens younger brother Tom. Jacob's life suddenly gets very complicated, trying to figure out whether he wants to spend his life with Jørgen or Caroline. Most of all, he wants both! When Caroline gets pregnant with Jacob, matters are even more complicated. Written by Frustrator

Loved it
16 January 2006 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

While on visiting Sweden & Denmark, I bought a heap of Scandanavian movies, "En Kort en Lang" being one of them. I had no idea what the movie was about, and from the moment it started I found it utterly charming and very funny, with some unexpected twists in the plot. The acting is great and the characters were all believable. My only gripe would be with a few bad make-up decisions, especially a less convincing mustache on a supporting character and an amateurishly assembled beard on another. But these are minor problems and did not spoil the movie for me. A real fun movie with a wonderful ending you'd expect from a romantic comedy!
