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

Feel good film, which will leave you laughing one moment & crying the next.
19 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved this film. Although this film tackles serious issues such as coping with homosexuality, the break up of relationships, and family disputes - it is light hearted humorous, and fun. It will have you laughing one minute, and crying the next. Mads Mikkelsen plays his role fantastically. You can't help but fall in love with him, despite the fact that he is the one causing all the heartache. Troels Lyby's character tugs at your heart strings, as the 'dumped boyfriend', and you can't help but emphasise with Charlotte Munck's character. I won't give anything away in case you've not already seen the film, but these 3 play the title roles splendidly. The film is set in and around the beautiful scenery of Copenhagen. It is a brilliant film for people who are not already familiar with Copenhagen, and Copenhagen/Danish culture, to get a feel from. The soundtrack is another good reason to watch, containing some wonderful tracks from contemporary Scandinavian artists, and complementing the film wonderfully. My recommendation? Watch it.
