Not so interesting about nothing.
14 November 2001 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Where a danish film as "Italian for beginners" makes small people and their lives interesting "Leva Livet" (Live life) does not. We do not know why we follow these characters or what their motivation/ goal is. We are thrown from one couple to the next. The end is an awful steal from "The Usual Suspects" but without the impact. It actually took me 10 min after leaving the cinema before I even understood what the director had attempted to do. The main character who is an old fat vacuum cleaner salesman is the only character that I liked.
