Very touching..
13 May 2003 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

A very touching film about three old woman, living in a retirement home, wanting to experience life for the first time - and *spoiler* as you find out, even the first time for one of them. Three of Danmark's grand old ladies (or legends for a better word..) join up and play the leads. I didn't expect much to begin with, but I must admit it left me sitting with a lump in my throat by the end.. I definately recommend this film..
