Storyline

Nikolaj and Julie are a couple in their early thirties, married and with a baby that they both find infinitely adorable. As workloads and unfulfilled expectations mount, their feelings towards each other are not always equally sympathetic in nature. Joining them in their Copenhagen lives are friends Frank and Karina, a married couple who direct their everyday lives according to strict rules, as well as actress-with-money-problems Søs and playboyish Philip, who enjoys his single-life freedom. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

Streets were empty in Denmark...
6 June 2003 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Funnily enough this isn't what I personally would call great art..however it has "it" which makes it relevant to almost anyone, at least any Dane. Its portraiting the life of a couple, Nicolaj & Julie, and their very daily-life problems, it hardly could be shown in a better way since exactly the daily-life is the kind of life most anyone can recognize. No fancy jobs, cars or luxury but simple and pure life as liven by most people in Denmark 2002/2003.

It's never boring and you never totally know what will happen:as well as it has it moments of utter love and happiness we're also shown angst and sadness. Themes, to mention a few, include: love, seperation, parenthood,infidelity, desire i.e. whatever is part of most peoples lives of today - of course on a more or less frequent basis.

Last but not least there's plenty of humour in the series too and when shown (it has now summer 2003 a "holiday") the streets were empty as we've only seen a few times before (e.g. when Rejseholdet and Matador were on TV) and surely the coffeebreak subject on the following day was Nicolaj & Julie.

A cosy (hyggelig) series that could "risk" to become a rather important part of danish tv history and absolutely worthwhile viewing.
