A few days before the wedding forces her old friend, Thomsen, suddenly. Katherine finds out that there is something wrong with Thomsen, but she gets in one way or another said the opposite, leaving a relieved and happy Thomsen, who shall personally see to it that they are both something used, something blue, something new and something borrowed here the day before the wedding. It starts with a used dog, something strange hair, no little blue pills, and it ends in Glostrup with a crazy sister who Thomsen definitely think they should borrow from the closed ward. But tomorrow there will be another day. A wedding day . Written by Dørge

Absolutely wonderful
29 August 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It's simply wonderful. Every bit of it gets to me. It's just... reality. No more, no less. It's like the most truthful and sharply realistic fantasy you could ever have. Sure - it made me laugh, but more than that, it made me just... shiver. According to the above. I don't think many people would share my reactions to this movie - but you couldn't possibly hate it, never. Unless you weren't willing to see it, and if you aren't, if you think it's nothing for you - then don't. Don't waste your time - it's worth more than that.

I love it and I always will.

Björn, you're the best, forever.
