Storyline

Lars Hansen is in a job training program. He finds a potential job at a print shop, but his paperwork gets mixed up with an El Hassan. He is scheduled for a Danish class, since he's apparently an immigrant, but is unable to get the mixup fixed. When he learns that the new (and attractive) teacher, Ida, will have the class canceled and lose her job if El Hassan doesn't show up, he dyes his hair and puts on a false moustache to pose as El Hassan. He tries wooing her as Lars, but when she learns El Hassan might lose a job at the print shop to Lars, she won't have anything more to do with him. So instead, he befriends her as El Hassan. And that's just a few of the mixups. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

OK short, but not really Oscar material
3 May 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I was kind of let down by this short, since it won the Oscars and all. I xpected more. But it's actually an okay short, technically well done and sometimes rather amusing. But the story is too slight, and the humour, while being nicely subdued and gentle throughout, is not consistently funny enough throughout. But it's biggest problem is it's subject matter (which ironically is the REASON it won the Oscar) Film is PC moralizing in a manner that has been done to death here in Denmark. "respect your fellow man, even though he is an immigrant", "don't be a racist pig" etc., etc. This is all very fine, but I and pretty much anyone I know, don't need to be taught that. And I doubt a single racist bigot would change his mind after seeing this movie. It doesn't exactly give any real new insight into anything really.

But all in all, it is a well-crafted, rather amusing short, but don't expect Oscar material. But then again, "A Beautiful Mind" won the gong even though it was the least deserving in the pack.
