Hannah is 18 and she has just moved away from home, planning a life on her own. She meets Jens, who pretends to be a teacher and says that he likes her poems. There are other friends as well like Edin from Bosnia and Andreas, an anti-racist skinhead. But strange things start to happen. Hannah receives crank phone calls in the middle of the night. She has an uneasy feeling that somebody is watching her. Who and why? Is it somebody she knows? Hannah finds out that Jens is not a teacher and that Jens is not even his real name. What does he want from Hannah? Things start to look increasingly suspicious when Hannah bumps into "Jens" in Copenhagen... Written by

This story of a 17-year old poet, vegan and above all loner has its share of faults. The major fault is the script. Tove Edfeldt is in all the scenes and she is not a capable actress enough to carry the movie herself. Her character Hannah is a goody two shoes who loves leaving her poetry in corner shops, won't get a driver's license and who prefers vegan coffee drinks and I can't help feel a bit nauseated by this self appointed world savior.
Perhaps the director Olofson are trying to say something profound about TV reality shows and their impact but the whole idea is simply far fetched. And although Tove Edfeldt has a lot of acting experience her lines are platitudes. She is talented and I look forward to seeing more of her in the future, with a script that will do her justice.
Apart from this, the supporting cast are mostly unknown to me and I get a feeling of amateur night, e.g. Hannah's two friends at school. But I noticed Mathias Rust replaying his role from Show Me Love (1998) as a guy showing off his cellphone.
