Nikolaj Lie Kaas,
One of the best danish movies in never times - if you can handle it.
This movie is not your average action movie or love story. It's a movie about how far out some people can go - and not even realizing it.
I liked this movie a lot. It is filled with hints about how to behave and be human, for as we experience in this movie, a lot of people have forgotten all the essentials of life. They just life their lives, without wondering about anything. As the title says, they all need "time to change". Humour is an important part of this movie, and it really performs great, when it tries to bring a smile to your face. There will be times where you laugh, and times where you are sad. Just like in real life.
The characters are so far out, but that is all part of a larger plan to show the viewers of the movie, just how wrong some people live their lives. Luckily, this film does not feature a sweet Hollywood ending. Most of the characters change into something better in the end, or at least they find out the way to do it.
An excellent movie. It does, however, sometimes go a bit too far. But can you tell us what we do wrong, without crossing the edge of our own ethics? I don't think so.
