Storyline

Well-known Danish actor Nicolas Bro reigns supreme in the role of Nicolas Bro. Bro's marriage is on the rocks, his wife Lene has grown tired of their relationship, but instead of grabbing the bull by the horns, Bro decides to save his marriage by filming a love story with him and Lene playing the lead roles - as themselves. Bro's good director friend Christoffer Boe lends him a camera and suggests that he films everything - a piece of advice that Bro takes far too literally. Bro's constant filming succeeds in driving both his friends and wife nuts, and Lene ends up moving to a secret address in Berlin. Bro's plans thus die a sudden death, but obsessed by the idea of completing his film, Bro hires Danish actress Trine Dyrholm to play his wife, Lene. Alas, nothing goes according to plan and Bro's last hope of reclaiming his lost love is to seek out Lene in Berlin. It is a journey that gradually causes Bro to come apart at the seams in his increasingly desperate attempt to register his ... Written by Alphaville Pictures Copenhagen

Realistic and disturbing.
30 April 2010 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

Accomplished actor Nicholas Bro wants to make a movie. He asks his friend and director Christopher Boe for his help, and being the good guy Boe is, he gives him a camera and the essentials to start his film. Bro's (not Boe) idea is to shoot a love-story involving himself and his wife. I forget specifics at the moment, but I think it was an attempt on his part to fix his struggling relationship. Well, it backfires, and the basis of the movie is Nicholas attempting to finish his movie, thus showing his wife how much he loves her, and ultimately getting her back. The results are nothing less than eye-opening.

This is my first peek into a Christopher Boe film and I must say I'm very impressed. I've heard he's one of the world's leading young directors and I can easily back that statement. Before I gush over Boe anymore, I do have to also commend Nicholas's performance as well. It was really something else, and almost at times, felt too realistic. Getting back to Boe, and it's related to Nicholas in a way, the reason why I was so sucked into this film was because of the realism. The ideas and writing for Bro's character hooked me in on a level that screamed real life tragedy.

What real life tragedy? What kind of tragedy? As the climax of the movie began I was almost immediately reminded of the movie, The Video Diary of Ricardo Lopez. It was a graphic, tragic and a very emotional real-life film that displayed mental problems on a level I've never seen before. I never in my life would have thought I would see a movie that would create a comparable feeling that that film gave off. But it did, and I applaud them for doing so.
