Meet Nynne, the danish Bridget Jones - without the weight-problem... All other problems, financial and love related, sprinkled with totally embarrassing moments and clumsy moves... are present. Sounds familiar?! It's not without reason, Nynne has been compared to Bridget Jones... but then again; I loved Bridget, and I love Nynne! She's warm, independent, doesn't know how to cook, well-dressed, well employed, a typical single girl with guy-problems, funny, clumsy, dumb yet smart and lovable! What's not to love...?? This is a chick-flick though... You are hereby warned! Mille Dinesen makes a great film-debut as Nynne, and I hope we'll see more of her in the future.
I enjoyed this movie a lot. I watched it in danish with English subtitles and still got all of the jokes, so little dialogue is lost in the translation. This story follows a woman named Nynne who was dumped by her boyfriend while she was expecting him to propose. She then sets out to try and forget him by going out with other guys, who end up to be crazy, and by drowning her pain with shopping and food. This movie has a lot of laughs and heart warming scenes, but its not a great work or anything, and it very predictable. See this movie if you get the chance to, the actor of nynne is very good. This has a lot of adult material in it, and shouldn't be watched by kids at all.
Nynne (Mille Dinesen) is a 30-something reporter, fussy and prone to
embarrassing herself. When she is dumped by her boyfriend Henrik (Claes
Bang), she decides to find a new, better man but the search for Mr.
Right is a long and hard project, as neither a weird stalker-ish guy
Poul Erik Ø (Ole Lemmeke) nor a handsome TV chef Daniel (Jimmy
Jørgensen) seems to be suitable for her in the long run. Luckily her
friends are there to support her, especially her kind but handsome
blind neighbour Martin (Lars Kaalund).
The obvious comparisons between Nynne and the Bridget Jones movies are mostly justified, as both make use of voice-over narration and have the protagonist herself analyze her situation in a comically frustrated manner. The ingredients for a typical chick-flick are all there: philosophizing with girlfriends, wondering if Mr. Right even exists, changing clothes a lot and badmouthing ex-boyfriends. Even so, a lot of the jokes are raunchier than in many American movies and the characters are likable, particularly the blind Martin, so the movie certainly isn't worse than most romantic comedies out there.
Even though Nynne doesn't bring anything new or highly imaginative to the rom-com genre, it's entertaining enough for what it is. Fans of Bridget Jones and other man-hunting comedies should enjoy it alright, so check it out if you're into this type of cinema.
