Pelle is in Texas with two other Danes when he's had enough of travel; he wants to go home. His friends drive on, and a waitress suggests he stay the night in her empty bedroom. Her flatmate Veronica walks him home by way of a party; they hit it off and spend two days having fun, mostly in her bed, calling each other "Milhouse" and "Lisa." He tells stories about Denmark and Søren, his quixotic best friend. Pelle and Veronica exchange numbers; after a fatal car crash, she decides she must go to Denmark immediately. Once there, she meets Pelle's family and Søren: her lack of Danish leads to misunderstandings. What is she doing there? Can feelings of connection migrate to others? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

hey, i'm SORRY...
20 December 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

but this film does NOT deserve anything less than an 8.0 rating... and just PLEASE take my word for it...i KNOW about storytelling. but i WILL say THIS...it took me by surprise... and then kept getting better, though the end is a bit wobbly. hence, the 8.0 rating. there were times in the movie when i felt it was going to derail... or that it had suddenly gone in the direction i was expecting it to go from the beginning...sophomoric. but i quickly began to wonder if the writer was just toying with me in that particular scene... silently saying, 'this is the type of garbage i COULD've made'. and there couldn't've been much of a budget for this movie. didn't hurt the movie one bit... i don't know much about the writer, though i think he directed, as well. i will DEFinitely be on the lookout for their future work, though...
