Storyline

Director Lone Scherfig teams with screenwriter Niels Hausgaard to tell the comedic tale of a troubled small town, and the brave few who made it their mission to keep the community together. As the citizens of a secluded Danish town gradually loose their trust in one and other, the sight of a naked man walking through town in the early hours of the morning sets off an unsettling wave of paranoia. Only when they find the naked man will the townspeople find the strength needed to move beyond this strange emotional state. Now, as a dedicated few set out to uncover the naked man's identity and re-establish their sense of community, they suddenly begin to realize that in assisting their neighbors they are simultaneously and inadvertently bettering themselves as well.

Trivia

The film was maligned by most Danish critics. Director Lone Scherfig has said that she wishes she had allowed the film to be more experimental rather than trying to even out its rough parts. See more »

Loved this film
1 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We just saw this film at the San Francisco Film Festival, and it was wonderful..charming, intimate, funny, genuine, a real successful ensemble piece with a little mystery and sex for good measure. Worth going to see, for everyone. We had awful seats, in the second row, and still enjoyed the film, although I can't recommend sitting so close for your eyes switching back and forth between the subtitles and the full screen. But that wasn't the fault of the film, more ours for a late start and assuming it wouldn't be a full house. Wrong! And, isn't Danish a weird language? Often in a foreign film one can sort of follow the language and the text and can find a rhythm of them going together, but that doesn't work that way with Danish. Overall, a very fun film that I'd love to see again and I highly recommend it.
