Lowkey charmer
10 May 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Quintessential Indy road-movie with a very Nordic touch. 58 year old lonely janitor, who is so shy that he barely registers get accidentally left behind on a gas-station, when his old-boys soccer team is on its way to a match in Sweden. To catch up, he gets a lift with a sweet natured delinquent and the adventure begins... The movie has a nice flow and is filled with quirky characters and wry observations about people and differences. Most of the actors are well-known danish character actors, who seems to have a lot of fun. Some of the humor do require a little knowledge of Denmark and Sweden, but it shouldn't be too difficult for anyone to relate to most of the situations. Danish superstar Tina Dico supplies the soundtrack and some really catchy songs.
