Christopher Friis Jensen,
Follows the lives of four longing souls. Ingeborg who feels unattractive and young Jonas who is so attractive that he can literally sell some of what he's got. Anna, a young beautiful woman with a physical disability, and Anders, a tender man with a psychological disability. Four people yearning for love, four people, each hoping for a better tomorrow. Written by
Beautifully accomplished film about not-so-beautiful people
Well, the composition of the film is not apparently novel, the all major elements - direction, script and performances are so wittily and skilfully carried out that you become a viewer feeling both compassion and embarrassment. The mood and background are rather tragic, but the related events and statements make you giggle, at times involuntarily, and you realise that those crazy things and intertwines could possibly take place. Especially in smaller Western societies where official openness and actual reticence are often in deep contradiction.
All the characters are elaborated, performed well, with many small supporting roles played by known Danish actors. My most favourite were Bodil Jørgensen as Ingeborg and Sebastian Jessen as Jonas; I have seen their versatility before, and it was pleasant to acknowledge again that they are continuously good actors.
A must-see to all fond of modern Danish dramas. Even if you guess what happens next, the less than 1.5 hours pass smoothly and engagingly.
