Anything can happen and will happen in this romantic musical where four teenagers risk their feelings and dreams in the space of a single, extraordinary night. Daniel, Lina, Stefan and Therese are sixteen years old. They are the best of friends and are on their way out for the night. It is a night like any other and yet a night like no other before. When the sun rises, their lives will be forever changed. Daniel is in love with Lina, but Lina is hopelessly in love with herself and rock star Niklas Ravn. Therese is willing to offer Stefan her virginity, but Stefan would rather come out of the closet - to get closer to Daniel. But Daniel is much more interested in Therese. Written by
An experience of Joy, Sex, Shame, Laughter and Confusion
I saw this movie yesterday evening, at the last night of the Berlin Film Festival. Most movies were all immediately sold out, but this one wasn't. Of course I checked out the IMDb rating like I usually do, and a 5.6 isn't that promising.
However, a 5.6 is far from the movie's actual worth imo.
This movie is expressionistic in a way I haven't seen before. Imagine a mixture between 'Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari' and 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas', and then you're not even close. Wonderful. The music fits the film perfectly, although I thought there were too many different song in the beginning. The sets and costumes are plain brilliant. But most of all... Even though I'm not an easy laughter, this movie made me laugh continuously. Me and the rest of the audience, for I far as I could see, had a smile on our faces which lasted for the course of the movie.
You can tell that Danish people are very open-minded, especially when it comes to sexual stuff. To prevent awkward situations: I wouldn't recommend watching this movie with your 15 year old son. Even though this movie was for 14+ I believe.
If I had to describe this movie in five words: Joy, Sex, Shame, Laughter and Confusion
