This is a satirical movie by the effective humorist filmmaker Helle Ryslinge, who had already established her style in 'Flamberede hjerter' with much acclaim. The male leading part, Lasse, is a pompous egocentric liar, and probably since the director is a woman, there are no forgiving points to his touchy performance. Maybe the director has to come to terms with some personal discomfort showing us this uncompromising unsympathetic character. Lasse shows a highly questionable jealousness to his partner's creative success, and it only gets worse as the plot progresses. Furthermore the director manages to make her female character thoroughly convincing, no question helped along by the fact that she herself is a woman. The ensemble of strange original characters in the surroundings add an almost Fellini like dimension to the sordid affair. Women can indeed be funny, in case you had any doubt.
