Uninspired & unrealistic
28 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie merges several unique things; lack of story, very poor acting and some of the worst clichés ever seen in any Danish flick. The plot in this movie is highly implausible. The movie might be meant as a family film for parents to watch alongside with their children, but it seems as though neither of them seems to benefit from it.

It seems that director Lone Scherfig should have consulted actual individuals in the current situation, instead of just doing a daydreaming show about such a rather humourless subject. I spent one night watching it on TV and will not recommend for any other to do the same.
