Storyline

This romantic comedy follows two couples in Copenhagen trying to settle down. Sus, who works in a beauty clinic, tries to live happily with her Italian husband. Soon after she tells him that she's pregnant she discovers that he's having an affair with one of her clients at the beauty clinic. She kicks him out of the apartment just as their new kitchen arrives. Niller, the kitchen installer, is a down-to-earth kind of guy who lives a childless, but otherwise happy life with Lizzie. They're busy preparing for a child adoption, only one event will have a huge impact on both their lives just as the newly adopted girl shows up from Burkina Fasu. At the same time Niller falls head-over-heels in love with Sus. Written by Eroka

Not that bad!
19 April 1999 | by Nikolaj-2See all my reviews

It seems like the only comments here are very negative. I found it rather entertaining, maybe it did not fully live up to the reviews but most of the history works. I think that both the lead characters are well played by Niels Olsen and Sidse Babett Knudsen and Lars Kaalund is great as the friend of Niller. Sofie Gråbøl made toes crumble but not because of bad play but because the character she played was so embarrassing clumbsy. But if people prefer movies like "Op på fars hat" and "kampen om den røde ko" then I come short of arguments.
