Definately not without humour..
3 April 2004 | by filmfreak-5See all my reviews

This is a quite warped little piece about a turkish immigrant living in Denmark, who at a TV show wins the chance to get her biggest dream ever come true.

It is one of the first films written by Kim Fupz Aakeson, who later on became one of Danish films most popular writers, and the story is definately not without humor but it also brings up a few vital subjects, such as prejudice and ignorance towards people of another origin. Like said earlier, it is done with humour but even to a point where you really grab for your forehead when confronted with the stupidity of the TV host, played by Andrea Vagn Jensen (wonderfully played, I might add..)

This is a must-see for anyone with a sense of grotesque humour!

6/10
