Storyline

Karl, an old age pensioner, is busy chasing after an amnesic old screen legend. Julia, Karl's granddaughter, is torn between a mediocre bank manager and a wild sailor, and tells them both she is pregnant, but is she really? Steingerdur, Julia's mother, has a wild crush on a preacher who has a serious drinking problem, and ends up with a dead stripper in his jacuzzi. The characters cross each other as the film progresses, until the three interwoven strands of the story finally come together in an explosive and hilarious crescendo full of surprises.

Christian hypocrisy-Again?
12 May 2000 | by scottcarSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the division of this movie into three loosely related storylines. I really enjoyed the first two storylines. They were concise windows into the human condition. One can't help but feel sympathetic for the grandpa foolishly pursuing a relationship which seems doomed to discord.

Unfortunately, the last storyline really spoiled the movie for me. Aren't we all tired of seeing movies about hypocritical pastors and Christians? The constant harping on this as if it were funny or innovative bores me to death. In addition, the movie portrays a church service as pure group-think crowd hysteria and pastor worship. I suppose there are a few churches like this, but I think people are tired of seeing such ignorant, insulting, and ham-handed "social commentary" about the Church. If you want to tell others how much you hate God or the Church, write a letter to the editor, don't ask us to watch your movie for entertainment.
