Storyline

When upper-class woman Sara discovers, that her husband Jan is having an affair with a younger woman, she leaves him. Now she has to take care of herself and therefore rents an old house in Valby and starts a new and more humble life. At first the situation seems a little sad, but with her unfailing good spirits Sara quickly becomes popular in the neighborhood, amongst others with the salsa-freak Sus and the cable-guy Holger. They try to get her involved in their conflict with the neighborhood's black sheep, the taxi-driver Robert, but are not successful. Sara manages to keep out of the controversies and soon her husband has to realize that Sara is doing just fine without him. Written by TheBluesBaby

I love it!
26 October 2005 | by cyberragaSee all my reviews

This is a movie that makes you feel so good. Sara is an older woman living a protected life with her wealthy husband until he tells her he has found another woman. When they divorce she gets nothing. She moves to a little house that is not well-kept. Here she has to do everything which she is definitely not used to. She has to work which she has not done in ages and her resume is not at all up to date. "Lykkevej" ("Happiness Road") is a quiet little road with people who does NOT mind their own business – except for Robert who is the black sheep of "Lykkevej" – he is a 15 year old younger man who has a lot of problems. Please try this movie out if you feel like smiling and singing for the rest of the day... ;-)
