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

Reaching out and finding yourself.
21 March 2005 | by frk_dybdalSee all my reviews

"Lykkevej" would probably best be translated as the "road of happiness". A middelaged woman's world is shattered, as her husband reveals his affair with a co-worker and they separate. From being a housewife with the luxuries of a picture-perfect home and wealth, she suddenly plunges herself into a neighborhood, whose biggest issue is her new neighbor, who haven't cleaned up on his side of the pavement for 5 years. The new strange neighbor with peculiar habits intrigues her and even though people on the road talks, she makes an effort in getting to know the strange new neighbor, despite of what everyone else thinks.

This is a story about finding yourself, getting on your feet, breaking social barriers and live life, even though your scared.

Its beautiful, that's what I thought, when i saw it.
