Based on Danish newspaper Politiken's extremely popular column 'The Diary of Nynne' and the bestselling novel by the same name, we encounter Nynne in the never ending modern inferno of consumption. The life of Nynne is based on GUCCI bags and Chanel products, carpaccio and countless visits to cafés, loose relationships with men who screams 'good luck!' when they cume, unused memberships to the local gym and a lenient relationship with mixing champagne, white wine, red wine, cognac, gin, tequila and beer. It goes with out saying: Nynne has yet to experience her Kodak moment. But that doesn't throw her - or her cash credit - off balance.Written by
The studio wanted someone famous in the title role as Nynne, but Jonas Elmer disagreed. He thought many people would have different views on Nynne's look, and therefore decided to cast an unknown actress. The role went to Mille Dinesen, this is her first feature film. See more »

Nynne (Mille Dinesen) is a 30-something reporter, fussy and prone to embarrassing herself. When she is dumped by her boyfriend Henrik (Claes Bang), she decides to find a new, better man but the search for Mr. Right is a long and hard project, as neither a weird stalker-ish guy Poul Erik Ø (Ole Lemmeke) nor a handsome TV chef Daniel (Jimmy Jørgensen) seems to be suitable for her in the long run. Luckily her friends are there to support her, especially her kind but handsome blind neighbour Martin (Lars Kaalund).
The obvious comparisons between Nynne and the Bridget Jones movies are mostly justified, as both make use of voice-over narration and have the protagonist herself analyze her situation in a comically frustrated manner. The ingredients for a typical chick-flick are all there: philosophizing with girlfriends, wondering if Mr. Right even exists, changing clothes a lot and badmouthing ex-boyfriends. Even so, a lot of the jokes are raunchier than in many American movies and the characters are likable, particularly the blind Martin, so the movie certainly isn't worse than most romantic comedies out there.
Even though Nynne doesn't bring anything new or highly imaginative to the rom-com genre, it's entertaining enough for what it is. Fans of Bridget Jones and other man-hunting comedies should enjoy it alright, so check it out if you're into this type of cinema.
