Pelle is in Texas with two other Danes when he's had enough of travel; he wants to go home. His friends drive on, and a waitress suggests he stay the night in her empty bedroom. Her flatmate Veronica walks him home by way of a party; they hit it off and spend two days having fun, mostly in her bed, calling each other "Milhouse" and "Lisa." He tells stories about Denmark and Søren, his quixotic best friend. Pelle and Veronica exchange numbers; after a fatal car crash, she decides she must go to Denmark immediately. Once there, she meets Pelle's family and Søren: her lack of Danish leads to misunderstandings. What is she doing there? Can feelings of connection migrate to others? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

It might have gotten better, but it really lost me early on...
13 July 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I normally don't review films I don't completely watch but felt compelled to add a quick comment. If a film features a lead who is obnoxious, make sure he's not so obnoxious that you turn off the movie. When this film began, the three Danish friends were so obnoxious and sanctimonious that I truly hated them. During their visit to Texas, they spent their time being boorish jerks--making fun of everything. And, the lead was worse because he announced that he's going back to Denmark because they place sucks.

I travel a lot--far, far more than the average person. I've been to countries where I've heard terrible things about the locals and found them all to be extremely nice. In fact, that can be said about everywhere you go--everywhere. So, after only about 10 minutes, I just turned it off because it created a main character that was simply awful- -and so I didn't care about his romance or change of heart. I just wanted him to go home and shut up.
