Storyline

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>

An Indie Flick with Real Emotion
4 June 2010 | by jonahnelson2See all my reviews

This film is an unexpected journey into a seemingly cliché world, which is quickly swapped for a surreal environment. First, the cast in this movie is overall very good, and they are not over-acting or somehow embellishing. Second, the plot of this movie is what makes it really stand out as opposed to other indie films.

Without giving too much away, I would describe this film as "garden state like" with less banality. The dialogue is reasonable, and fits in with the loose and realistic atmosphere of the film. If you're looking for a drama that is both painful and uplifting, you should look no further. However, there are some minor plot flaws and bad acting, but this shouldn't scare you away; this movie is a must see for any fans of true love stories.
