Storyline

As the citizens of a secluded Danish town gradually lose their trust in one another, the sight of a naked man in the early morning hours sets off an unsettling wave of paranoia. Now, as a dedicated group of inhabitants set out to uncover the naked man's identity and re-establish their sense of community, they suddenly begin to realize that in assisting their neighbors they are simultaneously and inadvertently bettering themselves as well.

Loved this film
1 May 2008 | by vbaadhSee all my reviews

We just saw this film at the San Francisco Film Festival, and it was wonderful..charming, intimate, funny, genuine, a real successful ensemble piece with a little mystery and sex for good measure. Worth going to see, for everyone. We had awful seats, in the second row, and still enjoyed the film, although I can't recommend sitting so close for your eyes switching back and forth between the subtitles and the full screen. But that wasn't the fault of the film, more ours for a late start and assuming it wouldn't be a full house. Wrong! And, isn't Danish a weird language? Often in a foreign film one can sort of follow the language and the text and can find a rhythm of them going together, but that doesn't work that way with Danish. Overall, a very fun film that I'd love to see again and I highly recommend it.
