Storyline

You don't choose your family. You choose your friends. Vegas is the story of Thomas, Marianne and Terje - three teenagers with nowhere to go. After witnessing his mother being beaten up, Thomas is sent to a young people's refuge. No one will tell him where his brother is, and Thomas vows to find him. At the refuge, he meets Marianne, who is always screwing up, and Terje, who seems like he's from another planet altogether. The three of them find they share a common dream, and together they embark on a journey of love, hate and trust.No one ends up where they planned, but everyone finds a home. Written by Anonymous

A somewhat misleading title, with a surprisingly good movie
16 February 2010 | by rudiedirkxSee all my reviews

Not many 'drama' movies like this I like. Probably because most (common) movies these days are American, and Americans always have a way of making movies... dramatic. This one though was easy to watch, believable AND (for some people important) easy to relate to, even when having grown up in a perfect family. The predictable parts of this movie (because there are a few) are the structural parts, not the actual content, which makes it all the better. It's still full of semi-exciting (not bad in this case), catching, surprising moments. Together they make the whole thing enjoyable every second.

Maybe because it's European, maybe because it's not American, maybe the director, maybe even the story, but this Drama movie pulled me in at the very start and only let me go at the very end. In one very simple word: brilliant.

Like I said: I don't watch many of these, so I'm definitely not a connaisseur, but I know what I do and don't like and this one I liked a lot!
