Storyline

The 38-year-old bodybuilder Dennis would really like to find true love. He has never had a girlfriend and lives alone with his mother in a suburb of Copenhagen. When his uncle marries a girl from Thailand, Dennis decides to try his own luck on a trip to Pattaya, as it seems that love is easier to find in Thailand. He knows that his mother would never accept another woman in his life, so he lies and tells her that he is going to Germany. Dennis has never been out traveling before and the hectic Pattaya is a huge cultural shock for him. The intrusive Thai girls give big bruises to Dennis' naive picture of what love should be like, and he is about to lose hope when he unexpectedly meets the Thai woman Toi. Written by SF Film

Heart warming story
14 April 2015 | by markmorse-91667See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie about a gentle giant who travels to Thailand and falls in love. The main character reminds me of myself, I too like bodybuilding and I plan to visit Pattaya in Thailand and hopefully find love with a normal girl who isn't looking for business only. This film was heart touching, a very nice story. There were some interesting characters as well as nice scenery. I recommend this film to anyone who's a fan of foreign cinema like I am. I'm now searching for some similar films which are about love and travel, preferably foreign, I'm a fan of local films too but foreign are my favourite. I really enjoyed this one. I rate it 7 out of 10.
