Nikolaj Lie Kaas,
Anne (37) has given up finding a man, who will fit in to her sensible and controlled life. She has therefore decided to get inseminated with a carefully selected sperm donor. But as her hormones get the better of her she realizes that the child may come to resemble the father and possibly get his less flattering characteristics. Anne feels compelled to find the sperm donor and ensure that he is as perfect as she imagines. She begins to stalk him and slowly but surely she gets involved in his life and finds out that he is far from her idea of a perfect man. Against all odds chemistry occurs between them and Anne has to decide between being in control of her life or letting go and see what love brings.Written by
It's a harmless feel-good movie with no lasting impression or memorable highlights. Although packed with the best of intentions the movie is marred by hammy acting, a manuscript of clichés and teenager attitudes.
The actors are some of Denmarks best so the hammy acting must be attributed to inept directing by Hella Joof. Hella Joof is presumably very jolly and kind, an avid left-winger with all the correct attitudes, which comes across. It leaves room for no convincing edges, it's all stilted and awkward in the inept and politically correct way. Awkward is funny when it's convincing, this is generally embarrassing. Nicolai Lie Kaas is the master of awkward and what little actually works in this dud is due to his huge talent.
A shame about this inconsequential movie because Nicolai Lie Kaas is one of the best and likable actors in Denmark. But even the best ones are wasted effort once in a while.
