Storyline

What is the attraction of living in a remote fishing community in northern Europe? Still, this is where 575 Thai women have settled, all married to local men. Fifteen years ago, there were almost none. But Sommai, a former sex worker from Pattaya, was there. Now, she and a group of other industrious and strong Thai women are trying to find a husband for Sommai's young niece Kaeh, who is in Denmark on a three-month tourist visa. Love on Delivery is a touching, tragic and at times humorous tale of strong, decisive women who see themselves as entrepreneurs in a globalized world rather than victims of poverty and prostitution. They make great sacrifices and take high risks when they leave their children behind and travel half way around the world to marry complete strangers.

Subjective documentary about Thai wives in Denmark
17 June 2013 | by peter07See all my reviews

I saw this on YouTube and heard it was so popular in Denmark. I found it an interesting documentary but I wish it dealt with the problems that Thai women face in Denmark. What was also ignored was the racism in that country and how the women dealt with it.

I know little about Denmark and don't particularly care for that country given the intolerance there that I hear often about (and the insistence of Danes that it's not racism), but this was nonetheless an interesting documentary.

There is a sequel as well in which the lives of Thai women in Thailand who want farang husbands are explored.
