Storyline

Long Story Short is the story of Ellen and her friends, all in their late thirties/early forties, and their more or less self-inflicted complications of love and longing for romantic redemption. The story is a summary of three years of love-related highs and lows for the group of friends told through eight chapters, each of them set at a party: a New Year's Eve, a house warming, a Midsummer's Eve, a wedding, a surprise party, a naming ceremony, an anniversary and a round birthday. It is an ensemble story about a group of people who struggle with the conception of the perfect relationship and are bound to re-evaluate their take on what true love is.

Finally a danish movie worth watching
21 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

This movies describes the ups and downs for a group of friends in their different love life relationships displayed through 8 different party get togethers. Trine Dyrholm (Love is all you need) shines as always, this time playing a lesbian who face life bitter sweat realities when getting twins while living in a guy relationship. Also Mille Lehfeldt (Flammen & Citronen) stands out in the movie with her caracter Ellen - a confused, but loving "spinster", who dont know how and when to commit in a relationship - and when not. Mille Lehfeldt, no doubt has her skills as an actor from her mother, Kirsten Lehfeldt (Flamberede Hjerter). All my credit to the director, May el-Toukhy for making a movie, both fun, interessting and not least very intertaining.
