When their son, Esben, moves out, Kjeld and Vibeke decide to relocate to a smaller home.

Kjeld furnishes the apartment the way it was furnished back then, and for a while the two relive their sweet days of youth.

What did I just watch?
24 June 2019 | by brensweeSee all my reviews

This may be in the top 5 of my "what the hell was that" films.

Not sure what the writers were under the influence of when this was being developed but it was such a weird narrative. I'm not sure what the point was really! This is too "all over the place" for my liking.

If you like your movies to make no sense, this might be for you.
