They're busy preparing for a child adoption, only one event will have a huge impact on both their lives just as the newly adopted girl shows up from Burkina Fasu. At the same time Niller falls head-over-heels in love with Sus.Written by
Truly appealing and funny romantic comedy from Susanne Bier with a star-making performance by Sidse Babett-Knudsen in the lead, Niels Olsen in his most appealing role to date and great support from Lars Kaalund, Sofie Gråbøl, Søs Egelind and Paprika Steen. Too bad that Sonny (aka Andrea) the Italian guy is such a caricature, but that´s a minor quibble for this feel-good movie which also happens to be beautifully photographed (especially when compared to the Dogme 95 films). The soundtrack was almost as big a hit as the movie. *** (of ****)
