Mads, a 34-year-old scriptwriter, goes through a crisis in life when a close friend of his has a stroke and ends up in a coma. Mads breaks up with his girlfriend for ten years and tries to find a different path in life. The movie has a meta storyline about making movies.
Interesting film that shows turning points of relationships and life itself as compared with plot points of stories and movies.
In particular, the never-ending relationship between Mads and Marie is made known. Mads is a script writer, he had plenty of dates before settling down with Marie. After a wee while of being with Marie he realizes he's not happy with his current life. They break up and then Mads' search for who knows what starts.
Mads with many girlfriends after breaking up with Marie is presented again. Ups and downs in his life and in his writing he both encounters.
This Danish film is an entertaining picture of life and characters who pass through different stages at their lives. They probably without noticing the curves depicted by their lives are exactly those plots film makers want to find and screen for others.
