Reel Film Reviews
Rating: 2/4 -- It's OK for a film to be as confused as its main character. But when said character is a homosexual man who may be falling in love with the wife of his partner's brother, you have to pity the film.
Rating: 3.5/5 -- The film has plenty of wicked social jokes you needn't be Danish to get.
Rating: 2/4 -- The promise of that opening line never really gets fulfilled. Full Review
Globe and Mail
Jacob and Jorgen are a gay couple who have been living together for several years. One night, Jacob decides to finally propose to his boyfriend, and Jorgen gleefully accepts. But then something unexpected happens--while at a party, Jorgen shares a kiss with a woman. The kiss arouses new feelings in him and, unfortunately, that woman is Caroline--Jacob's sister-in-law. The matter only becomes more complicated as Jorgen's interaction with Caroline doesn't stop at a kiss. Forced to choose between Jacob and Caroline, the only conclusion that Jorgen can reach is that he's completely confused. This offbeat Danish romantic was directed and co-written by Hella Joof.
