Edition 2000
106' - 1999 - Comedy, Romance - Dialogue: Danish
Director: Susanne Bier Composer: Søren Hyldgaard, Jesper Winge Leisner With: Sidse Babett Knudsen, Niels Olsen, Søs Egelind
A big hit in its native Denmark, this feel-good romantic comedy is about sex, children, marriage, and infidelity. The film focuses on two married couples. Sus and her Italian husband Sonny are debating whether or not to have a child; he's eager to have one while she waffles. Meanwhile, Niller and Lizzie decide to adopt a baby girl from Africa. When Niller and Sus meet for the first time, sparks fly, but nothing ultimately happens. Later, though, a pregnant Sus dumps Sonny after learning of his philandering, and her thoughts once again return to Niller. (Jonathan Crow)
