    A simple yet quite engrossing tale from Denmark. Some aspects of the plot do not seem to be fully developed and it's a far from original story but it is delivered in a solid manner.

    I haven't seen a bad Danish film yet. Moving and with understated performances, it matches the class realism of Ken Loach.

    Easiest one of the best danish movies of all time. No one could play this part as well as Jesper Christensen. All feelings occur, and if they don't, there's something WRONG with you!

    Jesper Christensens bedste film, og den bedste af Per Flys film om de tre sociale klasser i Danmark. En både morsom, rørende og tragisk fortælling om et liv der rammer bunden. Sublimt skuespil og en god historie hvor ulykkelige menneskers liv vikles ind i hinanden så man rigtigt ofrstår hvad venskab og familie er for noget. Jeg tror, det er den bedste danske film overhovedet!

    Shows how life can be, and can be changed in no time. Not a candy sweet story, but a social realistic description of life on the dark side with alcohol and unimployment. Gret acting by Jesper Christensen as Kaj

    Første og efter min egen mening, bedste film i Per Fly's trilogi. Vi følger Kaj's selvvalgte nedtur blandt samfundets "mindre heldige". Flot præstation af Jesper Christensen og medrivende historie, som minder os alle om, at alle ansigter har en historie bag sig.
