In Italian for Beginners, Scherfig has failed at making her story and characters seem ordinary while succeeding at making a very ordinary film.

Scherfig, who has had a successful career in TV, tackles more than she can handle.

If this is the Danish idea of a good time, prospective tourists might want to consider a different destination -- some jolly country embroiled in a bloody civil war, perhaps.

[Scherfig] has made a movie that will leave you wondering about the characters' lives after the clever credits roll.

This charming but slight tale has warmth, wit and interesting characters compassionately portrayed.
