A love story with dark threads of madness, this 2003 feature is surprisingly lighthearted, as Denmark's Natasha Arthy, who got her start directing kids' films, taps the inner child of her adult characters. At first the only cloud over the impending nuptials of spirited Katrine (Sidse Babett Knudsen) is her jilted and clinically depressed sister Mette (Lotte Andersen), but when Mette's vagabond lover Thomsen (Bjorn Kjellman) arrives on Katrine's doorstep following a two-year romp through Kenya, the bride herself becomes unhinged. Arthy embraces the Dogma 95 manifesto with savvy, keeping emotions raw through her peripatetic handheld camera and introducing witty musical numbers by conjuring a pop trio out of Mette's delusions. In Danish with subtitles. 91 min.
