| Not really an original plot
A young man is persuaded by an extraordinary character to quit his boring life after discovering his girlfriend in the act with another man and after getting fired from his job. They both decide to quit for Spain and start a restaurant. What ensues is a quite enjoyable little Swedish/Danish road movie. The acting is quite convincing from the entire cast, especially Tuva Novotny (from the excellent Swedish movie Jalla! Jalla!) and the always superb Ghita Nørby. There is a sadness to the story that is quite interesting, but this does not carry all the way to the end. The plot is not very original, despite the title, and the developments in the movie are quite predictable. Well, there is a nice little twist to it that you may or may not pick up on. Not enough to give it higher than a six rating though.
