Storyline

Henry has been acting the human chameleon all his life - a pale reflection of other people's expectations. One day Henry's best friend Jon talks him into opening a restaurant with him in Spain. Before leaving Henry is caught up in a maelstrom of bizarre events. In order to get control over his life Henry needs to stop being a pale copy and transform himself to the sparkling original he really is. A journey, which requires both a passport and trip into his own twisted mind. And a journey which lay bare the path to love in the most unexpected places. Written by Anonymous

Not really an original plot
3 December 2009 | by UlfSAnderssonSee all my reviews

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.
