The truth about men
Mads (Lindhardt) is in his mid-thirties, with a steady relationship and a new house in the suburbs, when he’s confronted by his teen self and a lot of lost dreams. Realising he’s unhappy, he turns his back to it all. There follows a turbulent time, many lessons learned, and an end with no real conclusion. Trying to be both comedy and drama, with one of the most humorous opening sequences ever, this film promises a lot, but fails to deliver – or maybe the truth about men is just confusing?
