Wilbur ha intentado suicidarse pero todavía no ha tenido éxito. A pesar de que posee un magnetismo especial, sobre todo con las mujeres, su ingenio y su atractivo no logran disimular su pesimismo. Wilbur está tan desilusionado de la vida que no encuentra ningún motivo para seguir viviendo. Justamente lo contrario a lo que le sucede a su hermano Harbour, un optimista incurable para quien el hecho de ocuparse de la felicidad de Wilbur es su principal cometido en esta vida. Tras un nuevo intento de suicidio Harbour convence a Wilbur para que se traslade a vivir con él al apartamento que hay tras la librería. Harbour piensa que una novia podría ayudar a Wilbur a mejorar y superarse, y esta misma idea es también defendida por un cínico psicólogo del hospital, Horst, y por la enfermera jefe Moira que cree que tal vez ella podría ser la afortunada. Sin embargo sus esperanzas no se cumplen y en lugar de Wilbur es Harbour el que encuentra el amor en una tímida y hermosa madre soltera, Alice, trabaja como limpiadora de noche en el hospital donde recoge los libros que dejan los pacientes, para luego venderlos en la librería
Smukke dreng Pretty boy ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in Danish and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nick is 13 years old, fatherless, and weary of living with a mother whose lifestyle takes precedence over her maternal role. He longs for a father, and following the example of a friend, flees to Copenhagen. Nick has a variety of experiences there: a romance with Ralph, an older man (until his girlfriend returns to town); a brief stint with a gang of petty thieves, from whence he moves on to working for their fence; a stint in a commune, and the acquisition of his own girlfriend, Rene. The film is an occasionally bizarre combination of coming-of-age story, a scathing portrayal of callous youthful violence and hedonism, and heavy-handed tragic morality play
