Hotelier Helge feiert seinen 60. Geburtstag. Die ganze Familie, Freunde und Verwandte reisen an, um in dem schönen Landhotel den Festtag zu begehen. Aber wie so oft bei Familienfesten ist es hinter den Kulissen alles andere als idyllisch. Doch das soll die grosse Party nicht stören.

"In Denmark. Karsten, in his early thirties, and Peter, live on the edge. One is out on parole and has to report back to prison regularly. The other is an epileptic. One day, Karsten learns that he is the father of a 12-year-old girl, Louise. They connect the first time they meet. When Louise tells him that her stepfather beats her, Karsten and Peter decide to take her with them and run away to Sweden. Here, they will catch up with old acquaintances, Eva and Pernille, who are expecting them. They may even see a moose, Karsten's childhood dream ... But neither Louise's stepfather nor the police see things that way and the chase is on."--Www.blaqout.com

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Ein weltabgewandter alter Schriftsteller hilft einem Basketball spielenden Jugendlichen aus der Bronx bei seinen literarischen Ambitionen. Treffliche Darsteller sichern der Handlung die emotionale Aufmerksamkeit, ohne dass der Film freilich über eine gut gemeinte Lektion in idealistischer Mitmenschlichkeit hinauskommt.
