Dennis, a painfully shy 38-year-old bodybuilder, would really like to find true love. He has never had a girlfriend and lives alone with his mother in a suburb of Copenhagen. When his uncle marries a woman from Thailand, Dennis decides to try his own luck on a trip to Pattaya, as it seems that love is easier to find there. He knows that his mother would never accept another woman in his life, so he lies and tells her that he is going to Germany for a competition.

Not a great film, but interesting and thoughtful, nonetheless. At a slow pace, it follows quiet, but endearing Teddy, on his search for romance, while tackling some stereotypes about bodybuilding, as well as about family obligations, and romance.

A decent low budget film with honest performances by the players. I don't agree with the critics that the main actor projected so much emotion during his periods of silence. Worth watching.

I saw this movie a few weeks ago on the Sundance Channel. I found the main character Dennis, extremely endearing. The film is quiet and sweet. The romance part of the film is unusual to say the least, but I found the character development of the lead to be uplifting.

This movie portrays a side to the mail order bride issue that is not commonly covered. Socially awkward people and different perspectives on what a marriage should be.
The short story about the 16 year old and the 33 year old was just plain creepy. Age differences like that are not about love.
