Four people struggle with their sexual needs and their desire to be loved in this offbeat drama from Danish filmmaker Mikkel Munch-Fals. Anna is a lovely woman in her early 30s; however, after a bout with breast cancer she's has a mastectomy, and with only one breast she feels disfigured and incapable of finding a man. Jonas is a man so good looking that he's constantly propositioned and has more lovers than he can count, but he still doesn't feel fulfilled. Jonas's father Anders is a nerdy, seemingly ordinary man with a humiliating secret – he's an exhibitionist who can't control his need to expose himself to strangers. And Anna's elderly mother Ingeborg feels increasingly isolated and lonely after the death of her husband and leaving her job.

IMDB

"Smukke mennesker" is being cited as the box office bomb of the year in Danish cinemas, but I was captivated by it. Its multiple story lines of connected characters and its somewhat bleak and depraved point of view have critics throwing up comparisons to this and that source of inspiration, but I found the characters and the themes of sexual identity engaging on their own.

I was particularly impressed by Sebastian Jessen in arguably the leading role as the attractive, even beautiful young man who seems to decide to spend his youth on his own, away from parents or obligations, selling sexual favours with little discrimination, but not without empathy. Mille Hoffmeyer Lehfeldt is equally daring as a school teacher who chases some kind of physical fulfillment after losing a breast to cancer surgery. Bodil Jørgensen ('Idioterne') comically retires from the company where the young boss doesn't know anything about her, then loses her husband on the same day and has absolutely nothing to do. Henrik Prip, who I have never before considered an interesting actor, makes his woman-abusing, self-hating, therapist-seeking character seem almost likable. The supporting cast make excellent contributions.

There are numerous surprising or poignant or plain funny moments, some of them cringeworthy like the meeting of the young man with the old widow - on her couch. The characters, flawed as they are, made me care. I could have done without the chapter headings, which gave the proceedings a pompous edge and seemed to slow down an otherwise well-edited film. The ending presents an absurdly coincidental chance meeting, but I was happy to see the story go there.
