A mind opener

This will be one of those movies i will always think of on a daily bases. This movie opened my eyes and learned about a new mental illness that was about depression and anxiety. This movie shows that there are so many different forms of mental illnesses. A heart warming movie about acceptance and growing and over coming.

Marmite film: love it or hate it

Agreed (with another reviewer), there is a serious point to this film. I think it is that in 21st century Western society we are anxious to accommodate all sexual variations, never to judge or denounce, always to accept. As recently as 20 or 30 years ago, all Lars' friends and neighbours would likely have shunned and ostracised him as a lonely misfit who can't get a girlfriend. Now we bend over backwards (no pun intended) to accept his choice of a silicone doll for a partner, inviting her to parties, the church, and even (without wishing to spoil the story) sharing his grief when she 'dies'. Now either this will make you rage and want to throttle all these dumb liberals, or it will make you rejoice in human tolerance. Anyway fine performances from everyone and a reflective rather than an exploitative movie

Half serious attempt at depicting mental illness

It is a low budget movie and I feel it originated from the idea of doing something strange for the hell of it. With more research and more seriousness to the approach, this could have been done so much better. But I think the attempt deserves respect anyway. I like odd movies if they have some truth to them, and this one does.

If you keep the preconception that it is not meant to be funny, you will enjoy the movie more. It's not fair or right to laugh about an ill person, is it? Where the movie becomes silly and funny, that is where the movie fails.
