Hubert, a shy and introverted graphic designer, is a complete failure when it comes to meeting women. When he falls in love with Hanna, who is recovering from a difficult breakup, he tries to impress her by mimicking his best friend, the perfect womanizer.
It breaks the ice with Hanna, but the impersonations get out of hand, with unforeseen consequences. Directed by Óskar Jónasson (Iceland, 2016).
“Óskar Jónasson (the director of Reykjavik-Rotterdam) has carefully written and created an Icelandic romantic comedy that pulls all the right strings and comes off as a very entertaining Icelandic film.”—Cinema Scandinavia
