Synopsis by Mark Deming
Four people struggle with their sexual needs and their desire to be loved in this offbeat drama from Danish filmmaker Mikkel Munch-Fals. Anna (Mille Hoffmeyer Lehfeldt) 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 (Sebastian Jessen) 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 (Henrik Prip) 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 (Bodil Jorgensen) feels increasingly isolated and lonely after the death of her husband and leaving her job. Smukke Mennesker (aka Nothing's All Bad) received its U.S. premiere at the American Film Institute's 2010 AFI Fest.
