Denmark | 2012 | Mads Matthiesen
An imposing but painfully shy 38-year-old Danish bodybuilder (Kim Kold) who lives at home with his mom and has never experienced love travels to Thailand to find a bride. This sweet, disarming film is one of the year’s most pleasant (and acclaimed) surprises. As the man of steel with a heart of cotton candy, Kim Kold “gives what may be the performance of the year” (Time Out Film Guide ).
