The new substitute teacher in a small Danish town is not exactly what you would expect. Outwardly charming, she doesn’t however quite cut it the kids, who eventually discover the truth: she’s an alien from outer space. The only problem is: try to convince the parents, for they have succumbed to the charms of this beautiful blonde with the reassuring smile, a smile that has conquered the heart of Jesper, the father of one of her pupils. The director of the famous Nightwatch brings us this spicy comedy with a delicious dose of cynical humour. Paptrika Steen (Festen) is irresistible in this film where the heroes are the children and as to be expected, the parents are blocked by their Cartesian certitudes.
