Niels Pind og hans dreng

93 min

Talk about great!

- My place. Vodka.

- I have only got three hours.

- Me, too.

- To get to the airport?

I'd forgotten about that.

We'll think of you at work

as we lie on the beach.

Girls, come back to my place

for some vodka.

Come with me, Christian.

I can't.

You can go straight on to work.

I must be getting home.

See you.

Take care. Have fun.

See you.

Do come!

No, I need a bit of sleep.

You can sleep with me.


No. Forget I said so.





Shall we mix the alcohol

with some fresh air?

- I'm asleep.

- It's 8.30.

I should've been at work at 8!

I thought you had tabs on it.

I've got breakfast ready.

- No time for that.

- You have to eat.

- I start at 8.

- Why did you take that job?

- We could have enjoyed ourselves.

- I need the money, right?

For what?

A flat. And my motorbike license.

I'm not going to look after you

if you end up in a wheelchair.

So you say.

- You don't pay rent here.

- Mum!

- I thought you were in a hurry?

- Are you OK?

Yes... It's probably

just the bright light.


- Phone me if you need me.

- Run along. I'm fine.


See you later.


- Are you eyeing me up or what?

- No. I'm sorry I'm late.

- Late for what?

- I'm Christian from number 6.

Are you John?

- Yes?

- I'm meant to be helping you.

Oh, right, was it today?

Get yourself a cup of coffee.

Be right with you.

- Let's swap places, all right?

- Yes, of course.

It'll be hard work.

I hope they told you.

Yes. They did.

- Well, since they've hired you...

- Thanks.

- Coffee?

- Please.

You can start by sweeping up

the broken bottle in the courtyard.

Do you like it?

It's delicious.

That's nice to know.

It's from a recipe I found.

There should have been a bit of...

...coriander and ginger in it.

But they're a bit much, I find.


The janitor...

- Isn't he a bit...

- No, he's all right.

- Can you talk to each other?

- What do you mean?

You don't have much in common.

He spends the day in the yard.

Yes. And you spend

the day in an office.

Not because I want to.

If I could,

I'd have chosen differently.


I'd have gone to college.

Like you.

You could have done.

- Finished?

- Yes.

It was too rich. I shouldn't have

used cream instead of coconut milk.

- Time for Teletubbies.

- Teletubbies?


Dipsy and Po.


I'll be a bit late in tomorrow.

Can you manage?

If anyone asks, say I've gone to

the dump. Not that they will.

- No, thanks.

- A little one? Sure?

- That's a luxury lunch box.

- Mum likes doing them.

She sounds like an OK lady.

- Are you married?

- No, I am not. I am not.

Any children?


That's how it goes.

I think I'll go to bed.

I'm coming down with something.

I'll go and read for a bit.

- Hello?

- Yes?

- I'm looking for the janitor.

- He's gone to the dump.

- Do you know when he'll be back?

- No.

- Can I help you?

- Can you install a washing machine?

- Maybe. Where do you live?

- 18. 9th floor. I just moved in.



- My name's Sanne.

- Christian.

Shall we take a look?

- What did you say it was?

- A washing machine.

Oh, yes. I don't think I can do it.

We'd better wait till he gets back.

Just to be on the safe side.

I'll just have to turn my knickers

inside out then.


Oh, right!



He's amazingly good at describing

the way women's minds work.

It got fabulous reviews.

You really must read it.


- Is something wrong?

- Like what?

- You seem so distracted.

- I've got a bit of a headache.

I think I'll go out

for some fresh air.

Can I get you anything from the shop?


That's very kind of you,

but no thanks.

- I've got really fat lately.

- You're not fat.

- Don't you think so?

- No. You look great.

You don't think I look old and fat?

See you soon.

You're very early?

- Coffee, even!

- Thought I'd make a start.

We'd better put something in our

bellies first. Got to enjoy life, eh?

- Custard or jam?

- Either.

No such thing.

Custard or jam?

- Custard, then.

- OK.


"Louise, 20 years old".

I don't understand...

why they shave them

all smooth like that.

- 20 years old. You can have her.

- Thanks.

- Maybe you've already got one?

- No.

They cause nothing but trouble.

Is it hard to install

a washing machine?

- Washing machines?

- Somebody wanted some help.

- It's not our job.

- It'd only take a minute.

- Who was it?

- She's just moved into no 18.

I'll pop by her later.

- I could do it if you like.

- Have you tried it before?

- Not washing machines.

- There's always a first time.


That washing machine... If...

- You said you didn't know how.

- Maybe I do.


I did it myself.

OK. In that case...

It's probably

on the ground floor.

Yes... but now you're here you

could look at my toilet. It runs.

Yes. Of course.

- The toilet.

- Yes.

- Will you be all right on your own?

- Fine.

- I'm going to take a quick shower.

- Yes.

- I'll take care not to splash.

- OK.

I think I've fixed it.

I saw you yesterday.

- Oh?

- You were watching me.

- You mean in the basement?

- No. Last night. From outside.

You were looking up at me.

I just wanted some fresh air.

- Did you get any?

- Any what?

Fresh air?

No. There isn't much

fresh air in town.

You are sweet, did you know that?

I never thought about it.

Well, you are.

Really sweet.

Thanks your help.
