Local Danish color decorates a basic “Bridget Jones”-style plot in breezy chick flick “Nynne.” Yarn about the romantic missteps of title’s ditsy, shopoholic heroine (sexy newcomer Mille Dinesen) scored boffo biz domestically after autumn 2005 bow, partly thanks to the popularity of the newspaper column-turned-novel on which it was based. However, its pretty legs won’t carry it far beyond neighboring Scandi territories.
After being dumped by her b.f. Henrik (Claes Bang), office girl Nynne (Dinesen) gets back in the game after a major bout of retail therapy and a pep talk from her handsome best friend Martin (Lars Kaalund), a blind man who’d be perfect for her if only he didn’t have a g.f. (Lene Maria Christensen). The courseof true love runs choppy as Nynne dallies with kinky accountant Poul Erik (Ole Lemmeke), and then with more promising prospect, TV chef Daniel (Jimmy Jorgensen). Experienced helmer Jonas Elmer whips up the froth well but takes few risks. Too many shopping montages fill out the running time, suggesting lucrative product placement deals. Dinesen, with her bedroom eyes and good comic timing, reps a real find and could travel far.
