"A savagely funny jet-black comedy with a gothic bent. Set in a small Danish town, the film focuses on six characters whose weekly lives have fallen in such despair that their only source of continued happiness is a weekly Italian class they share. The plot sweetens in the latter half without betraying the characters, and without ceasing to be hilarious. "Italian For Beginners" is fresh and exciting, with a demanding, intelligent script and performances so precise, so fine that anyone who is interested in the craft of acting should see this film. Others who should see it: Any incurable romantic who can take a little salt and pepper with that sugar." - G Allen Johnson, Indiewire
