The Only One succeeds in doing what every comedy wants, but few succeed in - to get its audience to laugh! Much laughter is related to the high identification-factor, particularly for those who are approaching, are circling around or have just crossed the anguish-ridden thirties. What do you do if you think you have found The One and it turns out you were wrong? How do you really know if anyone is The One? These are questions the characters in Susanne Bier's latest film must face. The film centres on a few men and women and their search for happiness. For one of the couples in the film happiness means children, but as the man is sterile they have to adopt a child. The woman of another couple discovers that she is pregnant, which doesn't prevent her husband from sowing his seeds outside his own bed. He gets caught in the act, whereby the phrase ''the only one'' suddenly gets a new definition, by which life doesn't necessarily get worse- just different. Acid lines fly through the air when fights and arguments line up. The dialogue hits all the marks but this is above all an actors' film. Paprika Steen (Festen, Mifune) is, as usual, exceptional, but above all Sidse Babett Knudsen (Mifune) stands out as the hysterical and lovesick mother-to-be. Den eneste ene has won the hearts of audiences and critics alike in its native Denmark, and Susanne Bier proves with this film that Denmark has more to brag about than the Dogme-films, The Nightwatch and Lars von Trier.
