Shake It All About (Danish: En kort en lang, "a short [one], a long [one]") is a 2001 Danish comedy-drama directed by Hella Joof. It was entered into the 24th Moscow International Film Festival.[1]


The film is about a gay couple, Jørgen and Jacob, who live in a happy partnership. One day Jacob asks Jørgen to marry him, and he happily accepts. But then Jacob falls in love with the woman Caroline, who happens to be married to Tom - Jørgens brother!

Jacob is torn, because he wants both Jørgen and Caroline. Jacob gets Caroline pregnant and wants to do the right thing by marrying her. Jacob's secret can stay secret for only so long. And when the news gets out, even more complications arise.
