Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Janeen Ellwood (2021-03-29)


For your query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, by way of example, provides only 4 absolutely matching links. One of these is complete nonsense, the 2nd results in a article on Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, your third - towards the entry in LiveJournal while using wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the 4th into a certain forum to the topic'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and I didn't see anything about humor directly. The picture is symptomatic, right?

In brief, if your descendants of the Vikings have humor, it is rather peculiar. Definitely not the Russian folk "three ha-ha" without even the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and nearby the Russian soul.

Here, we have to keep in mind the fact that the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'in the suggestion and below the strict guidance of your well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier on the proudly attached prefix'von ', which in itself is funny if have a solid idea of ​​some facts about the director's biography and the previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films of the imaginable and inconceivable genres, beginning from mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the backdrop of an black backdrop, complacently and naturally transferred his efforts towards the comedy genre, as really the only virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, exploring the "fresh" Trier, will understand they've no a sense of humor. Or maybe the Dane doesn't always have it. "Which can be more often than not," we say to them in consolation.

The plot put in at home: the director of a certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most important boss" naturally, who does not exist in nature, who has come towards Danish kingdom to examine his own home based business, for a reasonable fee. Everything.

Sixty minutes and forty minutes of screen time "the leading boss" climbs into funny troubles of an boltological nature, coming into conflicts and basically close relations with your place of work employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), with the ex-girlfriend, having an Icelander, with a company ... 4x the writer himself intervenes inside the events, with all the confident voice with the creator "exposing" the comedy on the viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws from the genre's existence.

Usually, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" should be WANTED to see. I needed to, and it was funny to me. Not at all times, she didn't tear her tummies, but you will find adequate truly funny situations. And the overall atmosphere of the main absurdity is very successfully supported by the picture, whose originality is born, apparently, to the actual Automavision, invented by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. In many cases in the midst of the frame you will find a doorway, then a laptop monitor, then only half of the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that the camera lives its own life, whatever the characters. And this really is funny.

To say that the image is minimalistic is always to say nothing! In "Boss" we percieve some sort of hi-tech in the cinema: white smooth walls, office furniture - completely straight lines and standard colors, office equipment, 123movies judging from the disposition while in the frame, playing the title role, faces and figures of characters.

It is obvious that with such an ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts on the characters while in the film and what people say (to an inferior extent, what they are doing). To "keep" a persons vision and attention of everyone, you need to PLAY! Plus they are playing.

One cannot but praise, certainly, Jens Albinus, whose surprisingly stupid and touching face, "The primary boss" owes a huge percentage of his success. The roles of losers and bungler look wonderful within the performance of just such guys, causing sympathy and slight annoyance at the identical time.

A unique fact could be the presence from the casting with the director in the heavyweight, affectionately accepted at the moment "Angels on the Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson from the role of an organization partner, in addition to a potential buyer of this entire office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) and very undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of the ladies, perhaps, I have to praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, that's still remembered by me with the role of your hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend of your character John Cusack in Stephen Frears'"High Fidelity", including a good game in "Dogme-95" No. 3 - "Mifune's Last Song" ... Excellent madama. P-ara is where she had to - would have settled in Hollywood with millions of royalties.

As opposed to conclusions.

The film is funny and original, but not with no an affordable quantity of boredom. On the comedy, pure water isn't drawn, but quite watchable, or even at 2 am. I would not recommend it to everyone and everyone, but fans of Trier's antics will, I do believe, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, barely noticeable humor. Anyone who wants to waste time and discover how cinematic geniuses get it done - you happen to be welcome! That way.
