Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Cliff Weinberg (2021-03-29)

For that query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, for instance, sends only 4 absolutely matching links. One is finished nonsense, the next results in a look at Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, the third - on the entry in LiveJournal using the wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the last to the certain forum to the topic'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and I didnrrrt see anything about humor directly. The photo is symptomatic, right?

To put it briefly, in case the descendants of the Vikings have humor, it is especially peculiar. Not the Russian folk "three ha-ha" but not even idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and at the Russian soul.

At this point, we need to remember the fact the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'with the suggestion and underneath the strict guidance on the well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier of your proudly attached prefix'von ', which in is funny if have a sense of ​​some facts in regards to the director's biography and his previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films of most imaginable and inconceivable genres, applying mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the history of a black backdrop, complacently as well as transferred his efforts to the comedy genre, as the only virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, studying the "fresh" Trier, will understand that they've no a sense humor. Or even the Dane has not got it. "Which is more probable," we tell them in consolation.

The plot is not difficult: the director of an certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most significant boss" in nature, who won't take place in nature, who is now towards Danish kingdom to check on his own company, for a reasonable fee. Everything.

A couple of hours and forty minutes of screen time "the principle boss" enters funny troubles of the boltological nature, entering into conflicts and essentially close relations with the workplace employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), having an ex-girlfriend, through an Icelander, with a company ... 4 times the author himself intervenes while in the events, together with the confident voice of your creator "exposing" the comedy towards viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws on the genre's existence.

Generally speaking, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" really should be WANTED to see. I wanted to, and that it was funny to me. Not continuously, she didn't tear her tummies, but you'll find more than enough truly funny situations. And the typical atmosphere of the main absurdity is incredibly successfully sustained by the photo, whose originality is due, apparently, to the particular Automavision, designed by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. In many cases in the heart of the frame there is a doorway, then some type of computer monitor, then only half with the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that your camera lives a unique life, in spite of the characters. And computer system courses funny.

To convey that the image is minimalistic is to say nothing! In "Boss" we percieve a kind of hi-tech in the cinema: white smooth walls, office furniture - completely straight lines and standard colors, equipment for your office, judging because of the disposition in the frame, playing the title role, faces and figures of characters.

It you can see utilizing such an ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts for the characters while in the film and what they say (to a lower extent, what they are doing). To "keep" the interest and attention of anyone, you must PLAY! And are generally playing.

One cannot but praise, of course, Jens Albinus, whose surprisingly stupid and touching face, "The leading boss" owes a very big percentage of his success. The roles of losers and bungler look good inside the performance of just such guys, causing sympathy and slight annoyance at the same time.

A motivating fact would be the presence in the casting on the director in the heavyweight, affectionately accepted at the time "Angels with the Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson inside role of an organization partner, or a potential buyer of this whole office, 123movies completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) as well as undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of the women, perhaps, I'd like to praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, who is still remembered by me with the role from the hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend with the 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 can be where she was required to - may have settled in Hollywood with an incredible number of royalties.

In lieu of conclusions.

The movie is funny and original, but not without a reasonable volume of boredom. Over a comedy, pure water is not drawn, but quite watchable, if you're not at 2 am. I would not recommend it to everyone and everyone, but fans of Trier's antics will, I think, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, barely noticeable humor. Anyone who wants to waste time and see how cinematic geniuses take action - you are welcome! That way.
