Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Graig Barlow (2021-04-06)

For the query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, for example, allocates only 4 absolutely matching links. One of them is finished nonsense, another creates a writeup 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 final to the certain forum to the subject'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and I didn't see anything about humor directly. The picture is symptomatic, right?

Simply speaking, in case the descendants on the Vikings have humor, it is quite peculiar. Certainly not the Russian folk "three ha-ha" and not even idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and near to the Russian soul.

At this stage, we have to don't forget the fact the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'at the suggestion and beneath the strict guidance in the well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier in the proudly attached prefix'von ', which in itself is funny if have a solid idea of ​​some facts with 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, beginning mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the history of your black backdrop, complacently not to mention transferred his efforts to the comedy genre, as the sole virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, looking at the "fresh" Trier, will understand they've no sense of humor. Or perhaps the Dane has no it. "Which is much more likely," we tell them in consolation.

The plot put in at home: the director of any certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most crucial boss" in nature, who isn't going to exist in nature, who originates towards Danish kingdom to check on his own family based business, for 123movies a reasonable fee. Everything.

1 hour and forty minutes of screen time "the leading boss" gets into funny troubles of a boltological nature, getting into conflicts and basically close relations with a cubicle employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), with the ex-girlfriend, through an Icelander, with a boss ... Four times the writer himself intervenes while in the events, with all the confident voice in the creator "exposing" the comedy towards the viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws on the genre's existence.

In general, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" must be WANTED to see. I needed to, and it absolutely was funny to me. Not constantly, she didn't tear her tummies, but you'll find more than enough truly funny situations. And the normal atmosphere of the very first absurdity can be quite successfully backed up by the image, whose originality is born, apparently, to ab muscles Automavision, created by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. Sometimes during the frame you will find a doorway, then your working computer monitor, then only half of the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that the camera lives a unique life, in spite of the characters. And this is also funny.

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

It is evident by using this kind of ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts to your characters within the film and what they claim (to a lesser extent, what they are doing). To "keep" a persons vision and attention of everyone, you need to PLAY! And they are generally playing.

One cannot but praise, not surprisingly, Jens Albinus, whose surprisingly stupid and touching face, "The main boss" owes a substantial number of his success. The roles of losers and bungler look good from the performance of just such guys, causing sympathy and slight annoyance at exactly the same time.

An intriguing fact would be the presence in the casting with the director on the heavyweight, affectionately accepted back then "Angels of the Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson from the role of a profitable business partner, and also a potential buyer of this entire office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) and intensely undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of the ladies, perhaps, I would like to praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, who will be still remembered by me for that role of your hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend in 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 could well be where she required to - can have settled in Hollywood with a lot of royalties.

As opposed to conclusions.

The film is funny and original, but is not without requiring a great amount of boredom. On a comedy, pure water seriously isn't drawn, but quite watchable, if you're not at 2 am. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone and everyone, but fans of Trier's antics will, I do think, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, barely noticeable humor. Anyone who would like to fuss and pay attention to how cinematic geniuses do it - that you are welcome! That way.
