Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Jame Hetrick (2021-04-06)

For any query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, as an example, sends only 4 absolutely matching links. One is finished nonsense, the 2nd results in a overview of Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, the 3rd - for the entry in LiveJournal with the wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the final into a certain forum to the patient'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and I didnt see anything about humor directly. The photo is symptomatic, right?

In a nutshell, if your descendants from the Vikings have humor, it is extremely peculiar. Certainly not the Russian folk "three ha-ha" instead of maybe the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and near the Russian soul.

At this stage, we must don't forget the truth that the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'at the suggestion and below the strict guidance with the well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier in the proudly attached prefix'von ', which in is funny if have proper picture of ​​some facts with regards to the director's biography with the exceptional previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films off imaginable and inconceivable genres, starting with mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the setting of the black backdrop, complacently not to mention transferred his efforts towards comedy genre, as the one virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, looking at the "fresh" Trier, will understand they have no sensation of humor. Or even the Dane does not have it. "That is more likely," we tell them in consolation.

The plot is straightforward: the director of your certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most important boss" by nature, who doesn't take place in nature, who originates towards Danish kingdom to check on his own business, for a reasonable fee. Everything.

1 hour and forty minutes of screen time "the primary boss" goes into funny troubles on the boltological nature, entering into conflicts and approximately close relations with your place of work employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), with the ex-girlfriend, by having an Icelander, with a business ... Four times the writer himself intervenes within the events, with the confident voice of the creator "exposing" the comedy to your viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws on the genre's existence.

Usually, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" really should be WANTED to see. I desired to, and it had become funny to me. Not on a regular basis, she didn't tear her tummies, but you will discover sufficient truly funny situations. And the overall atmosphere of an original absurdity is extremely successfully sustained by the image, whose originality is due, apparently, 123movies to the particular Automavision, designed by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. Frequently in the middle of the frame there's a doorway, then your personal computer monitor, then only half from the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that the camera lives a life, in spite of the characters. And computer system courses funny.

To talk about that the picture is minimalistic is usually to say nothing! In "Boss" we percieve a form of hi-tech in the cinema: white smooth walls, office furniture - completely straight lines and standard colors, office equipment, judging with the disposition while in the frame, playing the title role, faces and figures of characters.

It is evident that with this sort of ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts to the characters in the film and what people say (to a lesser extent, what they're doing). To "keep" a person's eye and attention of the population, it's important to PLAY! Plus they are playing.

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

An appealing fact will be the presence inside the casting from the director with the heavyweight, affectionately accepted back then "Angels of the Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson from the role of a company partner, and a potential buyer of this whole office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) as well as 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 is still remembered by me to the role with the hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend from 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 required to - might have settled in Hollywood with an incredible number of royalties.

Rather than conclusions.

The film is funny and original, and not with no a reasonable number of boredom. Over a comedy, pure water will not be drawn, but quite watchable, or else at 2 am. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone and everybody, but fans of Trier's antics will, There's no doubt that, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, barely noticeable humor. Anyone who would like to waste time and then determine how cinematic geniuses practice it - you happen to be welcome! That way.
