Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Eleanore Ibbott (2021-04-06)

For any query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, as an example, gives you only 4 absolutely matching links. At least one is complete nonsense, your second results in a look at Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, your third - to the entry in LiveJournal together with the wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the fourth into a certain forum to this issue'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and I didnrrrt see anything about humor directly. The picture is symptomatic, right?

In brief, in the event the descendants from the Vikings have humor, it is very peculiar. Definitely not the Russian folk "three ha-ha" rather than the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and near to the Russian soul.

At this stage, we must do not forget the fact that the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'with the suggestion and beneath the strict guidance from the well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier in the proudly attached prefix'von ', which in itself is funny if have an idea of ​​some facts concerning the director's biography and his awesome previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films off imaginable and inconceivable genres, you start with mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the backdrop on the black backdrop, 123movies complacently not to mention transferred his efforts for the comedy genre, as a common virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, exploring the "fresh" Trier, will understand that they've no a sense of humor. Or perhaps the Dane has no it. "That is more often than not," we tell them in consolation.

The plot is not difficult: the director of the certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most important boss" anyway, who would not appear in nature, who has arrived to your Danish kingdom to test his own small business, for a reasonable fee. Everything.

An hour and forty minutes of screen time "the main boss" goes into funny troubles of any boltological nature, accepting conflicts and essentially close relations with work employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), having an ex-girlfriend, through an Icelander, with an employer ... 4x the writer himself intervenes inside events, with all the confident voice of the creator "exposing" the comedy to your viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws with the genre's existence.

Usually, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" really should be WANTED to see. I want to to, and it absolutely was funny to me. Not on a regular basis, she didn't tear her tummies, but you can find more than enough truly funny situations. And the general atmosphere of the initial absurdity is quite successfully supported by the picture, whose originality is due, apparently, to the Automavision, introduced by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. Sometimes down the middle of the frame you will find there's doorway, then your working computer monitor, then only half in the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that you lives a unique life, irrespective of the characters. And this can be funny.

To convey that the photo is minimalistic is usually to say nothing! In "Boss" we see a type of hi-tech through 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 see-through making use of this kind of ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts towards the characters while in the film and what they say (to less extent, what they are doing). To "keep" a persons vision and attention of everyone, you must PLAY! And they're playing.

One cannot but praise, of course, Jens Albinus, whose surprisingly stupid and touching face, "The principle boss" owes a very large portion of his success. The roles of losers and bungler look really good while in the performance of just such guys, causing sympathy and slight annoyance at a similar time.

A unique fact may be the presence from the casting in the director of your heavyweight, affectionately accepted at the time "Angels on the Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson inside role of a small business partner, together with a potential buyer of this whole office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) and undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of the girls, perhaps, I will praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, that is still remembered by me for any role of the hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend of the character John Cusack in Stephen Frears'"High Fidelity", as well as a good game in "Dogme-95" No. 3 - "Mifune's Last Song" ... Excellent madama. P-ara can be where she had to - may have settled in Hollywood with countless royalties.

Rather than conclusions.

The film is funny and original, and not lacking a good number of boredom. On the comedy, pure water will not be 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 think, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, barely noticeable humor. Anyone who wishes to fuss and then determine how cinematic geniuses take action - that you are welcome! That way.
