Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Raul Judkins (2021-04-06)

For your query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, for instance, gives out only 4 absolutely matching links. At least one is complete nonsense, another leads to a overview of Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, the last - to your entry in LiveJournal together with the wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the 4th with a certain forum to the niche'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and Some see anything about humor directly. The picture is symptomatic, right?

In other words, if the descendants from the Vikings have humor, it's very peculiar. Most certainly not the Russian folk "three ha-ha" and not perhaps the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and nearby the Russian soul.

Now, we have to do not forget the point that the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'on the suggestion and under the strict guidance from the well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier from the proudly attached prefix'von ', which in itself is funny if have proper picture 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 mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the setting of any black backdrop, complacently not to mention transferred his efforts on the comedy genre, as the only real virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, checking "fresh" Trier, will understand that they have no a feeling of humor. Or maybe the Dane has not got it. "Which is more often than not," we say to them in consolation.

The plot put in at home: the director of an certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most essential boss" in the wild, who isn't going to appear in nature, who is here to your Danish kingdom to check on his own small business, for an average fee. Everything.

Sixty minutes and forty minutes of screen time "the key boss" climbs into funny troubles on the boltological nature, moving into conflicts and pretty much close relations with the workplace employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), using an ex-girlfriend, with an Icelander, with a business ... 4x mcdougal himself intervenes from the events, 123movies while using confident voice of the creator "exposing" the comedy for the viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws on the genre's existence.

Normally, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" needs to be WANTED to see. I needed to, and it had become funny to me. Not at all times, she didn't tear her tummies, but you can find plenty of truly funny situations. And the typical atmosphere of the original absurdity is rather successfully based on the image, whose originality is born, apparently, to the very Automavision, designed by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. Often down the middle of the frame we have a doorway, then some type of computer monitor, then only half with the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that the camera lives their own life, regardless of characters. And this is funny.

To convey that the picture is minimalistic is always to say nothing! In "Boss" there are a form of hi-tech with the cinema: white smooth walls, office furniture - completely straight lines and standard colors, equipment for your office, judging by way of the disposition from the frame, playing the title role, faces and figures of characters.

It is see-through making use of this sort of ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts on the characters within the film and what they assert (to an inferior extent, what they are doing). To "keep" the interest and attention of the population, you will need to PLAY! And perhaps they are playing.

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

An appealing fact would be the presence inside casting with the director of the heavyweight, affectionately accepted at that time "Angels of your Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson within the role of a profitable business partner, or a potential buyer of this whole office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) and intensely undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of the girls, perhaps, I must praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, who will be still remembered by me to the role on the hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend in the character John Cusack in Stephen Frears'"High Fidelity", along with a good game in "Dogme-95" No. 3 - "Mifune's Last Song" ... Excellent madama. P-ara could be where she was required to - would've settled in Hollywood with scores of royalties.

As opposed to conclusions.

The movie is funny and original, and not free of an affordable level of boredom. For a comedy, pure water is just not drawn, but quite watchable, or else at 2 am. I wouldn't 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 would like to fuss and then determine how cinematic geniuses get it done - you might be welcome! That way.
