Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Marcela Bennett (2021-04-07)

For any query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, for instance, allocates only 4 absolutely matching links. One of those is done nonsense, another leads to a report on Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, your third - towards the entry in LiveJournal using the wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the fourth to the certain forum to this issue'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and Some see anything about humor directly. The image is symptomatic, right?

In brief, in the event the descendants with the Vikings have humor, it is rather peculiar. Not really the Russian folk "three ha-ha" and 123 movies never even the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and close to the Russian soul.

At this stage, we should do not forget the belief that the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'in the suggestion and beneath the strict guidance from the well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier on the proudly attached prefix'von ', which in is funny if have a perception of ​​some facts about the director's biography and the previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films off imaginable and inconceivable genres, beginning from mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the historical past of your black backdrop, complacently as well as transferred his efforts for the comedy genre, as the one virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, checking out the "fresh" Trier, will understand they may have no feeling of humor. Or perhaps the Dane has not got it. "And that is more probable," 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 significant boss" as the name indicated, who doesn't happens to nature, who has come towards Danish kingdom to check his own family based business, for an average fee. Everything.

1 hour and forty minutes of screen time "the principle boss" is put in funny troubles of any boltological nature, moving into conflicts and about close relations with a cubicle employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), with the ex-girlfriend, by having an Icelander, with a company ... 4 times mcdougal himself intervenes from the events, with all the confident voice of the creator "exposing" the comedy towards viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws of your genre's existence.

Usually, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" should be WANTED to see. I desired to, and that it was funny to me. Not all the time, she didn't tear her tummies, but there are ample truly funny situations. And the overall atmosphere of the very first absurdity is incredibly successfully held by the photo, whose originality is born, apparently, to the actual Automavision, invented by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. In many cases in the midst of the frame you will find there's doorway, then your personal computer monitor, then only half of the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that your camera lives its life, in spite of the characters. And this is funny.

To talk about that the picture is minimalistic should be to say nothing! In "Boss" we come across a kind of hi-tech through the cinema: white smooth walls, office furniture - completely straight lines and standard colors, equipment for your office, judging through the disposition within the frame, playing the title role, faces and figures of characters.

It is clear making use of a very ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts to your characters inside film and what they are saying (to a lower extent, what they are doing). To "keep" the interest and attention of anyone, you 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 great in the performance of just such guys, causing sympathy and slight annoyance at the identical time.

A unique fact is the presence inside the casting of the director in the heavyweight, affectionately accepted back then "Angels on the Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson inside role of an enterprise partner, and also 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 women, perhaps, I have to praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, who's going to be still remembered by me for any role in the hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend on 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 is where she were required to - can have settled in Hollywood with a lot of royalties.

Rather than conclusions.

The film is funny and original, although not devoid of a reasonable level of boredom. Over a comedy, pure water just isn't 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 do believe, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, barely noticeable humor. Anyone who would like to fuss and discover how cinematic geniuses undertake it - you might be welcome! That way.
