Heavy Scandinavian humor

For that query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, as an example, provides only 4 absolutely matching links. At least one is complete nonsense, another leads to a writeup on Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, another - on the entry in LiveJournal together with the wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', your fourth into a certain forum to this issue'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and I did not see anything about humor directly. The image is symptomatic, right?

In short, in the event the descendants with the Vikings have humor, it is especially peculiar. Certainly not the Russian folk "three ha-ha" and never the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and close to the Russian soul.

At this time, we should remember the point that the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'at the suggestion and within 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 concerning the director's biography and his previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films of the imaginable and inconceivable genres, applying mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the backdrop on the black backdrop, complacently not to mention transferred his efforts towards comedy genre, as the one virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, checking "fresh" Trier, will understand they have no a feeling of humor. Or the Dane doesn't need it. "And that is more often than not," we say to them in consolation.

The plot put in at home: the director of a certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most significant boss" as the name indicated, who will not appear in nature, who is now for the Danish kingdom to check on his own company, for a moderate fee. Everything.

An hour and forty minutes of screen time "the primary boss" is put in funny troubles on the boltological nature, getting into conflicts and basically close relations with any office employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), having an ex-girlfriend, with the Icelander, with an employer ... 4x mcdougal himself intervenes in the events, with all the confident voice with the creator "exposing" the comedy on the viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws on the genre's existence.

Generally speaking, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" need to be WANTED to see. I want to to, and it had been funny to me. Not all the time, she didn't tear her tummies, but you'll find sufficient truly funny situations. And the typical atmosphere of the initial absurdity is extremely successfully based on the picture, whose originality is due, apparently, to ab muscles Automavision, invented by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. Often during the frame there is a doorway, then some type of computer monitor, then only half from the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that the digital camera lives its very own life, regardless of characters. And this is also funny.

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

It is evident that with this kind of ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts to the characters inside the film and what they assert (to a lesser extent, what they are doing). To "keep" the eye and attention of the population, you will need to PLAY! Plus they are playing.

One cannot but praise, not surprisingly, Jens Albinus, whose surprisingly stupid and touching face, "The main boss" owes a huge percentage 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 exactly the same time.

An interesting fact is the presence within the casting of your director of your heavyweight, affectionately accepted at the moment "Angels of your Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson within the role of an organization partner, and also a potential buyer of this complete office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) as well as undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of women, perhaps, I would like to praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, that is still remembered by me to the 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 had to - could have settled in Hollywood with numerous royalties.

Rather then conclusions.

The film is funny and original, yet not free of a great quantity of boredom. On the comedy, pure water is just not drawn, but quite watchable, 123movies or even at 2 am. I would not 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, hardly noticeable humor. Anyone who wants to fuss and discover how cinematic geniuses apply it - you will be welcome! That way.
