Denmark has produced an extraordinary amount of great films lately, but I'm sorry to say that this isn't one of those. It's called a comedy, but to see it makes you more depressed than cheerful. Most of the characters lead very simple life's in a society that is distinctly chauvinistic. This is apparent between the two main-characters Sonja and Lars-Erik, and in spite of his bully manners and superficiality, you get the feeling that we are expected to like him. It's a mystery to me that a woman both directed and wrote this.
As a curiosity can be mentioned that a Swedish band called "Vikingarna" plays a part in the film, and for anyone that has a taste for music more sophisticated than country, this adds to the wish to leave the cinema before the film has ended.
If you are interested in Danish film and hasn't yet seen any of the highly acclaimed Dogma-films, and this film doesn't fall in that category, the best and most important, in my humble opinion, of them is Festen, directed by Thomas Vinterberg. It has everything that Bornholms Stemme lacks.
