Charming simplicity
21 August 2001 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie comes in the middle of a revival of the Danish comedy genre and without achieving brilliance it does charm with a host of good acting, believable lines and above all a terrific performance from veteran actor Jens Okking.

Focusing on the accidental relationship between an undertaker and a middle-aged businessman who just has to sort out one last thing before retiring with his wealth after the death of his long ill wife, the film tells a story about knowing what you want from life, settling scores and the importance of love and self development. Themes that might sound heavy but are elegantly handled.

In the second main character of the film, actor Peter Gantzler makes a very credible person of the restrained undertaker-turned-chauffeur, and the mellow interplay between Okking and Gantzler is the main achievement of this small gem.

The camerawork and editing is functional without interrupting the story and the score is very well picked. Everything works and the film's short length makes it a tight and all together enjoyable story. A real feel good film. Not fantastic, but heart warming.
