Surprisingly boring best European picture
19 August 2002 | by (Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

"Små Ulykker" was the film to continue the fine Danish tradition for awards at the Berlin film festival. The movie displays itself in the footsteps of "Mifune", "Italian For Beginners" (two other Berlin winners) in an impro style like "Let's Get Lost", or Mike Leigh.

Centered around Marianne, this film elaborates on the subjects of family and loss but the attempt of facing tragedy with a smile does not succeed. Also there is very little sympathy for the characters here. Pia (Jannie Faurschou) and Tom (Henrik Prip) is half the family but is here only presented as shallow stereotypes and only Jørgen Kiil as the father and Maria Würgler Rich faces the challenge of evolving their characters with a good result.

The film fails as you do not want to like this characters. That way you don't really care with them - or the film. "Små Ulykker" may be award winning, but never the less it is boring and indifferent and leaves the viewer cold and careless.
