A few days before the wedding forces her old friend, Thomsen, suddenly. Katherine finds out that there is something wrong with Thomsen, but she gets in one way or another said the opposite, leaving a relieved and happy Thomsen, who shall personally see to it that they are both something used, something blue, something new and something borrowed here the day before the wedding. It starts with a used dog, something strange hair, no little blue pills, and it ends in Glostrup with a crazy sister who Thomsen definitely think they should borrow from the closed ward. But tomorrow there will be another day. A wedding day . Written by Dørge

Undogmatic Dogma
15 July 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This Danish film begins with the famous Dogma Certificate, but it's not orthodox. Not orthodox at all. Handcamera isn't used all the time and there are definitely sound put on afterwards.

It as a comedy however with dark bottoms. It is about the girl, played by Sidse Babett Knudsen, who's going to get married, but has a serious problem. She is too much a coward to tell the truth about important things. For example, she doesn't dare to tell her sister at the psychiatric clinic, that she's getting a husband.

A Swede from the past, Björn Kjellman, comes in with some life (it's not often boring Swedes play that kind of character). There are some laughs here and some tough conflicts. Worth seeing, although not a masterpiece.
