Lovers of Danish dogma films : watch out ! A different film.
8 June 2007 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

For those astute spectators who thought that Danish cinema was all about Dogma type over the top, hype films than you are for a shock. There is not an ounce of doubt that Danish dogma films were good. The only bad thing about them is that people were getting used to the idea that Danish cinema belongs exclusively to Lars Von Trier. But as is wont with intelligent viewers, fastidious film lovers are always desirous of exploring new facets of cinemas unknown to them. It is with this idea that one must watch this film. Villa Paranoia is directed by Erik Clausen who is a much respected veteran of Danish cinema.He has made a simple film which entertains its viewers nicely. At a close look, it has moments of romantic alliance between its leading players. At the same time it tackles serious issues too.It talks of issues like old people, unemployment, love and affection. Directing oneself in one's own film is a serious challenge. However, Erik Clausen proved his critics wrong by giving fine performances as an actor. A DVD of this film is available from K-films.
