Could have been much better
16 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

"Inkasso" is in many ways a logical extension of "I Kina Spiser De Hunde" and "Gamle Mænd I Nye Biler", both of which were quite fun and entertaining. "Inkasso" falls short, however, because the story is straighter (i.e. less absurd and therefore less funny), trying but failing to feel more real. The acting is not top-notch, although some performances are good, and the dialog in particular is unconvincing - a great problem in contemporary Danish cinema, TV and music generally. The Danish language has deteriorated, partly because of the vast influence of English-language culture which means that people don't really bother with proper Danish anymore, and this is being felt everywhere in Danish media of every kind. I don't really care that much about the preservation of the Danish language (I find English superior), but using it really poorly is still grating. They should do the movies in English instead, which would also open up a much larger market for them.

Anyway, Kim Bodnia is as good as can be expected in this movie, whereas I wasn't that impressed with Iben Hjejle, who's been better in just about everything else I've seen her in. Ole Ernst was very convincing in his role, and Allan Olsen was fairly good, too. But overall the movie was slightly boring and never really got off the ground.

5 out of 10.
