Performances of Iben Hjejle and Kim Bodnia save Inkasso
10 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is a lighthearted romantic comedy, not to be taken too seriously, nor an impressive film by any stretch. There's nothing here that you won't find in a hundred other, probably better, boy meets girl comedies.

However, if you're a fan of Kim Bodnia, and want to see him stretch, just a bit, the tough-guy role that he's developed in "I Kina spiser de hunde", "Gamle mænd i nye biler" and "Den gode strømer" then Inkasso will be worth your time.

The storyline - small-time gangster with money problems and big dreams bumps into big-time gambler (Iben Hjejle) with money problems, marriage problems and just overall problems. Of course, you can't have a romantic comedy without the romance, so you know what's coming next. The script by itself won't carry the movie. Kim Bodnia and Iben Hjejle will.

If you've seen a few of Kim Bodnia's recent films then you're familiar with the street-wise, hood image he's created. He's mastered the role and is always fun to watch. Here we get a twist. Same gangster, same tough guy, but with a weakness, a little extra dimension to his personality. He's insecure around women, not sure of himself, not always on top of things. He's a tough guy who wants something else from life. A cliché? You bet, but watch how Kim Bodnia pulls that dimension into his character. His acting, and the chemistry he creates with Iben Hjejle, is what makes the movie.

What, by all other measures, is a mediocre movie and a throwaway script is made thoroughly enjoyable by the performances of Kim Bodnia and Iben Hjejle. If you're a fan of either of their earlier work then Inkasso should entertain you.
