New gender roles
30 December 2013 | by milton-freddySee all my reviews

This film meant the only real success for director Esben Høilund Carlsen. It takes place in a time where people had to come to terms with new gender roles and the audience appreciated seeing how others played out these new roles. This was often executed within the framework of broad simplified comedies, but in this case, the subject matter is treated with subtlety and a kind of refinement, giving the actors the opportunity to add nuances to their characters. Therefore, we both experience irony as well as compassion shifting our view along the way. Having in some way passed this experimental stage of relationships today, we can still respect this movie for carrying a believable statement on the gender play of yesterday. The cutting is fast and vigorous and the dialog is snappy and well paced. Many otherwise painful situations are relieved by an overbearing or ironic treatment. The emotional depth is difficult to handle considering all the different storytelling elements in play, but the sum total is a movie steering clear of the traps threatening that difficult genre.
