Fantastic movie
8 May 2004 | by swisswuffSee all my reviews

Not only is this movie a twisted comedy that does not attempt to "bring home every punch line", but instead, offers an atmospheric, almost contemplative type of humor unparalleled by others. The storyline is coherent, unlike some movies by other comedians. Also, the camera is brilliant. One instance would be where Nihil Baxter's head is next to his lamp in the first portrayal of his house. Some shots are taken in an almost British film noir manner, seen in some detective movies from the seventies.

Even though there is an apparent distortion about the characters Helge plays, they are rather well observed, and satirical and heart-warming at the same time. Helge embraces his characters somehow, and a happily floating absence of cynicism makes the movie a treat you may want to watch more than once.
