One Hand Clapping.
19 August 2001 | by McBuffSee all my reviews

This small gem provides us with a welcome return for two Danish movie veterans, director Gert Fredholm, who hasn´t directed a film for 21 years, and star Jens Okking, who after a short ill-fated stint in Euro politics and subsequent health problems is back in form as a millionaire, who learns of a young hairdresser, who may or may not be his daughter. He decides to learn more about her, and hires mortician and mama´s boy (Peter Gantzler) as his personal driver. Part road movie, part comedy-drama, this charming little film won raves from Danish critics, but it´s a bit light-weight; the wrap-up is too fast and easy, but those are minor quibbles in what is basically an excellent (and non-Dogme) movie. Okking is as good as ever, Gantzler funny and endearing (though his part seems very similar to the one he played in "Italiensk for begyndere"), and Susanne Juhász makes a stand out film debut as the hairdresser. The title, by the way, refers to Okking´s ability to clap with only one hand. *** (of ****)
