Tomas Villum Jensen,
A satire, psychological drama and comedy rolled into one, director Erik Clausen's Villa Paranoia adeptly draws upon rich characters, who demonstrate the values and strength of the human heart, to create a portrait of Denmark today.
Not being a huge fan of Erik Clausen, I wanted to see if he had improved since recent movies.
It turns out NOT! The cast for this movie is excellent, all of the stereotypes are there. But the acting and the plot was utterly useless! A few lines, are good, and underline the stereotypes.
I expected a lot more acting talent from Henrik Bruhn, who is an acknowledged danish stand-up comedian. But of all the actors in this movie, he was the worst! Overall a two stars, for a few lines, and a good cast..
Don't waste your time unless you are really enthusiastic!
