Storyline

Ordinary Jan has no easy life. He is by far the most unpopular employee at work. At home it's even worse. His marriage with the not so ordinary Bente is on the verge of a breakdown. Jan's boss finally sends him into group therapy where an unlikely friendship emerges between Jan and the two mechanics Rudy and Alf. Had Jan only known, that Alf loved Opera, and had Bente known what Rudy and Alf were up to, they would never have let them into their home. On the corner of chance and destiny, their lives take unexpected turns. Written by Nordisk Film Production

Well-played average danish movie
20 June 2008 | by LaurentiusTSSee all my reviews

This is a typical danish movie (and thank you Paprika for that!), and fortunately I had no great expectations to it, and therefore I saw it with an open mind.

I enjoyed watching Lars Brygmann playing this insecure, jumpy, stressed, far-from-reality and black/white character, because he does it so great. He also has some great facial expressions (one of them is during a conversation with Søren Pilmark in the beginning of the movie).

And Sidse Babett Knudsen has some great insane outbursts, which she plays with splendid (dis)grace, and I love her voice and eyes when she goes nuts.

Rasmus Bjerg and Nicolaj Kopernikus are OK side-characters, but they do not carry the movie in the way that Lars does (although they did make me laugh out loud in the most violent scene in the movie... black humor when its best...).

I thought at first that this very black (=sad) comedy would go on and on with no further development, and I feared that the movie would end leaving me with a "Thats it?!" feeling. But fortunately that didn't happen.

Because, although I enjoyed watching the disturbing marriage conflicts and the twisted therapy classes, it went nowhere fast. The script is not perfect, but I forgive Anders Thomas Jensen (the writer).

Because about halfway through the movie, it all slowly becomes clear why everything in Jan and Bentes life is so sad and stuck.

And from there on, the movie changes, and leaves the black comedy genre, and concentrates on the relationship between Jan and Bente.

I actually mostly enjoyed the second part of the movie, since its the part of the movie, that reveals what is beneath the surface in their relationship.

Also because Jan and Bentes characters develop along the way as they realize what really matters in their lives.

The side-characters, Jans colleagues at work, Søren Pilmark and Kirsten Lehfeldt, plays small parts but are flawless funny as always!

All in all, its an OK average danish movie (which I've seen a lot of!) I would want to see again, mostly because of Lars Brygmanns performance, but its not going on my DVD shelf.

PS: If you are an opera fan, this might help you in enjoying the movie.
