A very Interesting documentary
21 August 2017 | by rowandriscollSee all my reviews

The Red Chappel is the first feature documentary by Mads Brügger, it follows him and two South Korean/Danish comedians going to North Korea to put on a purposely bad comedy show. It serves as a comedy and a tragedy, it exposes the horrors of the oppressive culture in North Korea while still displays it in a humorous way. The writing and premise for this documentary are both very intelligent but there are some drawbacks,ones that are a given for this type of documentary. The cinematography isn't great and the audio ranges from meh to bad but the worst problem with the film by far is the conclusions that Mads makes with no proof or reason to reach said conclusion. Since he is in North Korea he cant ask people what they are thinking so he just assumes what they're thinking and it runes otherwise great scenes. Overall its a smart, funny and ballsy film and I would recommend it to anyone.
