Movie Reviews

Great black comedy
info16142 | 03/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of my favorite movies of the past year. Looking forward to its release on DVD. Amazing black comedy that is directed by Oscar Winner Anders Thomas Jensen (who also wrote Mifune and Open Hearts). Stars the biggest names in Danish cinema in a film that won't soon be forgotten. The Danish version of the Coen Brothers but maybe with a tad more violence and a tad more heart."
A fine danish pastry

"Famed Danish writer Anders Thomas Jensen (Mifune, Open Hearts, King is Alive, In China They Eat Dogs) does a great job of mixing genres in his directorial debut. Part violent black comedy, part crime film, and partly an emotional buddy film about friendship. Cast includes such Danish mainstays as Ulrich Thomsen, Iben Hjejle, Soren Pilmark, Mads Mikkelsen and others. Should become a cult classic here."
I love Arne

(5 out of 5 stars)

"After first encountering Mads Mikkelsen as the breath-taking Tristian in "King Arthur" not more than a mere two months ago, I have prowled the internet in search of any film having the privilege of being graced by his presence. Having added "The Green Butchers", "Pusher", "Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself", and "Shake It All About", to my formerly non-existent DVD collection"
Terrific cast, plot line falls short.
D. Kanigan | CT, USA | 01/19/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Danish film based on 4 small time gang members who fail to deliver on a job for a mobster named Eskimo and then are asked to heist a safe with $500,000. The gang members, childhood friends, each face a personal crisis of one sort or another and decide to run away with the money to start a new life rather than turn over the loot.

* Terrific cast. Mads Mikkelsen ("Arne") and Ulrich Thomsen ("Peter") are particularly good.
* Witty lines in a dark / bleak comedy.
* Violent in a number of scenes (involving humans and animals)
* The film loops in reflections and flashbacks of the gang's childhood and upbringing but does so in a superficial and unconvincing manner.

Want to see some great Danish films, I would suggest you start with any of these four: The Inheritance. Brothers. After the Wedding. The Celebration.
