Lars von Trier Dania, 2006

Steve Thompson's rating of the film Szef wszystkich szefów

After the protracted tedium of his recent "Nymphomaniac" what a joy to discover this 2006 gem from Lars Von Trier. Who would have thought the Danish auteur to have quite such a gift for sharp inventive comedy. Imagine a Scandinavian adaptation of "The Office" infused with the spirit of Gogol and Kafka. The script, acting and direction are inspired and much of this is genuinely, perversely hilarious.
