2.5 out of 10 Von Trier does comedy
Tim from Cork, 02 Sep 2008
I'm a big fan of lars Von Trier, Dancer in the Dark is one of my favourite films but here it seems as though he's making a film just to please himself. It's extremely self-aware, possibly in homage to french new-wave but not carried off well. It takes ages for the film to get going and while it is quite engaging and even slightly funny in the middle it all roundds off with an average ending. I do feel that a lot of the hunour was lost in translation so I recommend this if you're Danish...

3.5 out of 10 Unortodox, low budget but with redeeming qualities
Damien from Dublin, 26 Oct 2008
Definitley different and not an all action type but a slow burner that raises a few laughs. Be advised subtitles.

What's it about....
From one of the world's most controversial and fêted directors comes an office comedy! Ravn is the seedy owner of an IT company who has invented a 'Boss Of It All' to take responsibility for all his unpopular decisions. When he decides to sell the company the buyers insist on dealing with the Boss and so Ravn decides to hire an actor to play the role. What could possibly go wrong? Lars Von Trier has created a hilarious comedy in his own inimitable fashion.
