It's a comedy, it's a tragedy, it's a ...
27 June 2003 | by pbnSee all my reviews

'Tragicomedy' is what I submitted as a keyword for this title, and tragicomedy is what it is. With a dialogue full of good ideas and a comic angle on everything that goes on, but also a semi-political emphasis on the problems of the unemployed immigrant, a number of melancholic scenes and a decidedly tragic ending, I sense that the director has in fact gone directly for this mixed impression.

With its surprising and entertaining fake-documentary style featuring a narrator voice and look-backs on the life of the main character, the style of the film is colourful and fun. Add to that the perfect lead, Zlatko Buric, himself an immigrant to Denmark from Croatia, and you've got yourself a very good film.

Weaknesses are a few dull scenes, the somewhat undeveloped character Sarah, and the mystification that the viewer may feel about the criminal environment that plays a central role in the film. Some of these are probably products of the intention of getting all moods into the film.
