(aka 'The Inheritance')

directed by Per Fly
Denmark 2003

 

  The owner of a successful Bistro in Stockholm suddenly faces a difficult life decision with consequences that threaten all he holds dear. Ulrich Thomsen, the star of Thomas Vinterberg’s Dogma classic The Celebration, gives a heartbreaking performance as Christoffer, the son who must answer the towering call of family obligation. Winning six awards from the Danish film academy, The Inheritance, from up and coming Danish filmmaker Per Fly, is a taut cinematic portrait of a man who stands by as he watches his own soul destroyed.

Comments:

Firstly, I was extremely impressed with this film and my impressions of the DVD are not far behind. A strong anamorphic image, progressively transferred - great 5.1 audio, a directors commentary and a 'making of' feature that lasts almost an hour. Colors may be slightly 'off' in stages with excessively red skin tones at times, but overall balance is relatively consistent. There is probably a good reason why this wasn't issued on the Criterion label, but I don't know what it could be - a great, impacting film and a great DVD! STRONG recommendation!  out of    

The entire movie was shot with two-camera technique. According to the director this makes it easier to use actor improvisation. Most scenes are also shot with long focal lens. Apart from the visual effect actors did not know where the cameras were.
