directed by Thomas Vinterberg
Denmark 2005

 

The Dandies are a group of social misfits, who meet and share the love for guns, on an intellectual level, discussing philosophy, giving lectures on the history of specific firearms, perfecting the art of shooting at a target and giving their guns names. Important is, that they are pacifists and have a strict code never to draw their gun. Important is, that they never fire their guns. They make love with them.

A direct attack at the second Amendment and that the hypocrisy of the American society, who in their naiveté believe that protection and killing people is the same, from Lars von Trier, orchestrated by Thomas Vinterberg in post-dogma style compositions.

Suggesting that having a gun causes one to act illogical, even absurd, Vinterberg demonstrates this by abandoning the logic of plot, but also thru the actions of the protagonists, having his pacifists heroes begin a shoot-out at the end. Guns don’t kill people, people with guns kill people. And having a gun will turn you into a killer.

Chapters 13

 

 

Comments Produced by Electric Parc, there isn't much to say about the transfer, except that it looks perfect. There is no macro blocking and no compression artifacts visible. The original AR and color palette is maintained.

The extras begin with an audio commentary by director Thomas Vinterberg and DoP Anthony Dod Mantle, who talk about the production, motifs, individual scenes and style. The commentary is in English and not subtitled.

Its followed by the production documentary "Letters to Dear Wendy" by Michael Sandager, who also made the recent documentaries "Anecdotes" on the von Trier E-Trilogy Boxset, and an interview with von Trier and Vinterberg. Both programs are subtitled in English.

Next are 5 deleted scenes (play all available), each with optional audio commentary by Vinterberg and editor Mikkel E.G. Nielsen. And finally some trailers and poster artwork.
