...Soren Kragh-Jacobsen's low-rent version has a freshness and spontaneity....There is an earthiness to the unknown actors....MIFUNE is like a lesson in film-watching...

Rating: C+ -- It is a playfully weird telling of a familiar Hollywood type of a romantic comedy situation. Full Review

...The brusque realism of Mr. Kragh-Jacobsen's style -- his careful suppression of style -- allows a surprising sweetness to emerge...

Product Description:

Kresten (Berthelsen) is a Copenhagen businessman who has just married Claire (Grabol), his boss's beautiful daughter. When he receives a call the very next morning informing him of his father's passing, Claire is confused. Apparently, Kresten has told everyone in Copenhagen that he has no living relatives. This is due to the fact that he was raised in the country and was ashamed to confess to his unprosperous rural upbringing. Nervously, he assures Claire that the burial will be handled swiftly and that she needn't bother travelling with him. Arriving at his father's decrepit farm, Kresten encounters his handicapped brother Rud (Asholt). He reconnects with him by pretending to be the samurai actor Toshiro Mifune, a game they played throughout their childhood. When Kresten realizes that the paperwork is going to take longer than expected, he places a newspaper ad for a housekeeper, disgusted with their filthy living conditions. He gets more than he could have hoped for when the strikingly gorgeous Liva (Hjejle) arrives. Liva has been working as a prostitute in order to pay for her younger brother's private school tuition, but when she begins receiving threatening phone calls, she flees the city. As genuine feelings begin to emerge between Kresten and Liva, the truth unavoidably rears its mischievous head, teaching everyone involved a very powerful lesson about family and love.

Plot Synopsis:

Kragh-Jacobsen's bittersweet comedy concerns Kresten, a just-married businessman who is called back to his family's farm when his father passes away. Reuniting with his mentally disabled brother, Rud, he tries to clear up all the paperwork and return to his life in the city as soon as possible. When he realizes that this isn't going to be as easy as he'd hoped, he recruits a housekeeper to take care of the farm's day-to-day chores. The arrival, Liva, is a gorgeous prostitute who is on the run from a potentially psychopathic prank phone caller. As the truth slowly comes out, Kresten and Liva both learn powerful lessons about life, love, and family in this optimistic, enjoyable film compliments of the Dogme 95 collective.
