Mifune

type
  • Movie

In Mifune, a just-married Copenhagen yuppie (Berthelson) returns to the family farm to care for his simpleton brother — and falls for the call girl (High Fidelity‘s Hjejle) whom he has hired as housekeeper. Some Tinseltown director could make a slick romantic comedy out of all this (Rain Man meets Pretty Woman), but Soren Kragh-Jacobsen, a Dogma 95 disciple, eschews calculated gags and cheap sentiment, favoring a sprawl of messily real emotions. Quick, catch this charmer before Hollywood gets its hands on the remake rights. B+
