backtrack: Festen (1998)


Searing family drama, classical and minimal in composition. The first »Dogma 95« film ever is like a very well crafted stage play, executed with hand held digital cameras and natural light.

Control and intensity. In my book of exposing secrets and lies.

    Also by far the best of the Dogma movies. There are many great quotes in it. Try go to a party, stand up and proclaim that you have prepared two speaches. That will cause a stir.

  2. Haven’t seen all Dogma movies, but I’d dare say it is the best of the ones I have seen – and not completely »dogmatic« either! Great work, very skilfully executed.
