5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Magnificent
If you have a dark sense of humour and don't mind laughing until you pee, you will love this film and watch it over and over again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dark in places.
Based upon the strong customer reviews, i went ahead and bought this. It's got that typical dark humour the Dane's love with the flashbacks of the main characters childhood experiences especially depressing. It's a mix of drama and comedy and my biggest gripe are the americanized subtitles. I don't mean to be picky but the conversation in the restaurant at the beginning...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and action, 24 May 2004
This review is from: Flickering Lights [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This Danish film may be unknown to most people, but even though, it is more than worth to take a look at. It is a nice mixture of action and fun thanks to the spledid actor work. The actors have got the perfect combination of being lunatics, maniacs, intelligent and totally unpredictable. So are you looking for a good manuscript, this film is absolutely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danish film making at its best., 4 Sep 2008

This review is from: Flickering Lights [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
One of the best and most typically 'Danish' films ever made.
Outwardly a 'gangster' film, beautifully shot whilst carefully exploring the human psyche throughout. Fantastically sharp and blunt humour and a spectacular finish. The characters may speak a different language but you will know them immediately.
A first rate film with a great cast and a brilliant director.

It's a mix of drama and comedy and my biggest gripe are the americanized subtitles. I don't mean to be picky but the conversation in the restaurant at the beginning of the film was stupid with references to disneyland/6 flags themepark and the dislike of canucks. Then again it was a region 1 version. I failed to have sympathty with a couple of the lead characters and also found the slaughter of the animals a bit distasteful whilst the shoot-out at the end was predictable. Still it was a hell of a lot better than what we're accustomed to with the uk cinema's of harry potter etc

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this one, 2 Oct 2007
This review is from: Flickering Lights [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The Danes know how to make personal films with a wonderful unexpected twist. The story about some small crooks who turn out to not be not so good cooks is sometimes nailbiting sometimes hilarious. And is it not what we all want from time to time - to be able to transform into somebody new? A must for all film lovers and lots of blood and shooting for the thriller fan.
