Synopsis

This film is Dogme 1 - Dogme in its first incarnation. It proved much more approachable than it might have looked on paper and the rules under which it was made turn out to be a gift and an opportunity for a talented director with a sparkling story about the childhood secrets revealed by a son on the occasions of his father’s 60th birthday party. Festen is a delicious exercise in controlled, cathartic anarchy, worth watching for its singular, poignant story, its mirth and its fearlessness.

Thanks to Metrodome
