The Boss of It All   Danish (2007)

Winner, Best Supporting Actress (Lyhne), Zulu Awards
Nominated, Best Supporting Actor (Fridriksson); Best Supporting Actress (Lyhne), Bodil Awards (Denmark)
Nominated, Best Actor (Albinus); Best Screenplay; Best Supporting Actor (Gantzler), Robert Festival (Denmark)
Nominated, Golden Seashell (Von Trier), San Sebastian International Film Festival

Written and directed by Lars Von Trier
Starring Peter Gantzler, Jens Albinus, Jean-Marc Barr, Mia Lyhne, Sofie Grbl, Anders Hove, and Fridrik Thr Fridriksson

The IT firm seems like a normal enough workplace. The employees show up every day, work hard, do their best. Their boss is Ravn (Gantzler), who in turn reports to the Boss of It All. Soon everyone has to start asking: who knows what, who knows who(m), and how do they know what they know?

Through its cast of kooky coworkers, the humor combined just the right amount of absurdity and fast-paced verbal parrying to keep me on my toes.

The Boss of It All is one of my favorite funny films and held up to a second viewing; knowing what was going to happen made everything leading up to the end more entertaining. I’ll be watching it again.

96 min. Not rated. Some sexual content and adult themes.

The Boss of It All is a great film that’s absurdly funny. It’s worth watching multiple times.
