Try this. Let's imagine you really want to see a movie. Maybe this one.
Nothing wrong with that. But maybe it's also your turn to do some
cleaning - you can't remember - but why risk argument or ill-feeling?
You decide it was my idea to see the film together. It would be rude to
refuse. You're a nice person after all.
The owner of a Danish IT company wants to sell up. There is only one
problem. When he started the company he invented an imaginary boss to
take the rap for unpopular decisions. So no-one has ever met the 'boss
of it all' until now. The Icelanders doing the buying insist on dealing
with the actual boss. So he hires an actor.
The actor, Kristoffer or 'Svend E' knows nothing about the company and
finds the buyers are not the only ones he has to bluff convincingly.
Over the years, he has 'sent' emails to the staff who start holding him
responsible for what he has said - and of course he does not know what
he's meant to have said. Ravn, the real owner, can't remember but there
was some serious stuff going down. A hilarious screwball comedy, The
Boss of It All also poses provocative moral dilemmas about how a boss
can use fictions to mistreat workers.
Even as a comedy, the film works on several levels. It starts with a
basic comedy structure where we know something most of the characters
don't. Kristoffer is the butt of the jokes but we want him to win. We
want him to guess what he has supposed to have said and somehow turn it
to his advantage. All this provides belly laughs at a gut level.
Especially when he is accused of 'lousy acting' by a woman who does not
know he is acting and means something else, or when he 'has' to have
raunchy sex with her. (Even the sex scenes are convincingly real, even
while they are excruciatingly funny.)
For fans of von Trier's work, there are more subtle jokes. At the
start, we hear von Trier's (uncredited) voice-over pointing out we can
just about see his (physical) reflection. But the film, he says, is not
worth a moment's reflection as it's comedy. It's as if someone had
said, "Whatever you do, don't think of 'x'". Immediately, that's what
you think about. Von Trier is the man who 'invented' Dogme95 cinema,
the back-to-basics arbitrary rules that included 'The director must not
be credited' - itself a pun on the theme of the film. Lines like, "Life
is a Dogme film" make us wonder how serious von Trier is as a
philosopher, or whether it's a joke at our expense. He can be a bit
like the Kristoffer character who gleefully insinuates, "I'm better at
being irritating on an intuitive level." Then there are jokes about
Danes (who are traditionally afraid of conflict - it is very 'un-Danish
to be 'bad cop') and gags that play on a historical power struggle
between Denmark and Iceland. The many levels all work so fast that
everyone can be laughing at something different at any one time.
Structurally, the movie dazzles. It gets seriously into screwball mode
and then every so often the Narrator returns to inject a Brechtian
distance, reminding us that it is fiction, making us think about how it
comments on the real world or insidious office politics. We feel a
tension, a need to get away from serious thought and just find out what
happens. The narrator bows to our desires and promises, god-like, to
resolve the dramatic tensions. (Fans of Shakespeare will recall how the
Bard would use a Narrator to draw attention to what we were
experiencing and so encourage us to analyse it. The Narrator, in
Shakespeare's plays, as in The Boss of It All, could be the true boss,
telling us what is really happening beneath the surface.) And the
dramatic ending will have you clinging to your seat. Hold on to your
sides cos if you laugh too much you might miss something.
Ever the creator of some new cinematic technique, von Trier has
committed the movie's cinematography to a (published) mathematical
formula and principle called 'Automavision'. This is designed to 'limit
human interference' and free the work from the force of habit and
aesthetics. As with Dogme95, no doubt half the film community will ask
if he is serious while another sector will go off and studiously
practice it. As an added fillip, Danish fans can play 'Lookey', to find
hidden visual elements out of context in the movie and first winner
gets to be an extra in the next film. Von Trier has also devised a new
ascetic aesthetic to 'rediscover his original enthusiasm for film.' And
he's tired of playing 'bad cop' in professional relationships while
other people get to be 'good cop' and nice to everyone, yet this master
of intellectual creation has taken the experience as inspiration for
the film, "poking fun at artsy-fartsy culture."
They sometimes say that if God didn't exist you'd have to invent him.
Sometimes you just need to know who you are dealing with. You need The
Boss of it All. At least in this film Lars von Trier credits himself as
Director. Not since The Five Obstructions has the question of
authorship been so seriously questioned. Even the character of the
actor, who wields enormous power, has to consult his 'character' on how
things should proceed.
From such serious polemics as Dogville and Manderlay, the cowboy romp
of Dear Wendy, the quasi philosophy of The Idiots, and the serious
mainstream challenges of Dancer in the Dark and Breaking the Waves, one
of the most original creative forces in contemporary cinema has turned
his technical genius to pure comedy. Gainsayers will still call him
pretentious, but they may laugh their socks off before they find out
who's telling the joke.
