With no knowledge of Danish cinema before this week I was looking forward to seeing Festen and other bits of Dogme filmmaking. I had seen scandinavian stuff before and enjoyed it very much, and imagined that it may not be too dissimilar from German filmmaking, being geographically quite close, but how wrong could I be? Dogme is pretty much unlike anything I’ve ever seen before in terms of content, style and rhetoric. I’m unsure as to whether I’ve decided whether or not this is a good thing.
