Festen

(The Celebration)

 

A Danish film by

Thomas Vinterberg of the Dogma-95 collective

 

In the Danish summer, guests arrive at a magnificent old hotel for the 60th birthday celebration of Helge Klingenfeldt (Henning Moritzen). Present are his loyal wife Elsa (Birthe Neumann), daughter Helene (Paprika Steen) and sons Christian (Ulrich Thomsen) and Michael (Thomas Bo Larsen), who arrives uninvited after failing to attend the funeral of Christian's twin, Linda, who committed suicide. As the evening progresses, Christian feels compelled to break the silence surrounding a dark family secret. The effect is explosive and sets the tone for a 'celebration' no-one will forget.  (Urban Cinephile)
