The Celebration is founded on a cheeky display of cinephilic self-promotion.

Best of the 'Dogme' fims, which isn't saying much, but there you go.

Extraordinary...It is a celebration, not of a sham birthday party, but of the transformative power of truth.

A major triumph for the Dogme group, and a success from any point of view.

Nick's Flick Picks

Pungent family drama, but thuddingly self-serious and wildly overpraised.

| Original Score: 2/5

It's a fine line to walk, that between comedy and misery, but Vinterberg handles the balancing act magnificently.

Watching the picture, it felt more like a cerebral experience, than a normal film.

Vinterberg, while successfully holding his viewer's attention and moving his tale along with dispatch, doesn't here justify the unpleasantness with fresh insight.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

This is a Dogma-95 styled film, where the Danish filmmaker's group manifesto determines the rules for how the film is to be made.
