Critic Reviews for Blinkende Lygter (Flickering Lights)
Mostly, it exults in its inspired potential rather than any brilliant results.
A bleak male-bonding comedy that's a queasy blend of brutal humor and escalating sentimentality, it is overlong, heavy-handed, slow and unpersuasive.
The personality conflicts among the four seem a bit formulaic, as do the flashbacks explaining why each turned to crime, but the narrative is inventive enough to sustain interest.
This impressive debut feature from writer-director Anders Thom as Jensen is decidedly offbeat.
Audience Reviews for Blinkende Lygter (Flickering Lights)
Blinkende lygterSo what's with all of the animal slaughter? I have this theory that the Danish film industry is trying to corner the "quirky" market. If they want to do that, and if they want to keep the fans they have, they'd better think twice about their treatment of animals on screen. Any point that could be made in this movie could have been made without killing a single animal. Quirky? How about irritating.
Four Danish criminals hide out from their boss The Eskimo in a dilapidated country restaurant after pocketing the loot from the latest job. Made by Anders Thomas Jensen (ADAM'S APPLES),it's an entertaining mixture of sentimentality, comedy, brutish violence and Danishness.
I was hoping for a hilarious black comedy in vein of "Adam's Apples" and with excellent Danish cast, how could you go wrong. Well... the story seemed familiar and the jokes were not that funny. The "flashbacks" didn't really work and added little to the movie. I did get a few chuckles, but in the end this was disappointing.
