Critic Reviews for Arven (The Inheritance)
There's a major difference between Inheritance and The Godfather -- and that's a lack of epic and thematic sweep.
What makes The Inheritance so watchable, and so different from recent couples dramas like Closer, is that these privileged people are decent, likable and struggling to do the right thing.
In his role, Thomsen is strong and convincing.
Highly dramatic and intensely emotional, blessed with strong themes and an unstoppable narrative drive, it is adult, intelligent entertainment of a kind we rarely see these days.
Fly's heartbreaking drama about a man who inherits a ton of power and buckets of sorrow will tell you all you need to know about the soul-destroying nature of corporate culture.
Audience Reviews for Arven (The Inheritance)
[font=Century Gothic]In "The Inheritance", Christoffer(Ulrich Thomsen), a restauranteur, and Maria(Lisa Werlinder), an up-and-coming Shakespearean actress, are madly in love with each other while living the ideal life in Stockholm. Shortly after an impromptu visit from Christoffer's father, they learn that he has committed suicide. Upon their return to Copenhagen for the funeral, Christoffer's mother(Ghita Norby) asks him to become CEO of the family's struggling steel works, displacing his brother-in-law, Ulrik(Lars Brygmann), who has fifteen years of experience working there. Maria is none too thrilled at the idea of Christoffer's stewardship.(He had worked there previously but thoroughly hated the experience.) But he convinces her to stay and promises that it will only be for two years...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"The Inheritance" is pretty much just a predictable corporate soap opera but there is enough compelling drama at its heart to make it worthwhile. The movie also does a very good at exploring the notion of familial responsibility and wonders at its limits on an individual. [/font]
