    if you like "oddball movies", this one's for you. good ensemble cast, especially "liva" and the boy who played her brother. the wedding night scene at the beginning was hilarious.

    Another good addition to the Dogme cannon. This tale of rediscovered family members and people who aren't what they appear to be is very entertaining.

    Fairly decent Dogme film. While the Dogme rule set only really worked in Festen and was subsequently just a gimmick there were still a few decent movies in the genre and Mifunes sidste sang was one of them.

    Junto con "Los Idiotas" de Von trier y "La Celebración" de Vinterberg, este film bien puede ser la tercera joya del movimiento Dogma, aquel en donde el arte volvió para controlar al cine. Cámara en mano conocemos a varios atribulados personajes, convivimos con ellos y descubrimos aquello que les aflige y motiva. No es una comedia negra, tampoco un drama desgarrador como los de Von trier, este inclasiflicable film danà (C)s sólo narra una inviable historia de amor que dará comienzo a una familia totalmente "sui generis". Indispensable.

    La otra cara de Dogma. La primer cinta del movimiento que, afortunadamente, no tiene el sello Dogma (camara esquizoide) impreso en cada cuadro. En contraste, la intensidad y energia se encuentra en la interaccion de los actores y no en la camara masturbadora. MIFUNE carece de la tension psicologica de FESTEN y de la austeridad de IDIOTERN, pero cuenta con un simpatico y entretenido romanticismo. Quien no ha tratado de imitar, por lo menos una vez, al legendario Toshiro Mifune agarrado un palo de escoba y tirando sablazos a diestra y siniestra. A pesar de estos atributos MIFUNE no descubre nada nuevo y no propone retos mayores dentro del contexto Dogma. Buena para un dominguito con la pareja.

    Danish films always surprise you in a nice way. You don't really know what to expect, so you don't expect anything, and that way it always turns out to be great, no expectations=no disappointments. The film is a charming story about the relationship between Kresten and his retarded brother Rud, and how it changes when the prostitute Liva from Kopenhagen starts working as their housekeeper... Showing many parallels to Dustin Hoffman's "The Rainman", the story strikes a chord with the more sensitive in the audience-and the more perverted(the scene where Liva pees on the Persian rug of one of her customers). Also surprisingly, the retard Rud turns out to have the purest heart and the only one without nasty secrets under his emotional rug... I usually enjoy Dogme films and so I did with this one too.

    I'm usually not that interested in movies in foreign languages, and this being a dogma movie I didn't quite know what to expect. It turned out to be better than I expected. Some parts might have been a bit weird and peculiar, although it was nice to see something different for a change...

    Il manquait définitivement un certain tonus à l'ensemble de ce film volontairement très dogmien. Disons que les thèmes étaient de la redites et que décidément quelque chose manquait. Ça ressemblait à un villa paranoia, mais sans l'âme qui accompagnait ce dernier.
