Flickering Lights

Academy Award(tm) winner Anders Thomas Jensen, whose style has been described as a cross between Tarantino and The Coen brothers, has pulled a stunner with Flickering Lights, both shocking and funny, violent and gentle. It's a brand new kind of gangster comedy about four childhood buddies whose screwed-up crimes turn out to have redeeming value. Torkild, a bumbling petty criminal, and his accomplices, dispatched by a mob boss to rob a diplomat, decide to flee with the loot and head for Barcelona. After their van breaks down in the Danish countryside, they find refuge in an abandoned building. Their leader, deciding that he's tired of the criminal life, buys it in hopes of opening a restaurant. Even though his little gang of faithful buddies (who have never really grown up) has a depressing tendency to fail at all jobs, they unite in the effort and magically, incredibly, are able to turn their lives around. Directed by Anders Thomas Jensen, 2001, color. In Danish with English subtitles.

Inspector Coliandro:  Double Robbery

A group of armed robbers takes the customers and personnel of a bank hostage, little knowing that Inspector Coliandro is using the bank's bathroom, or that there are three even more desperate criminals - armed with real weapons and not toy ones like the robbers - already in the bank, ready to do whatever it takes to retrieve important documents that could send them to prison. Coliandro, once again leaving his superiors speechless, foils both plots, saving the hostages in the bargain. Directed by Manetti Bros, 2008, color. In Italian with English subtitles.  Buy Coliandro DVDs!
