Kunsten at græde i kor
(2006)

AKA: The Art of Crying

Country: Denmark

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

Follows a precocious, eleven-year-old Allan, who tries desperately to keep his dysfunctional, rural family together during the social upheavals of the early seventies. Allan reveres his father, Henry, the local milkman, and can't understand why others don't feel the same way. His family life is so twisted he thinks it's perfectly normal to stay awake all night dealing with his father's hysterics and suicidal threats. Allan's older brother left town several years ago, and his mother gave up long before that, relying on sleeping pills to escape Henry's tantrums.

Notes

  • "græde i kor" is not just crying, but communal crying, as for example at a funeral.
  • Denmark's entry for 2008 foreign language Oscar

Dividing Bar

Remarkable film, part of a Danish tradition of dark deadpan comedies. The actors are speaking the South Jutlandic dialect.
