The Celebration (Festen)

Denmark is home the happiest people in the world, according to many surveys, with a large and prosperous middle class. The upper class of Danes, if The Celebration is anything to go by, could use a little therapy. The first (and best) film ever made under the Dogme95 “vow of chastity” rules, The Celebration is anything but chaste.
