Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg has yet to receive the attention of his fellow Dogme 95 compatriot Lars von Trier. While both have broken the strict rules of this back-to-basics film movement, Vinterberg has stayed closer to the principles of naturalistic storytelling. Von Trier, a born provocateur, seems more inclined to be labeled the "bad boy" of international cinema creating pieces that challenge conventional narrative and viewer expectation with aggressive glee. Vinterberg, however, has a quieter approach. His devastating "The Celebration" (Festen) is one of my absolute favorite films--a potent brew of family dysfunction that you're not likely to forget. Interestingly enough, he also served up one of my least favorite movies as well. "Dear Wendy" (with von Trier taking a screenplay credit) is an ill-conceived gun control parable that I found painful to sit through. But the power to elicit strong feelings (both good and bad) is a mark of a great director in my opinion. I'd rather see someone try something different and not succeed as opposed to sticking to formulaic committee moviemaking. With "Submarino," Vinterberg has stripped away all artifice to create one of the most subtle and powerful films that I've seen in quite some time.

The movie opens up with two young brothers in the heart of an all-too-familiar scene of neglect. Raising their baby brother, as well as each other, in the absence of an alcoholic mother--the moments are heartbreakingly tender and sad. When an unspeakable tragedy occurs, you know that it will have long range emotional repercussions for the brothers. The film fast forwards to adulthood--and each brother is given a segment of the film in an overlapping narrative device. Both are still struggling and trying to put their lives back together.

The Scandinavians are excellent story tellers. In large part thanks to the Dogme 95 movement which blossomed in 1995, film makers schooled in that era are now coming of age. Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day), Susanne Bier (In a Better World, After the Wedding), Thomas Vinterberg (The Celebration-his best in my opinion-and Submarino), and the Lion King of them all Lars Von Trier (Melancholia, Breaking the Waves) are all fine craftsman who know know how to tell a good yarn. I happened upon Danish film quite accidentally and now understand why it's taking its place at the film making table. Submarmino however was too dark and gloomy for me. Kudos are to be given to the director Thomas Vinterberg, however, for over half of the cast were novices which lent a very realistic feel to the story. Almost too realistic. Still, I'd recommend this film over your usual Hollywood fare.

Submarino is one of the most troubling films I've ever seen. Even more than, say, King of Devil's Island, it makes painfully clear just how costly the loss of innocence can be. It's not an easy process for any of us, but the least fortunate suffer the deepest kind of emotional brutalization. Imagine two brothers, both approaching middle school age, who have no humane choice but to care for an infant sibling in an atmosphere suffused with alcoholism, indifference, and cruelty. Though untrained and ignorant of the needs of a baby, they take pride and pleasure in doing what seems morally right and technically correct, and they love the child. Given their inevitable limitations, however, the death of the infant comes as no surprise, except, perhaps, to the brothers.

One wonders how they survived their own earliest years, and we are struck by their decency and their loving natures. Still again, it's no surprise when, as adults, neither has escaped the emotional demons that were born during childhood and adolescence.

As is often the case with abused children, their lives, at first blush, seem to have gone in opposite directions. One drinks large quantities of beer and lifts weights to better prepare him for a hard world where strength and toughness count. A working class Lad who lives a life of little promise and even less meaning. He remains, though, self-sufficient and durable, neither dependent nor despondent. Its easy to imagine that he could go on more or less indefinitely in much the same way -- little to lose and nothing much gained.

While it's not as clear as it might be, the younger brother has taken a different path. He looks and acts the part of a nerd, but one who has attained middle class status.

Low key, thoughtful look into the spiraling lives of two brothers. Redemptive at the end, though. Jakob Cedergren is one of my favorite actors. He can relay much emotion in a single look.
