Back to the 60’s

Thomas Vinterberg’s latest film, The Commune, is well acted and often entertaining, but ultimately a disappointment.

Vinterberg burst onto the world cinema scene in the late ‘90s as one of the leaders of the Dogme 95 movement. This was a group of filmmakers who proposed a manifesto for making movies that would give them authenticity and depth. Among the Dogme guidelines was that movies had to take place in real time, use no music other than what characters listened to or played in the course of the film, and be filmed in real locations – no sets allowed.
