Don’t let the cheap wrapping and the dogma effects trick you: This is a masterpiece of a movie. It is dead funny almost all the time through but at the same time it is dead serious and it hits hard in the end, a little like in ”Million dollar babe” where you just enjoy the movie full time and when the blow comes..... you just sit there halfway in chock.
At least some of the actors in this movie are professional, but you will not guess. They all play so good idiots you think that they are just normal people with a slight psychic issue. Its really impressive to see the dogma effect making it all realistic when we know that it is directed and scripted.
Another great thing about this movie is that its really the best reality show I have seen. I am so tired of all the reality crap on TV but this is good stuff. The movie is also trying ot be somewhat a documentary (at times) and it reminds me of one movie: The Blair Witch project, which was an extremly popular movie, but which I find to be the outtermost CRAP.
And ”The Idiots”? – its the perfect example. Learn from it. Enjoy it. Become an idiot yourself.
