If Dogma 95 is supposed to be about authenticity, then it doesn't work because the tight constraints of its manifesto apparently forces directing towards hyper-stylized camera work and cinematography, which I found way less sober than well-equipped (but cleaner) productions.

Anyway, the story and actors are very good. <spoiler>Christian has only one friend, who is the cook. Those who rally once the tide has turned don't count.</spoiler>
