When decisions needed to be made at the office, the owner invented a nonexistent company president to hide behind. Now, forced to bring the "Boss" face-to-face with potential purchasers and employees, he hires a failed actor to play the part. Much to everyone's surprise, the unmasked boss plays the ultimate part by becoming a hero.

I just did not get the humour in this film. I fell asleep 20 minutes in.

While watching this caustic corporate satire It’s difficult to tell exactly who Von Trier holds in deeper contempt. Lawyers? CEOs? Thespians? Danes? Icelanders? Anyone who isn’t Lars Von Trier? He seems to have a knack for thinking up ideas for edgy and intelligent films then ruining them by being stupid. This time around he delivers a brilliantly funny, if typically mean-spirited, comedy revolving around the unethical and cowardly owner of an IT company......think of a dark Danish version of “The Office”. He then proceeds to mar the proceedings with cheap gimmicks like stopping the action in order to lecture the audience and using some silly computer program to determine camera angles resulting in a nauseating blend of jarring cuts and off-centre framing. Great idea for a film though, too bad someone else didn’t think of it.
