Third release for the Danish film collective Dogma 95 (following "The Idiots" and "The Celebration") is a comedy/romance with a couple of twists. Yuppie Kresten (Berthelsen) travels to the family's run-down farm to check on his mentally handicapped brother, Rud (Asholt), after their father's death. Kresten needs a housekeeper and winds up with attractive Livia (Hjeljle), who neglects to tell him she is a hooker on the lam from her threatening pimp and also shows up with her younger brother (Tarding). Kresten and Livia soon share a mutual attraction and lots of obstacles. Title refers to Rud's hero worship of actor Toshiro Mifune. Danish with subtitles.
