A movie which caused some controversy as it touches on provocative themes but also revolutionary as it was made under 'Dogme 95'. Dogme 95 was an avant garde movement, a set of 10 rules put together by directors including Lars Von Trier. Aim of Dogme 95 was to purify filmmaking which is achieved in Festen. The movie is raw, devastating and because it feels so real like a documentary, the movie is even more shocking. A movie that everyone wants to watch out of curiosity and to find out what the fuss is about.
