When potential purchasers insist on negotiating with the “Boss” face to face the owner has to take on a failed actor to play the part. The actor suddenly discovers he is a pawn in a game that goes on to sorely test his (lack of) moral fibre.
Plot: An IT company hires an actor to serve as the company’s president in order to help the business get sold to a cranky Icelander.

Not one of Lars von Trier’s more important works, but it’s worth a watch
Lars von Trier’s Danish-language comedy. It never interested me much, though I used to love von Trier (despite always acknowledging his numerous flaws). And it is definitely one of his least good films. If we ever find ourselves looking back at his career in the distant future, this one will not be mentioned much. It’s about an out-of-work actor (Jens Albinus) who is hired by a company’s CEO who is pretending only to be that company’s lead lawyer (Peter Gantzler) to impersonate the mythical, unseen “boss of it all”. Gantzler plans to sell off the company, as well as his employee’s patents, to an Icelander (played by Children of Nature’s director, Friðrik Þór Friðriksson), but he doesn’t want to be identified as the guilty party, instead setting up this patsy to take the blame from his crazy co-workers (among whom is Iben Hjejle, whom you may remember from Stephen Frear’s High Fidelity). The film is moderately amusing. Though many people seem to think von Trier’s oeuvre consists mostly of tragedies, his work is more often darkly comic. The Boss of It All isn’t nearly his funniest work. The Kingdom and The Idiots are both funnier, as is arguably Europa. Friðrik Þór Friðriksson actually provides most of the film’s laughs as the thunderous, Dane-hating Icelander, recalling Ernst-Hugo Järegård’s Dane-hating Swede from The Kingdom. But still, The Boss of It All is good, even if it will eventually just be a footnote.
All the actors are really good in this movie but Jens Albinus is a pure genius, his performance in “the boss of it all” outclasses any actor i’ve ever seen (i’am a cinéphile and i watch a lot of movies from all over the world ).
Of course, Lars von trier has a lot to do about that performance, since that movie, he’s my top director as well.
I’ve seen a lot of comedies but how many comedies can you watch all over years and still being interested and even laugh of the jokes you already know perfectly well ?
That’s the only one i know. Because Lars von Trier set the scenes with humour and intelligence combined and his actors have a lot of self-derision, particularly Jens Albinus.
That’s where all his genius come from, that and his actors skills. there is a lot of good actors but none as good as him with half his self derision, that’s what makes him unique.
It’s really difficult to choose your preferred movie but if i had to make that choice, “The boss of it all” would be the one.
Simply a masterpiece …
