Mifune's Last Song ( ; in North America and Swedish: Mifune), 1999, is the third film to be made according to the Dogme 95 rules. It is directed by Søren Kragh-Jacobsen. The film became a great success in Denmark and an international blockbuster ranked among the ten best selling Danish films worldwide.

Mifune's last song was produced by Nimbus Film.



Kresten has moved from his parents' farm on a small Danish island to Copenhagenmarker in order to pursue his working career. When his father dies he has to move back to the farm, where nothing much has happened since he left. He places an ad in the local newspaper to get help running the farm and taking care of his retarded brother. The prostitute Liva, who is running away from harassing telephone calls, takes the job. But running away from your past isn't easy.


The confession of a Dogme 95 film is an idea adapted by Thomas Vinterberg in the first Dogme 95 film: Make a confession if there are things happening that are not in accordance with the strict interpretation of the Dogme-rules. It is written in the director's point of view.

As one of the DOGME 95 brethren and co-signatory of the Vow of Chastity I feel moved to confess to the following transgressions of the aforesaid Vow during the production of Dogme 3 - Mifune. Please note that the film has been approved as a Dogme work, as only one genuine breach of the rules has actually taken place. The rest may be regarded as moral breaches.

  • I confess to having made one take with a black drape covering a window. This is not only the addition of a property, but must also be regarded as a kind of lighting arrangement.
  • I confess to moving furniture and fittings around the house.
  • I confess to having taken with me a number of albums of my favourite comic book series as a youth, Linda & Valentin (Valérian and Laureline).
  • I confess to helping to chase the neighbour's free-range hens across our location and including them in the film.
  • I confess that I brought a photographic image from an old lady from the area and hung it in a prominent position in one scene: not as part of the plot, but more as a selfish, spontaneous, pleasureable whim.
  • I confess to borrowing a hydraulic platform from a painter, which we used for the only two bird's-eye overview shots in the film.
  • I do solemnly declare that in my presence the remainder of Dogme 3 - Mifune was produced in accordance with the vow of chastity.
  • I also point out that the film has been approved by DOGME 95 as a Dogme film, as in real terms no more than a single breach of the rules has been committed. The rest may be regarded as moral transgressions.
