**Dark Dark comedy made by Jensen who is a brilliant writer and director.. Its not made for everyone but personally.. I believe it to be an absolute MASTERPIECE.. I laugh my butt off every time I re watch it and thats quite often. The comedic genius involved is just mind blowing..
Many people dont realize the relationship half the cast along with Mikkelson has with Jensen the movies creator and director. Its long standing in Danish theater… and its a splendid connection.. Most Americans have NO idea just HOW funny Mikkelson is and has been in films… I REALLY hope he does more comedys and soon… This is a MUST SEE **
**Two brothers and their quest to find the truth.**
A strange Danish film. It was a lot like the Danish version of ‘The Addams Family’. Written and directed by a screenwriter for the notable films in different languages. This is the story of two brothers who embark a journey to a remote island after their father died. Because they learn they were adopted, so they go to look for their biological parents. They end up in a strange house with the strange people, but realise how they are related to each other. So the remaining part focused on the mysteries surrounding the house. When those things come out, the narration reaches its peak and brings the end.
I think the title should have been ‘Men & Animals’. If you watch the film you will know the reason, particularly after the final twist. As I had observed, many people liked it, but to me it was average. The idea seems very good, but the style was missing. Too ordinary presentation. If the approach was atypical like I said ‘The Addams Family’, it would have gained more popularity internationally.
The actors were good, shoot in the good places. Among all, Nikolaj was the familiar face. This is not your usual film, yet not for everyone. Maybe if you know the language, you might enjoy it better. The subtitle translated comedies are not that effective. Feels like I want to like it, since it was tagged as a comedy I did not get many laughs. So I won’t stop you if you want to try it, but only tell you to be careful while choosing it, regarding what you are expecting from it.
Probably the best 6/10 movie I’ve seen so far
Humorous, a bit dark and dramatic. It has a quiet relaxing atmosphere with kind of increasing tension among the characters throughout the film.
Another ATJ masterpiece of black humour…and insanity
OK. Admittedly, I’m biased. I’m an enormous fan of Anders Thomas Jensen’s movies and pretty much adore everything he’s ever made or been even tangentially involved in, but up until now I was very firmly of the belief that ‘Blinkende Lygter’ was and would always remain my favourite of ATJ’s movies. That was until I saw ‘Mænd & Høns’ and fell completely and traitorously in love.
A perfect balance of black (oh god so so black) humour and pathos, this movie is a testament to ATJ’s wonderfully deft touch with both. The characters, surreal and ridiculous as they are, are played with such humanity and conviction, that one cannot help but love them all, every last weird, disgusting one of them. As dual-lead, David Dencik is both loathsome and pathetically lovable as Gabriel. Nicolas Bro is a delight as always as the loquacious over-sharing Joseph, as is an almost unrecognisable Søren Malling as Franz. However, whereas it’s normally Nicolaj Lie Haas that takes the comedic football and runs uncontested for the touchline, ‘Mænd & Høns’ is (definitely) Mads Mikkelsen’s movie. As the compulsively masturbating, bombastic Elias, Mikkelsen reaps the lion’s share of the comedic lines, delivering them with such incredible timing and bravado you can’t help but think he missed his vocation when he opted for a career as leading-man heart-throb over bumbling idiotic funnyman.
I can’t say enough good about this film. Watch it as soon as a UK release is available. Talk about it until there is. Petition your local cinemas. Buy ‘Mænd & høns’ t-shirts and bore your friends. I know I will.
