Lff 2015: ‘Men & Chicken’ Review

26 September 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: David Dencik, Mads Mikkelsen, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Soren Malling, Nicolas Bro, Rikke Louise Andersson, Lisbet Dahl | Written and Directed by Anders Thomas Jensen

Looking for all the world like an absurd family farce directed by David Cronenberg (albeit in Danish), Men & Chicken certainly gets points for its commitment to oddness. Its premise sees two brothers, Elias (Mads Mikkelsen) and Gabriel (David Dencik), travel to a remote island with a scant population to find their biological father after the recently-deceased man who raised them reveals their origins in a poorly-framed confessional video. They’re both in sorry states – Gabriel is a lonely, unsatisfied university lecturer and Elias is a chronic masturbator who goes on dates with therapists to avoid exorbitant fees – but they’re positively well-adjusted compared to the three feral, idiosyncratic half-brothers they find waiting for them on the island of Ork.

A tragic if broad comedy of emotional failures at first, »
