Blu-ray Review – Klown (2010)

29 May 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Klown, 2010.

Directed by Mikkel Nørgaard.

Starring Frank Hvam, Casper Christensen, Marcuz Jess Petersen, Mia Lyhne, Iben Hjejle, and Niels Weyde.

In order to prove to his pregnant girlfriend that he is father material, Frank brings his 12-year-old nephew along on a weekend canoeing trip with his friend Casper, although the trip is really a front for a weekend of debauchery.

There is always a danger with comedy in a foreign language that the humour won’t translate as well, especially when you have to read subtitles and, as we all know thanks to social media and the backlashes it can cause, crude humour in written form doesn’t always have the desired effect. Luckily Danish comedy Klown doesn’t rely too much on the written (or spoken) word for most of its humour, most of which is very juvenile (but still extremely funny) and means you’ll probably have »
