Storyline

The last wish of the dying "Monk" is for his foster child, Harald, to find his real son, Ludvig. But the latter is currently in a Swedish prison cell. Peter and Martin - the two chefs - want to get him out and soon father and son meet for the first time in their lives. They get on from the word go, but now dad needs a liver transplant and Ludvig and Harald set about raising the wherewithal. Everything goes wrong when they try to rob a bank, though they meet Mille, who puts them onto a new trail, and Peter and Martin also make a contribution. However, soon they have the cops and the anti-terror corps on their tails. Written by Danish Film Institute

Wonderful black comedy...
1 July 2003 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I don't know what all these people are complaining about - I saw this movie in a film festival over here and spent most of the movie trying not to p*** myself with laughter. How the characters get in and out of such completely off the wall situations, and the deadpan way they said some of the lines left me in hysterics.

Granted it isn't a perfect film, but it's a good 7/10
