Trivia

The scene where Sidse Babett Knudsen wakes up in bed next to a severed foot and suddenly regains the ability to speak, was all ad-libbed after she and the director decided that her character Rita needed some more personality. There wasn't time to add to the script, so she had to make up additional dialogue herself while filming. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the end title a drawing of a saw appears several time, referring to the title Fukssvansen (the old Danish word for saw.) See more »

strangely entertaining
15 November 2003 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I decided to watch this movie for one reason only: Thomas Bo Larsen. He delivers a great performance if somewhat short. I wont talk more about because then I'd spoil the movie.

The movie it self isn't the pinnacle of Danish film-making and if you're used to the renowned Danish directors as Lars von Trier and Bille August then you'll most likely find this movie rather crappy. It lacks all the things that make artistic movies. That said I liked Fukssvansen, It was funny and totally non-intellectual. And once in a while that's what I need to see.

I most likely won't watch it again, but I'm glad I watched it at least once.If I watch it again it's because it's on TV and I don't have anything better to do,
