Urban Nordic Western
4 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this last month at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Director/writer Shaky González was born in Chile raised in Denmark and in this comedy-adventure spoof of spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leon and Mexican bandit films of Robert Rodriguez, González spins a modern yarn about Danish gangsters. Or maybe just a tale about a dysfunctional urban family that has grown out of proportion. A couple of filmmakers are intrigued by the story of a multi-million dollar heist by a gang of thieves led by Frank Lories (Erik Holmey), a master criminal and the strongest and most feared man in Copenhagen. Also in the gang are Frank's two sons Sonny (Daniell Edwards) and Brian (Dennis Dean) and his niece Tina (Sophie Lossen-Kahlke). The other thugs-turned adversaries include Ramirez (Hector Vega Mauricio), Pucha (Sami Darr), Shameer (Mustafa Ali), Ivan (Zlatko Buric) and Tuki (Salah el Koussa). Seven years after the heist there are many different stories on how much was stolen, what happened to the gang members and what became of the stolen loot. In each telling the story looms larger. Those who leave the theater before the credits roll will miss the big picture as much will become evident as the epilogue continues behind the closing credits. There is a lot of comedy here and it comes across as a really good bad movie. I would give this a 7.0 out of 10.
