Danish humor is good but not for the faint hearted
16 September 2013 | by (utrecht) – See all my reviews

This movie was made in the style of gems like "the green butchers", "adam's apples" and "flickering lights". No wonder, because those movies also had the stamp of director / writer Anders Thomas Jensen on them (and also actor nicolaj lie kaas in them). Ridiculous story and dialog, hard humor and always unexpected turn of events is his trademark and this movie has it all! I saw one review saying that it was unrealistic and impossible. Well, that was probably the intention of the director, so enjoy it if you like a funny movie and go watch a documentary if you want realism! no spoilers in this review, just watch the movie!
