Storyline

Lars Olafssen, once a young celebrity in the art world is slipping away fast into the land of has-beens. His long-time art dealer, Ronny, is now an ungracefully aging hipster who desperately wants his meal ticket back. But Lars refuses to paint. His creativity comes at too high a cost - his inspiration is carnage - blood, guts and limbs. Not surprisingly, this lead to a dreadful breakdown in the past. Nevertheless, an eager Ronny arranges a teaching job for Lars at an art school in Koda Lake, a small Canadian town in the middle of nowhere. It's a "therapeutic" measure for Lars - a means to conquer his need to paint in the "safety" of a country retreat... That is, until Eddie comes into his life. Written by dobbinnian / rodriguez

Good, hilarious fun
3 July 2012 | by (Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this one when I saw it at the Edinburgh International Film Festival: it's consistently funny, and reminiscent of the UK's Shaun of the Dead, except obviously with a Danish-Canadian spin. I'm not going to bore you with a summary of the film, as you can easily find that elsewhere on this page, but I will say that it was well cast, well acted, and very well paced. Great comedic timing, and a really interesting character dynamic, in that you feel sorry for almost everyone involved; you don't just feel sorry for Eddie, whose cannibalism is almost being taken advantage of by Lars, but also for Lars, who has trouble finding inspiration, and Lesley, who doesn't understand why he's acting so strangely. That makes for a really compelling story, which is wrapped up perfectly at the end. I left the cinema very satisfied, and it's one of my highlights from the whole festival.
