Storyline

Jacob, a self-styled private investigator working out of his younger brother's auto salvage yard, sees a chance to make a quick kroner when he meets Finn, a simple chap on the dole. He convinces Finn's social worker to buy Finn a partnership in the PI business. He then sets out to train Finn as his assistant. Their first case is to find a young woman who's joined a cult and get her out. Jacob tapes a walkie-talkie to Finn's leg and sends him into the cult to find and kidnap her. Can these bumbling fellows figure out which woman she is (all cult members have forsaken their old names) and get her out without coming to the attention of the well-muscled guards? Will she want to come? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Kom ind Finn - Johnny is using wellingtons...
27 May 2010 | by JakobfstammSee all my reviews

Brilliant movie. Unique, different and really funny.

The main characters in the movie are Finn and Jacob. Both of them are a bit lost, and looking for purpose in their life's. The film begins with the two of them meeting on a rabbit killing seminar. Through out the movie there is a feeling of tragedy and sadness, but the two main characters keep up there good spirit and belief in their abilities as private investigators. This is way better than the sequel "Jydekompagniet 3". They didn't make a "Jydekompagniet 2", because number twos have a tendency of being disappointments.

Of course this film is in danish. The humor in the movie is also characteristic danish humor. This is what makes this movie so great, but also the reason why it is not for everyone. If nothing else this movie is different from anything else produced these days.

Unique and funny definitely worth a view, if you are interested in danish cinema after Balling and before the newer generations of Refn, Bornedal, Vinterberg and so on.
