A gang of 4 Danish criminals are ordered by Færingen to steal a bag from a safe. When they see DKK4,000,000 in the bag, they keep it for themselves and head for Spain. They end up in a ruin of an old restaurant on Funen and renovate it.
Four small-time gangsters from Copenhagen trick a gangster boss: they take over 4,000,000 kroner which they were supposed to bring him. Trying to escape to Barcelona they are forced to stop in the countryside, in an old, wrecked house, hiding there for several weeks. Slowly, one after another, they realize, that they would like to stay there, starting a new life, renovating the house and forming it into a restaurant. But they can't avoid being caught up by their past.Written by

The guy bringing the cigarettes "from Poland" in the beginning of the movie does not at all speak Polish, but is actually speaking Russian. See more »
Arne, for fuck's sake... can't we have something else besides these freezer pizzas? We've been eating the same shit for a week now, man.
Who fixed the oven? I did, right? You fix your own oven! You cook your own dinner and shut the fuck up!... fucking vegetables and all sorts of goodies on this!
[Tosses the pizza across the room]
Don't wanna fucking eat this shit anymore, man!

Hollywood - Go Home!!!
This is one of the funniest movies I have seen for a long time - and yet with a depth you would not expect from a movie like this. This bunch of criminal outcast with personal problems and skeletons in their childhood cupboards manage to form a true friendship and community far from the environment they are used to.
The movie is stacked with strong action and actors: Pilmark is over the top as raw, but yet soft gangleader, Mikkelsen as psycho-gunman, Thomsen as TV-drama-loving drug-addict and Lie-Kaas as the eternal snack-eating soft guy. Even the supporting cast does a good job - just to mention Thestrup as the weapon-crazy farmer and Helmuth as movie history's greatest alcoholic doctor - and do not forget Graaboel as Lie-Kaas annoying and "normal" girlfriend.
Funniest scene: shooting cows in the forest - my God, I was rolling on the floor of laughter.
