2 slow brothers rent a house next to their landlord in the Danish countryside. A young woman stays for Christmas. A creditor living there makes some spiked candy, resulting in chaotic Xmas days for all.
Dennis and Carl are brothers who live on a small farm in the Danish countryside. None too bright, Dennis wants a girlfriend for Christmas. Carl makes sure that Dennis gets just that when he meets Rita at the local pub. She is on the run from her husband and she doesn't turn down the chance to hide away at Carl and Dennis's place.Written by
The scene where Sidse Babett Knudsen wakes up in bed next to a severed foot and suddenly regains the ability to speak, was all ad-libbed after she and the director decided that her character Rita needed some more personality. There wasn't time to add to the script, so she had to make up additional dialogue herself while filming. See more »
During the opening credits several names are misspelled, to be corrected using an arrow or inserting letters. Example Niels Arden Oplev's first name is written Neils and then an arrow indicates that ei should be switched. The title is misspelled twice, and then crossed out with a line, before the real title appears. See more »

Coen for Danish Hicks Only!
For foreigners not used to Danish comedy, or to Von Trier specialties only, this picture may seem strange and vulgar. However, we the boys from the countryside, recognize and appreciate the accuracy in the whole cast of characters in this picture, and loudly laughs it so out in the darkness of the cinema. This is a real Danish comedy for hicks, rednecks and others who enjoy good morbid humor, nasty language etc.
