Storyline

The life of 6th grader Terkel changes drastically when he causes the suicide of a girl who has a crush on him when he call her a fat cow. Suddenly he not only has to deal with his annoying little sister, his one-word father (No!), his mother's bizarre rants and his alcoholic and violent uncle Stewart, now he also has to deal with death threats from a stalker and his best friend distancing himself. On the plus side his two bullies think he is awesome and there is a new cool teacher, and he can of course always ask his uncle Stewart for help - kind of. It all culminates in a school trip.

Trivia

Based on the radio series of the same name which appeared in "Børneradio", a legendary and extremely long-running show for preteens and young teens (which is also noted for its very direct and un-PC approach to kids' entertainment). "Terkel i Knibe" was also released in CD form, and a couple of the songs have had heavy airplay. See more »

A danish masterpiece!
30 January 2012 | by wischerSee all my reviews

This is the best animated movie ever. I love the dark story hidden in a child looking animation. I laughed through the whole movie and I can watch it over and over again and still laugh. The rough danish humor combined with childish look makes this movie to a masterpiece. If you are expecting a lame child movie then you will get surprised. There is suicide, cursing, murder and murder attempt, bullying and much more. But all these dark sides becomes okay when the movie has these innocent child looking characters, and this makes it to a funny comedy instead of some tasteless crap. This is one of my favorite movies! i really recommend it. If you don't like it, then you don't have a sense for humor.
