Trivia

The town in which the film was originally planned to take place, Hammel in East Jutland, turned out not to be eligible for support from the regional film fund (Den vestdanske filmpulje), so the location was changed to Nibe in North Jutland. See more »

Death Becomes Them
11 April 2018 | by thesar-2See all my reviews

In most horror movies, namely slashers, sex kills. In dark comedies, it's the opposite.

Wow. I kinda thought I might enjoy this experience, but had no idea how much I'd admire this film and writing. Don't think I've seen too many films from this country, but I'm definitely open-minded to other Area's art. And the more and more I discover, the more I see the world's kicking Hollywood's ass.

The synopsis isn't very easy this time around, which has to be the sign of a well-made movie. But, I'll try. Without spoiling too much, of course. There's a lot to discover and have fun with here.

Two not-so-great Danes are unhappy (pay attention to that point) due to lack of sex from their wives and consider divorce so they can somehow run off and have happy sex lives with different women. But, apparently unbeknownst to them and very known to their wives, their huge net worth comes into play with the women vowing to take more than their share in the proposed divorce. So, why not hire a hitman from Russia to kill them and then go off to live a nice, sex life elsewhere. What could possibly go wrong?

Literally, I just described 5% of the movie. It's basically Denmark's version of a Simon Pegg/Nick Frost screwball, albeit dark, comedy. Some might call it theft, I see it as an homage and someone putting their heart into honoring two obvious heroes of theirs.

I'm getting used to reading subtitles as the bulk of my films I see now are foreign (from the USA,) but dang it, these people spoke too fast! Before I could finish reading the statements below, they were onto their next quote. Mercifully, I could eventually follow both the words and the action/comedy and a good fourth was in English from the people called into to take care of their problems. (Yeah, people. It gets complicated and yet, all works well together.)

It covers a lot of ground, meaning, it's offensive to many cultures and types of people, but not necessarily going overboard or solving anything. Its heart is fine and the comedic moments made me laugh out loud more than a dozen or so times. Definitely recommended.

***

Final thoughts: Nicolas Bro aka Nick Frost was probably my favorite of the characters (next to Igor, the Russian Stereotype Hitman) and his refusal to shave in the later part of the movie (you'll see) had me rolling. I was just sad that more of his comedic talent didn't show up until then.
