Storyline

Two tradesmen, Ib and Edward, are tired of their lifeless marriages and dream of living the good life from the stash of money they've earned moonlighting over the years. After a huge fight with their wives the two men get drunk and hire a Russian contract killer to do a hit on their spouses. But they have badly underestimated their wives, and this becomes the start of an absurd journey where, to their own horror, Ib and Edward end at the top of a kill list.

A dark quirky comedy
20 August 2017 | by SFZSee all my reviews

This is a dark quirky comedy taking place in a rural area of Denmark, very much in the style of Blinkende Lygter/Flickering Lights (2000) and Adams Æbler/Adam's Apples (2005).

In many of the scenes we follow either one or the other of two pairs of actors. The husbands pair are two friends and colleagues played Ulrich Thomsen and Nicolas Bro. Their wives played by Mia Lyhne and Lene Maria Christensen make up the other team. They are supported well by Marcin Dorocinski, Søren Malling and Gwen Taylor as well as Elsebeth Steentoft, Birthe Neumann and Ole Thestrup in smaller roles.

At just 86 minutes playing time it has a very fitting length for a comedy and is one of those movies I really can't find any fault with. It turned out to be exactly the kind of movie it advertises to be. I really enjoyed it and was well entertained all the way through and had some really good laughs on the way.

Good job Ole Bornedal, you're almost forgiven for the 1864 TV-series!

8/10
