Storyline

A bittersweet comedy about one man's pursuit of a dream no more ridiculous than the times we live in, "Denmark" sees a down-on-his-luck Welshman without a job or access to hot water, who makes a decision to change his life for the better. With nothing to lose, and everything to gain, he travels across Europe with one crazy goal: to get himself arrested and sent to a Danish prison where the beds are warm and the water is hot.

Not really a comedy, but there are some funny moments. Filmmakers take note , this is John Cassavetes, ken Loach, Mike Leigh, John Sayles territory and its brilliant. You can make films like this for nothing, that are pitch perfect when describing the human condition. These kinds of films are really important. Anyone that has lived in Britain , in any of those depressed regions can relate to this film. I have gone through what the protagonist went through, and it is not for sissies. I watched this 3 nights ago and I have found myself reliving the scenes and dialog days later. This one stays with you. Everyone plays it well, the dog stole the show, and Rafe Spall is fabulous.
