THE LIGHTER SIDE

Men & Chicken

Mænd & høns

ANDERS THOMAS JENSEN
Denmark, 2015
104 minutes, Color
Official website

Men & Chicken, an uproarious comedy starring Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) that has broken box-office records in Denmark, is about a pair of socially challenged, bumbling, harelipped siblings who discover in their late father's videotaped will that they are adopted half-brothers. Their journey in search of their true father takes them to a remote island, where they stumble upon three additional half-brothers—each also sporting hereditary harelips and lunatic tendencies—living in a dilapidated mansion overrun by barn animals. Initially unwelcome by their newfound kin, the two visitors stubbornly wear them down until they're reluctantly invited to stay. As the misfit bunch get to know each other, they unwittingly uncover a deep family secret that ultimately binds them together.—Various sources

In Danish with English subtitles
