Storyline

Gabriel and Elias are two very different brothers. Gabriel is a worn down university professor and Elias is a man whose only concern is women and trivial knowledge. During a lecture Gabriel receives a phone call. Their father is dead. Things take a turn when the brothers learn through a videotape recorded by their now late father, that he in fact wasn't their biological father. Gabriel and Elias discover that their biological father lives on the island Ork. They set out to the island and here they meet their real family. The brothers' first meeting with the family doesn't go as expected. Gabriel and Elias are stranded in the marshland of Ork. Here they meet the mayor of Ork and his daughter Ellen, a neurotic woman who hates her life, herself, her father and the island. Surrounded by abnormal people, Gabriel and Elias discover the truth about themselves and their relatives. A truth that while paralyzing them also sets them free. Written by Anders Thomas Jensen

Chicken and Egg ... I mean Men
4 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

I don't even know where to begin with this. It's so far out, that if you're not expecting what is going to happen (as in not having seen the trailer or read the synopsis), you'll be blown away. Though even with some knowledge this should work wonders on ones brain. Just the fact that Mads Mikkelsen is in it, should be enough for anyone who's not familiar with the other cast members or the director to give it a go.

Having said that, the humor won't be everyones taste. Actually some might not even consider many things happening as funny. They might label them with other things and words. But if you like humor that is quite quirky and weird, you will relish and cherish this. Although I wouldn't say the movie can be viewed as big twist movie, I didn't see things coming ... even the ones that were right there to put together!
