Dark Horse is an offbeat comedy about an irresponsible but charming young graffiti artist who doesn’t care even though everybody is trying to track him down: Parking attendants, landlords, bills and the police. He falls in love with Franc, a girl just as irresponsible and charming as he is.

Dyslexic, penniless street artist and his best friend - an aspiring soccer referee - fall for the same girl. A Danish attempt at screwball comedy starts off interestingly enough but gets increasingly depressing as its quirky humour gets too dry (and rarefied) for comfort. Not recommended unless one is a fan of slackers - although the happy ending does redeem some of its self-indulgent meanderings.
Peculiar historia bellamente fotografiada en blanco y negro, de tono estrafalario y un humor escandinavo entrañable e ingenioso, con una narrativa de galope sostenido que sumerge de principio a fin en las circunstancias de unos personajes memorables que desbordan poesía en su totalidad. Una oda a la vida moderna. Un clásico inmediato para este siglo y el anterior.
this was almost like watching a dream unravel before your eyes with it's charming yet realistic characters and their lives which all sort of start to happen at once. it was composed of whimsy and the idea of just being and that's what made it great.
From the beginning it strongly felt like a modern version of 'I Am Curious', only the politics are much more subtle, and this works to the film's advantage: it's light-hearted, incredibly funny, honest, and beautiful. The style of 'Dark Horse' is something many young American directors are trying to accomplish, and almost invariably fail at: a great lesson on handling humour from the Scandinavians.
A wildly irresponsible graffiti artist meets an equally odd and irresponsible young woman and start a romance despite his friend's infatuation with her. An amiably quirky comedy that descends into melodrama and a weird meandering plot in the last half hour. Ultimately, not really worth the time it takes to watch it.
It has a few particular scenes which are moving. but apart from this, when we look at the whole or the feeling which it leaves at the end is not satisfying. but it is not a bad thing. like life itself.
With a interesting mixture of low comedy acts and smart sarcasm over silly things once thought to be important, this story results in a light drama about muddled lives. The main character leads an unpretentious reckless life which is quite enjoyable to follow in expectation for the moment when he finally finds something to care about.
