A mash-up of Dr. Mengele's experiments, a Cocorosie music video, a Bruce Conner's installation, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre which raises the bar in the bestiality genre. There is definitely something rotten in Denmark.
This thing is trying. Trying. To the extent that it risks herniating itself. But also strangely bland. The real problem is that it wants to be wacky and fancy free, but you can see it setting all its meager ducks (chickens?) in a row from a mile a way. Contrivance. I could feel this stupid thing trying to entertain me. Made me sad. Also: same kind of airy-fairy humanism that was on display in Adam's Apples. Blech.
Mads is amazing. At absolutely no time do you feel like he is going to eat his brothers, despite how tasty they might be. As ashamed as you might be of your family, remember that you can always put them in a cage.
Not as funny as I expected, but for that a lot smarter. I usually don't like it when in the end all answers are given, but this time it was worth it. This weird movie about a freak family goes well off the limits regarding good taste but when the secrets are revealed, it all makes sense. Even the excessive masturbation.
A comedy that takes place entirely in the background, in both frame and text. The script is wishy-washy, as neat and obvious as a fable, but it comes alive on screen due to committed performances and said use of horror foreground, humour back. Watched this with friends and it was effective, in a juvenile way. The dream set-up pays off.
Deeply dissapointed...As i remember, Adams apples was much more funny and meaningful in intelectual way. The main idea about acceptance probably nice, but definitely possible to find another form to express it. To much absurd does not make comedy "darker".
