Elias (Mads Mikkelsen) and Gabriel (David Dencik) are two special-natured brothers. Upon their father's passing, the brothers find out, through the father's will, that they were adopted. Despite their differences, Elias and Gabriel decide to seek out their natural father and set out to the remote island where he lives.

Awful, unfunny, pervy drama - not a single laugh here - Men and Chicken review by PV

Spoiler Alert
25/09/2016

Gosh this film is dreadful. Now, I am rather fond of black humour and the darker the better. But this just fails on all counts. The plot is risible. The story is dull. The supposed shock value wallows in a puddle of tedium. And basically this is 90 minutes of my life I'm never getting back.

Now, some Scandi movies are great. But this isn't. Avoid.

No stars.

Weird in a forced way - Men and Chicken review by PR

Spoiler Alert
23/01/2018

This film is meant to be funny, but fails dismally. It could have been an intriguing plot very relevant to our century but in spite of a token effort and interesting message toward the very end (won't spoil it), it fails dismally. I'm patently not in tune with Danish humour.

quirky mystery with taxidermy slapstick - Men and Chicken review by JS

Spoiler Alert

I wasn't really entirely "with it" as a comedy but the production design, costumes, make up and CG are quality, and it's got some neat concepts and direction, worth a watch.
