2015, Drafthouse Films, 104 min, Denmark/Germany, Dir: Anders Thomas Jensen

Elias (an unrecognizable Mads Mikkelsen) and Gabriel (David Dencik) are brothers with seemingly little in common bar cleft palates and hilariously perverted sexual compulsions. When they discover that their biological father is still alive and holed up on a remote island, the pair set off to bond with the father they never knew. But what they find are three new brothers and the darkest family secrets imaginable. Jensen’s assured direction and madcap script offers the blackest comedy imaginable and introduces viewers to the most twisted family since Manson creepy-crawled through Topanga. “Staggering … tonally astounding and genre-confounding.” - Peter Debruge, Variety. In Danish with English subtitles.
