Men and Chicken (2016)
Friday 12th August 2016
When brothers Elias (Mads Mikkelsen; Casino Royale, The Hunt, TV's Hannibal) and Gabriel (David Dencik; The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) discover they are in fact adopted, they travel to a remote island to meet their biological father and brothers for the first time.
While Gabriel tries to civilise the family of outcasts, Elias finds he fits right in with them. But they soon realise there's something strange about the brothers - not to mention a mystery surrounding the identities of their mothers and their father's unusual scientific experiments.
Could it be their father was keeping a bizarre secret? Is there more to the brothers than they know themselves? And how is it all be connected to the strange animals that also live on the island?
Mads Mikkelsen proves once again that he's one of Europe's top on-screen talents. From the mind of celebrated Danish filmmaker Anders Thomas Jensen (The Green Butchers), this dark comedy is hilarious but often bizarre, packed with razor-sharp dialogue and oddball characters - all brought to life by a stellar cast of character actors, recognisable from hit Scandi television shows.
A success on its U.S. release and number one hit in Denmark, Men & Chicken is the most unique and disturbing comedy you'll see this year.
