The sex and filial troubles of 308-pound persons are not exactly common. But Matthiesen has evoked both the pathos and courage in these troubles, and, with the help of this reticent giant, explores them enticingly.
This wispy story is distinguished by its sweetness of spirit, and it comes straight from Kold.
A heart-wrenching central performance anchors Mads Matthiesen's intimate, empathetic drama about a Danish bodybuilder who aims to grow up as he nears middle age.
Matthiesen and his cast have created a believable space, and that ultimately helps give Teddy Bear the tension of a fine suspense film once Kold sits down across the kitchen table from Steentoft to speak his mind at last.
A largely likable tale about a 38-year-old man-child trying finally to grow up.
A sweetly muted domestic drama struggling to contain a fierce and ancient folk tale.
Its hulking gentle giant non-professional acting star, the real-life bodybuilder Kim Kold, brings the muscles, heart and sensitivity to his role.
A straight-forward telling of an affecting, devastatingly funny tale, topped by a magnificent lead performance from Kim Kold as Ken, the gentle giant.
Not exactly a movie about lurid sex tourism, though coming awfully close, the film does risk credibility at times with a protagonist so out of touch, that he seems to hardly have a clue about the difference between hookers and potential housewives.
Kim Kold's Dennis is such an unconventional character it's not hard to be drawn into his world.
