The actors play this darkly funny material as if they are in a deadly serious Shakespearean drama, highlighting the situation's many absurdities

Another delightful film from the Netherlands, this one about an oblivious priest and a Neo-Nazi who inadvertently finds redemption.

This Danish comedy, like most of that country's dramas, is dark, dark, dark. The film's humor offers an odd blend of subversively sly narrative mixed with bursts of sudden, sharp violence and goofy slapstick.

This oddball story is more than a one-joke concept. Its characters are sometimes cruel, sometimes sweet, but always recognizably human.

Jensen is an accomplished screenwriter with a knack for developing people amid comic nonsense.

For most of its length it's wonderfully wicked -- Jensen actually forces us to sympathize with the neo-Nazi's attitude toward the minister -- but the ending unfortunately mitigates the nastiness ...

Strong direction, solid acting, and a script as crisp and juicy as freshly picked apples. A solid "A" film.

Director Jensen (who co-scripted After the Wedding) breaks away from Dogme to make a more stylized film, using a controlled surface that disarms us with surreal happenings and well-executed absurdity.

Deliciously profane, dark and somber, Denmark's Adam's Apples is fiendishly ripe for the picking.

Pushes the boundaries of weirdness, yet manages to be a moving look into faith and redemption.

The path that Jensen plots is one full of the improbable and unlikely, but never the impossible.

As intelligent as it is entertaining, and it's the source of great good humor.

Designed to elicit as many gasps as laughs, Anders Thomas Jensen's pitch-black comedy offers an audaciously skewed take on good vs. evil.

Peculiar but oddly winsome fable about the spiritual journeys of two diametrically opposed characters.

For all its roughhouse antics, Adam's Apples is almost improbably sweet: a rude comedy that the devout and heathen alike can hold to their breasts.

With the most bizarre characters we have seen in film for quite some time, this strange comedy leaves the viewer constantly off- balance.

Features some nice humor, dry as an Empire apple left to wither and brown at room temperature, its juice sucked out but still pleasant to the taste.
