Movie Info

A successful IT salesman realizes that there's more to life than luxury and creature comforts after losing it all and being sentenced to work at a local recycling dump in director Rasmus Heide's socially conscious comedy. When it comes to IT sales, Jesper is number one. He prides himself on his work skills, and his entire life revolves around staying at the top of his game. After all, what could be better than having a lavish house, a beautiful wife, and a fat bank account? But Jesper is arrogant, and that unwavering hubris will soon be his downfall. After losing everything overnight, Jesper is sentenced to community service at a recycling dump and forced to work alongside the common people that he so despises. Common people like straight-shooting boss Theodore, daydreaming lesbian Lotte, and lazy worker Dion. At first Jesper is downright offended to be so closely associated with the working class, though before long he begins to recognize the profound beauty of the simple life. Later, after striking up a romance with a pretty girl, Jesper learns that the dump may soon have to shut down. If anyone can save the dump it's Jesper, and now that he's seen the light he'll do everything in his power to ensure that his newfound friends still have their jobs at the end of the day. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Blå mænd (Take the Trash)

Blå mænd is a screwball comedy from Denmark, featuring Thure Lindhardt. Surprisingly fresh and hilarious. Blå mænd explores the conflict of social classes and the revelation of one's weakness by using a bunch of over the top nutters to deliver the idea that life of working class may not be so bad after all. However, the film has a disappointing ending, but there was enough laughter and wit to compensate.

Jesper, surely has a perfect life until, he gets into a car accident, where he then has the choice to go to jail.. or serve community service. An interesting film for sure. Weird storyline, but also quite quirky. Definitely an enjoyable movie though! Fun to watch, and interesting! Quite an entertaining film, with interesting characters... Pretty darned humorous, as well, with of course, a particularly odd story to it.
