Critic Reviews for Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns)
It's a twisted existential grotesque that wrings thought-provoking pathos and even affection for the lunatics running the menagerie, no mean feat.
Occasionally rib tickling but more often gut churning, this turns largely on the spectacle of Mikkelsen, a respected dramatic actor and a Bond villain no less, being cast as a furiously dyspeptic nerd who keeps running off somewhere to masturbate.
While this isn't the best movie you'll ever see, for the curious it's worth exploring.
You can't accuse "Men & Chicken" of false advertising: There are men and there are chickens.
Audience Reviews for Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns)
A bit of a sci-fi family drama as two entirely different adopted brothers look for and find the old familial stomping grounds ... only to be faced with the ugly reality that its not quite up to expectations. Late in the film we all discover the reason why, but not before the brothers are faced not only with their differences but with bonding in spite of them. There's heart in this mess, which may be the point of all families, eh?
Mads Mikkelsen is priceless - and nearly unrecognizable with a cleft lip, fake teeth and an eccentric composition - in this hilarious comedy that feels like a darkly humored mix of The Island of Dr. Moreau and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but the ending feels a bit off.
