Danish superstar Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round, SFF Summer Season 2021) stars in this furiously entertaining, wonderfully eccentric and big-hearted crime-comedy.
Markus (Mikkelsen) is a career soldier whose wife dies in a train “accident”. Otto, Lennart and Emmenthaler are socially awkward tech nerds who convince Markus that foul play was involved, and sign up to help him wipe out the perpetrators. Then there’s Markus’ teenage daughter Mathilde. She thinks the oddball trio are crisis counsellors helping her to connect with her emotionally stitched-up dad when she needs him most. Hilarious one moment, affecting the next and spectacularly action-packed in between, this fabulous rollercoaster ride marks the fifth and arguably best collaboration between Mikkelsen and Oscar-winning writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen.
The film’s significant humour comes from amusingly implausible situations coupled with rapid-paced droll dialogue; its equally sizable heart derives from the script’s respect for society’s outcasts.
Jay Weissberg, Variety
Salty, violent, transgressive, button-pushing, non-PC and laugh-out-loud funny at times – and when you’re not gasping or laughing, it’s only to wonder at the mind which pulled all of this together.
