Brothers Gabriel and Elias are themselves rather odd, the former a depressed academic and the latter a frustrated loner with an overactive libido. But wait till you meet the others! Discovering that their father is not in fact their father, Gabriel and Elias travel to the remote island of Ork in search of their biological parent. There they encounter three half-brothers they knew nothing of, living in a decaying, ramshackle mansion. Cue casual slapstick violence, bizarre obsessions cheerfully indulged and the revelation of a peculiarly warped family tree! Breaking box-office records in Denmark, “Men and Chicken” is a genre defying film which will have you laughing out loud one moment, then gasping and cringing in disbelief the next. Politically correct it is not!
