Men & Chicken  Denmark / 104 mins

In this hilarious and outrageously twisted comedy, Mads Mikkelsen (“Hannibal”, Casino Royale)––now an A-list Hollywood star and debonair leading man––allows his long-time collaborator and Danish filmmaking icon Anders Thomas Jensen to transform him into Elias, one of the least appealing humans ever to shine on the silver screen.

Upon their father’s passing, Elias and his slightly better-adjusted brother Gabriel (David Dencik, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) discover that they are adopted. In search for their real parents, they stumble upon three new brothers who are living in an abandoned and decaying island sanatorium, each varying degrees of strange and none quite capable of living a normal life in Danish society. To make matters even more unsettling for Gabriel and Elias, their new brothers have a penchant for unexpected blunt-force head trauma. And there’s something about the chickens wandering the off-limits basement that’s more than a little bit foreboding...a paralyzing, yet liberating, secret of both Men & Chicken.
