Men & Chicken

An off-kilter Danish comedy from Anders Thomas Jensen, Men & Chicken is a story about two brothers whose search for their biological father ends in strange, outrageous hilarity.

After meeting to bury their recently deceased father, brothers Elias, a self-described ladies’ man, and Gabriel, a depressed academic with a history of failed relationships, learn via videotape that their real father is a famous but demonized geneticist. Determined to meet their biological father, Elias and Gabriel set off for his estate on the minimally populated Danish island Ork. Upon arriving, Elias and Gabriel discover they have three brothers who share strikingly similar deformities, a problem with anger management, and some distinct eccentricities. Confronted with the prevailing strangeness across Ork and its inhabitants, Gabriel seeks to uncover the truth about what really happened to their mothers, and what his father was really up to in his research lab. Absurdly hilarious, complete with a daring performance from Mads Mikkelsen, Men & Chicken may equally offend and delight its audiences.
