Men and Chicken (15)

Men and Chicken (15)

Comedy, Drama, Mystery

Two outcast brothers, through getting to know their unknown family, discover a horrible truth about themselves and their relatives.

The critical consensus

When the film reveals all its secrets, the result is a poignant ode to the sanctity of human life, no matter how compromised the gene pool may be.

****(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 11/07/2016

The performances are excellent. The actors capture the boorishness and animalistic side of their characters, but also their vulnerability in the face of a world that makes such little sense to them.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 13/07/2016

There is much black humour and people getting hit with stuffed animals in this macabre comedy from the writer of In a Better World.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 14/07/2016

Hilarious in places, hideous in others, this struggles to make its philosophical case. But the performances are exceptional and the conceit could not be more daring or distinctive.

****(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 14/07/2016

This Danish film steers the right side of wackiness in its tale of two strange brothers meeting their estranged extended family.
