About this event

A razor-sharp, Coen Brothers-esque, black comedy. Martin’s version of a mid-life crisis looks a little different than most. Hilariously ill-equipped to live off the land and yet clad in Viking like animal skins, he wanders the forest in a misguided attempt to regain his independence. But when he crosses paths with an injured drug dealer, he finds an unlikely ally in his quest for “manhood.” The duo begins a beautiful friendship spent evading police, criminals, and the cold hard reality which the world seeks to bring them back to. Premiering at Tribeca Film Festival, Wild Men is an original take on a comedic crime caper.

Both funny and gently moving.
What makes this amiably amusing Danish comedy work is the fact that it takes its hapless protagonist almost as seriously as he takes himself.
★★★★ Wendy Ide, Observer
