Wild Men
(31 January 2023)

Thomas Daneskov | Denmark | 2021 | 15 | 104 mins | Danish | Trailer

Martin’s mid-life crisis sees him fleeing from his family in Denmark for a life as a Viking hunter-gatherer in the remote and inhospitable mountains of Norway. There he runs into fugitive drug dealer Musa and a very Scandi caper/comedy/drama ensues with naïve rebel Martin and his companion Musa attempting to evade bungling drug dealers, hapless police, fellow Vikings and Martin’s wife! Poking gentle fun at
middle-aged masculinity with dry, deadpan humour but also with empathy; Wild Men’s twisty plot and sympathetic performances make it both warm and wickedly funny.
