“The title might hint at where this brilliant new black comedy from the outrageous mind of Anders Thomas Jensen is going to head, but you won’t have seen anything like it before. Starring Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) and breaking box office records on its release in Denmark, Men & Chicken is about two hapless man-fail brothers who head to a dilapidated mansion on a remote island to meet their biological father – and their three seriously eccentric siblings. . .A riotously transgressive satire on family and eugenics that doubles as a surprisingly thoughtful meditation on what makes us human.”—Toronto International Film Festival.
