|Men & Chicken – Trailer
Men &Â ChickenÂ is a darkly hilarious slapstick comedy starring Mads Mikkelsen (â€œHannibal,â€� ingeniously cast against type) about a pair of socially-challenged siblings who discover they are adopted half-brothers in their late father’s videotaped will. Their journey in search of their true father takes them to the small, insular Danish island of Ork, where they stumble upon Â three additional half-brothersâ€”each also sporting hereditary harelips and lunatic tendenciesâ€”living in a dilapidated mansion overrun by barn animals. Initially unwelcome by their newfound kin, the two visitors stubbornly wear them down until theyâ€™re reluctantly invited to stay. As the misfit bunch get to know each other, they unwittingly uncover a deep family secret that ultimately binds them together.
