DENMARK – 2010 – 90 MIN – COLOUR - FEATURE - IN DANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
A FILM BY MIKKEL NØRGAARD
In what critics are hailing as “the funniest movie of the year!” (IFC), KLOWN follows two wildly inappropriate friends — played by celebrated international comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen — as they run amok through the Danish countryside, plowing through endless awkward confrontations and unspeakable debaucheries.
Hopelessly wrongheaded Frank “kidnaps” the 12-year-old nephew of his pregnant girlfriend in an eager attempt to prove his fatherhood potential, and they join sex-crazed Casper on his secret adulterous weekend canoe trip. Rampaging through exclusive brothels, hospitalizations, armed robberies and even prison, the three paddle downstream from one chaotic misadventure to the next, all culminating in a surprisingly sentimental portrait of friendship and a final shocking reveal that you'll never be able to unsee.
“RAUNCHY. FEARLESS. AWESOME!”
—Eric Kohn, Indiewire
“HANDS DOWN THE FUNNIEST FILM OF THE YEAR...Plays like a superior, and way grosser, version of The Hangover."
—Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice
