A new UK poster and trailer have arrived online for writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen’s upcoming comedy Men & Chicken, which stars Mads Mikkelsen, David Dencik, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Søren Malling and Nicolas Bro. Take a look below…
Two outcast brothers get to know their biological family and discover the horrible truth about themselves and their relatives.
Gabriel (David Dencik) and Elias (Mads Mikkelsen) are two very different brothers. Gabriel is a worn down university professor and Elias is a man whose only concern is women and trivial knowledge. During a lecture Gabriel receives a phone call. Their father is dead. Things take a turn when the brothers learn through a videotape recorded by their now late father, that he in fact wasn’t their biological father. Gabriel and Elias discover that their biological father lives on the island Ork. They set out to the island and here they meet their real family. The brothers’ first meeting with the family doesn’t go as expected. Gabriel and Elias are stranded in the marshland of Ork. Here they meet the mayor of Ork and his daughter Ellen, a neurotic woman who hates her life, herself, her father and the island. Surrounded by abnormal people, Gabriel and Elias discover the truth about themselves and their relatives. A truth that while paralyzing them also sets them free.
Men & Chicken is set for release on April 22nd in the States and in June in the UK.
