Wild Men (2022)
The Regal Cinema’s World Cinema series presents the Danish film Wild Men.
Wild Men is a razor-sharp, Coen Brothers-esque, black comedy.
Martin, an ordinary suburban man, is experiencing a midlife crisis that looks a little different than most.
Hilariously ill-equipped to live off the land and yet clad in Viking-like animal skins, he wanders the forest in a misguided attempt to regain his independence. But when he crosses paths with an injured drug dealer, he finds an unlikely ally in his quest for “manhood.” The duo begin a beautiful friendship spent evading police, criminals, and the cold hard reality which the world seeks to bring them back to.
This film will be shown in Danish with English subtitles.
“Amiably amusing Danish comedy”
The Guardian ★★★★
“Wild Men avoids any whimsy to provide a surprisingly funny look at male disillusionment and the difficulty of achieving one’s hopes”
The Reviews Hub ★★★★
“A movie that suggests a dream-team collaboration of Hal Hartley and the Coen Brothers”
