Danish Black Comedy WILD MEN Set For Theatrical Release in UK

Wild Men

If the Coen brothers made a film in Danish it might look a little like Wild Men. Thomas Daneskov’s immensely entertaining mid-life crisis crime caper is shot through with comic moments and set amid the spectacular scenery of the Norwegian wilderness.

Martin (Rasmus Bjerg, Sons of Denmark) has fled his family and the modern world to head into the woods and live off the land, as his manly ancestors would have done… he even has a homemade Viking costume. His encounter with injured drug smuggler Musa (Zaki Youssef, Sons of Denmark) marks the start of a beautiful friendship spent evading cops, criminals and cold, hard reality, which his concerned wife (Sofie Gråbøl, The Killing) seeks to bring him back to.

Thomas Daneskov’s black comedy is a razor-sharp meditation on masculinity and mental illness in modern times, and has screened at major film festivals including Tribeca Film Festival, Neuchatel International Fantastic Film Festival, Fantasia Film Festival and Glasgow Film Festival.

Blue Finch Film Releasing presents Wild Men in cinemas 6th May 2022.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
