BT-09. Wild Men
Denmark, Feature Film, 2021, 104 min
Many can relate to Martin’s yearning for a pure and simple way of life, off-grid, close to nature and far from consumerism. Emulating his Viking ancestors (and lying to his wife about being away at a corporate team-building seminar), Martin follows his mid-life crisis north to the Scandinavian forests, armed only with his homemade bow and arrows, along with an ensemble of animal skins. But Martin’s arrows are woefully ineffective at killing fresh game, so out of desperation, he steals food and becomes a wanted man. A chance meeting with a fugitive named Musa leads to a twisted trip through the fjords with police, drug runners and Martin's family not far behind. As an unlikely friendship develops, Martin's quest for manhood leads to deep and hilariously uncomfortable realizations about the presumed masculine ideal. Subtitled.
Fargo-esque…Wild Men is primarily a comedy and a side-splitting one at that. Film Threat
