| Superb Danish Comedy
Gabriel and Elias are brothers, but they look nothing like each other save for a hair lip. Gabriel is a down at heart professor and Elias is a man who has a way with the ladies – the wrong one that is and a need for a lot of 'tension relief'. They are both a bit odd – to say the least.

Then their father 'pops his clogs' (well the film is Danish) and leaves the 'boys' a VHS message. In it they discover that he is not their biological father and that their real daddy lives on some remote island and is a bit of a scientist or something. Anyway with no time left to lose the lads decide they have to trace their real family – and so the fun begins.

Now this has some belly laugh moments and Mads Mikkelsen seems to relish the role. Then so does everyone else too and it must have been great fun to make. It is a pretty dark comedy in places but it also has a fair smattering of slapstick too. There is also a great story with lots of fun, truisms and heart. Written by Anders Thomas Jensen who brought us 'Green Butchers' and many more – this is one of those films that you will tell your friends is a must see.
