On May 20th Films We Like is proud to present the new raccous Danish comedy MEN & CHICKEN, opening at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.

"A hybrid of The Three Stooges comedy and the lunacy of ‘The Island of Dr. Moreau." ~

"Denmark's most twisted family tree since 'Hamlet.'" ~ Variety

MEN & CHICKEN is a darkly hilarious slapstick comedy starring Mads Mikkelsen (“Hannibal,” ingeniously cast against type) about a pair of socially-challenged siblings who discover they are adopted half-brothers in their late father's videotaped will. Their journey in search of their true father takes them to the small, insular Danish island of Ork, where they stumble upon three additional half-brothers—each also sporting hereditary harelips and lunatic tendencies—living in a dilapidated mansion overrun by barn animals. Initially unwelcome by their newfound kin, the two visitors stubbornly wear them down until they’re reluctantly invited to stay. As the misfit bunch get to know each other, they unwittingly uncover a deep family secret that ultimately binds them together.

This inventively bizarre and outlandish comedy is directed by acclaimed, Oscar-winning director Anders Thomas Jensen and also stars David Dencik (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo).
