  1. Jensen tarnishes the lining of every cloud in one wickedly funny scene after another.

    The movie is one long pose. But it develops into an idea slightly greater than its flippancy. The steady frenzy is whipped into a roux of two reasonably developed characters.

    Peculiar but oddly winsome fable.
  4. This Danish comedy, like most of that country's dramas, is dark, dark, dark.

    When the most sympathetic character in your comedy is a skinhead, you’re definitely on to something, and Jensen definitely is here.

    This oddball story, written and directed by Anders Thomas Jen sen, whom Dogme followers might remember from his screenplay for the 1999 hit "Mifune," is more than a one-joke concept. Its characters are sometimes cruel, sometimes sweet, but always recognizably human.

    A funny, politically incorrect and, somewhere deep down, thoughtful black comedy, Adam's Apples is the third and final film in helmer-writer Anders Thomas Jensen's excellent trilogy centered on oddballs and misfits in Denmark.
