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

    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.

    Peculiar but oddly winsome fable.
  4. 63
    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.
  5. 50
    The melodramas that prolific Anders Thomas Jensen has sculpted over the years have been among the richest works to come out of Scandinavia since Bergman's heyday. But no road is without its pockmarks and Adam's Apples may be the low point of the wunderkind's career.
  6. Smart-aleck comedy and spirituality aren't incompatible, but in Adam's Apples they cancel each other out.
  7. 25
    The characters are too cliched to be funny, and Jensen's script can't stay focused long enough to make an impression. Where is Lars von Trier when we need him?

    I found it beautiful and funny I didn't see it as uplifting since it was a dark comedy and god hates the main character so I don't I found it beautiful and funny I didn't see it as uplifting since it was a dark comedy and god hates the main character so I don't understand the critics remarks.
