Opening 17 Mar 2005
In this Danish film by Lasse Spang Olsen, Harald returns from a prison stint to find that his two designated accomplices are more interested in a cooking contest than crime. He revives their criminal thinking, and their first deed is to free Ludvig, whose father needs a kidney transplant.
I don’t understand why this film was so long in coming back to Hamburg after the 2002 FilmFest Hamburg. It was one of my favorite films for the black humor (Ludvig is a hilarious serial killer – which is hard to imagine), the bit parts (a spaced-out girl with worse problems than bank robbers) and the dialogue full of snappy quips.
