    Director: Mikkel Nørgaard
    Original Title: Klovn: The Movie
    Language: Danish

    Main Cast: Frank Hvam, Casper Christensen

    The most watched film in Denmark in 2010 with close to one million admissions, the Danes refer to the humour in Klown as ‘uncomfortable’, whereas the more popular description would be ‘offensive’, ‘politically incorrect’, ‘gross’ or ‘badass’. Take your pick. It is however, very funny and not surprisingly has been bought by multiple territories for re-make. Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen’s comic talents are on full glorious display in this picture, which chases down taboo after taboo. The basic plot revolves around Frank grudgingly taking his young, shy nephew on a canoeing trip to prove to his girlfriend that he can be a responsible dad. The series of disasters that follow are superbly scripted and realised with excellent production values — all that you would expect from a Zentropa-produced film. Badass funny.
