Wild Men

Thomas Daneskov Mikkelsen, Denmark, 2021

101 min.DK/FeatureComedy

In a desperate attempt to cure his midlife crisis, Martin has fled his family to live high up in the Norwegian mountains. Hunting and gathering like his ancestors did thousands of years ago before supermarkets and smartphones ruined everything. But Martins self-actualisation project is turned upside down when he meets Musa, a drug runner lost deep in the woods, injured and bleeding after a car accident. The odd couple must join forces, as they are chased through the wilderness by the local chief of police, Musa’s rivals and Martin’s unknowing wife.
