Event Information

Martin’s version of a mid-life crisis looks a little different than most. Hilariously ill-equipped to live off the land, yet clad in a Neanderthal-like ensemble of animal skins, he wanders the Norwegian forest in a misguided attempt to find a sense of purpose and independence, a wife and two children back at home be damned. But when he crosses paths with an injured drug dealer, he finds an unlikely ally in his quest for ‘manhood’. 

Chock full of colourful characters and ingeniously original set pieces, filmmaker Thomas Daneskov co-writes and directs this Coen-esque black comedy. With countless clever twists that continuously make clear the foolishness of erroneous masculinity, Wild Men surprises with each new, perfectly played turn.
