Men of the Wild

Thomas Daneskov Mikkelsen, Denmark, 2021

110 min.DK/FeatureComedy

In a desperate attempt to cure his midlife crisis, Martin has run off from Denmark into the Norwegian mountains to live off the land as 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. And soon they are chased through the woods, by the local chief of police, Musa’s rivals and Martin’s unknowing wife.
