Comedy Thriller | Denmark | 2021

Deep in a midlife crisis, Martin has decided to channel his inner Viking and to live off the land. Of course, he takes his mobile just in case and (in one hilarious scene) tries to stock up on supplies while paying in furs. His half-baked plan falls apart when he encounters the injured Musa who has both smugglers and police hot on his trail. Can Martin redeem himself to his exasperated wife after things take a deadly turn?

This Nordic comedy thriller excels in both aspects; its comedy is very funny indeed and the thriller elements are as exciting as any Hollywood blockbuster.
