Adam's Apples (2005)

Comedy 1h 34m 2005

This Danish comedy, like most of that country’s dramas, is dark, dark, dark. The film’s humor offers an odd blend of subversively sly narrative mixed with bursts of sudden, sharp violence and goofy slapstick.” - Austin Chronicle

Ivan is an insanely optimistic preacher who takes in convicts to help around the remote, rural church he ministers to. His current charges are a psychotic Saudi immigrant addicted to robbing gas stations and an alcoholic tennis pro convicted of sexual assault. His newest “helper” is Adam, a vicious neo-Nazi anxiously biding his time before he can return to hell-raising. Asked to set a goal for his stay, Adam sarcastically answers that he’d like to bake a cake. Ivan cheerfully takes that statement at face value and puts him in charge of the parish’s pride and joy: the only apple tree in the vicinity. Grasping the extent of Ivan’s crazed, preternatural determination to look on the bright side of everything, Adam immediately decides to shake him out of his rose-colored stupor.
