4TH INT'L WAYNE FEDERMAN FILM FEST: Klown (presented by Sacha Baron Cohen)

“HANDS DOWN THE FUNNIEST FILM OF THE YEAR…Plays like a superior, and way grosser, version of ‘The Hangover’.” — Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice

In a giddy, debaucherous Scandinavian NC-17-flavored take on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Klown (based upon the popular long-running TV show of the same name) follows two wildly inappropriate friends (internationally celebrated comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen) as they run amok through the Danish countryside, plowing through social taboos and unspeakable degeneracy. The odd couple pals have opposing agendas for their upcoming camping trip: Casper is determined to visit a mysterious world-renowned brothel as the final stop on his “Tour de Pussy,” while Frank, attempting to prove his fatherhood potential to his girlfriends kidnaps his nephew to join them. As these confrontational and consistently unpredictable Dogme-95-meets-the-Farrelly-Brothers plotlines collide, Klown will leave you hurting from nonstop laugh fits and genuinely shocked by several denouements you’ll never have seen coming. When we screened Klown a couple years ago, it received some of the most prolonged, intense outbursts of audience laughter we’ve ever clocked. Sacha Baron Cohen will appear in person to present the film!
Dir. Mikkel Nørgaard, 2010, DCP, 93 min.
