Hilarious. Shocking. Moving. Profound. ADAM’S APPLES is all those things, while also being a work of compelling theological weight. An eccentric biblical allegory of a black comedy that takes endlessly surprising risks, this is the masterpiece of Anders Thomas Jensen’s celebrated filmography (most recently expanded with this year’s fantastic RIDERS OF JUSTICE), his strongest work in both screenwriting and direction. Jailed neo-Nazi Adam (Ulrich Thomsen) is granted an early probation in exchange for participating in a rural rehab program led by an impossibly optimistic priest (the great Mads Mikkelsen), surrounded by deeply troubled outcasts and criminals. To reveal any more would be a sin. Winner of no less than 20 awards on the International festival circuit.
