An amazing movie that started out kind of slow, was rather disturbing in parts, funny in others and turned out awesome. I honestly didn't think turn-the-other-cheek love and gentleness would triumph over hate and meanness, but was reminded that persistent, unconditional love is a real powerful force. Another theme was the [Biblical] life of Job. So if you've ever been through one bad turn of events after another and you start to think God hates you, see this movie.

This is a great movie. A very well written script and great acting. I think you need to watch this movie twice. At times it can be so stupid\crazy and then so serious. You don’t know if you should be laughing or be serious. Very well done though. Worth the watch, twice!

Religious faith is tested by the Danish equivalent of the cast of Father Ted. The voice of reason may be the neo-Nazi skinhead, but it is impossible to be sure. This comedy is DEFINITELY NOT for everyone, but you might find yourself giggling or even tearing up a few times. Mads Mikkelsen speaks funny, solemn nonsense with a straight face, even after his nose is broken.

Although the content is rather disturbing, this is a well told Danish story. How can a good man take such punishment and turn the other cheek? "Adam's Apples" parallels the 'Book of Job' to the extreme.
