I Kina spiser de Hunde

162 words on

They're 'only the cooks' in the film If you want to see an entertaining film that is both funny and contains needless violence, go and watch I Kina spiser de hunde (In China they eat dogs). As the title suggests, it's about a Danish bank clerk, Arvid, who prevents a robbery, feels bad about that and eventually tries to make up for it by robbing a money transport himself, getting himself, his brother and his brother's employees into and through a lot of trouble and a couple of people, including himself, killed in that way.

But none of that seems to matter. Arvid goes to heaven, his brother goes back to his restaurant and everything else is taken care of by the men in the funny trousers.

This doesn't make sense? No. It's still fun to watch. And actually a much more friendly film than the story would suggest. Perhaps it's because everything is better when it's Scandinavian.

And there even seems to be a sequel (or prequel?).
