(aka "Klovn: The Movie" )

 

directed by Mikkel Nørgaard
Denmark 2010

 

Formulaic yet irreverently raunchy and genuinely funny, KLOWN: THE MOVIE - based on the 2005-2009 Danish TV series of the same name - follows the travails of Frank (writer Frank Hvam) to prove his "fatherhood potential" when his girlfriend Mia (Mia Lyhne) is pregnant and had not told him because she has her doubts about his abilities as a parent. She is not unjustified in her doubts since Frank leaves her nephew Bo (Marcuz Jess Petersen) - staying with them while his remarried mother is on her honeymoon - behind when a prowler breaks into their house. An incensed Mia means to take Bo with her to his grandparents' but Frank ends up with that task when attempts to give her a "pearl necklace" (look it up) but tends up temporarily blinding her mother. Desperate to prove that he can be a good father, he kidnaps Bo and takes him along on his planned camping trip with best friend Casper (Casper Christensen) hoping to work in some wholesome activities in what is actually Casper's "Tour de Pussy" including a bit of camping (and sex with high school girls), some drug use at a music festival, and climaxing in a visit to the "Alley Cat" brothel (an EYES WIDE SHUT-esque establishment that only opens for one night a year.

Comments

Although barebones, Arrow Films has given this Danish production a dual-layer encode and have also preserved the original 5.1 mix in Dolby Digital (unlike some of their TV acquisitions). The transfer is attractive for the most part, but subject to the limitations of the production (the music festival scenes are not as slick-looking, but the camera work also adapts a more shaky-cam, zoom-happy approach during these captured-on-the-go scenes). The 5.1 track is largely restrained until the music festival scenes where it explodes to life.

The only extras are a trio of start-up trailers. Some contextual information on the TV series on which it is based would have been nice to one could judge whether it was an adaptation of the show's storylines, a direct continuation of them, a suitable resolution to the show or even a tangential companion piece.

An Image Entertainment, Region 'A', Blu-ray of Klown HERE is available.
