Adam's Apples- 2005, starring a bunch of foreign actors
Leonard says- Ineffectual black-comedy allegory about a clash of wills between Ivan (Mikkelsen), a hard-luck soul who embraces religion and is in denial about the existence of evil, and Adam (Thomsen), a hardened career criminal and neo-Nazi. Means to be profound, as it deals with the nature of good and evil, but it's merely overwrought. 2 stars.
I say- Man what a snoozer. For me, a subtitled film has to be REALLY interesting for me to enjoy it (Oldboy, Pan's Labyrinth) and this is not one of them. Avoid. BOMB.
