Review

Infectiously funny, visually striking and delightfully politically incorrect (and sometimes completely amoral) animated feature from Danish humourist Anders Matthesen. Although this is a classically constructed story with fairly conventional wrap-ups, the film is packed with original characters, events and dialogue throughout. It can be argued whether Terkel i knibe is a film suited for children (7 in Denmark/11 in Norway), but we all know the Danes as being thick-skinned people, so when uncle Stuart beats the shit out of the school punks, we can't help but enjoy it. For the Norwegian version actor Aksel Hennie has impressively voiced all characters.
