Flickering Lights2001

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.8
Academy Award® winner Anders Thomas Jensen, whose style has been described as a cross between Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers, has pulled a stunner with FLICKERING LIGHTS, both shocking and funny, violent and gentle. It’s a brand new kind of gangster comedy about four childhood buddies whose screwed-up crimes turn out to have redeeming value. Torkild, a bumbling petty criminal, and his accomplices, dispatched by a mob boss to rob a diplomat, decide to flee with the loot and head for Barcelona. After their van breaks down in the Danish countryside, they find refuge in an abandoned building. Their leader, deciding that he’s tired of the criminal life, buys it in hopes of opening a restaurant. Even though his little gang of faithful buddies (who have never really grown up) has a depressing tendency to fail at all jobs, they unite in the effort and magically, incredibly, are able to turn their lives around.

What an utterly charming yet hyper violent movie. My wife and I laughed so hard we cried. Good Times.

There are some dated bits like a cell phone the size of a brick but this wild romp in the 'spasmobile' makes up for it all.

Great movie, very well done. I almost didn't watch it because I didn't think I felt like having to read subtitles. But the movie sucked me in so compleatly that at one point I found myself wondering when they had started speaking english. Of course they hadn't. It was just so good that I forgot that I was reading subtitles.

This movie's like the best of Coen Bros and Guy Ritchie. Funny, clever, and surprisingly touching.

Highly entertaining, very well done.

foreign films are my favorite and this one is one of the best. Great fun, lovable misfits, good character construction. and of course lars mikelson!

Anders Thomas Jensen has directed so many great Danish films (won the oscar for Election Night) and this one doesn't disappoint. Liked seeing Sofia Grabol (The Killing), Mads Mikkelsen, Nickolaj lie Kaas and Ulrich Thomsen in earlier days.

Great
