In theaters and VOD beginning July 27th
In what critics are hailing as "the funniest movie of the year!" (IFC.com), Klown follows two wildly inappropriate friends - played by celebrated international comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen - as they run amok through the Danish countryside plowing through endless awkward confrontations and unspeakable debaucheries. Hopelessly wrongheaded Frank "kidnaps" the 12-year-old nephew of his pregnant girlfriend in an eager attempt to prove his fatherhood potential to join sex-crazed Casper on his adulterous weekend canoe trip. From exclusive brothels, hospitalizations, armed robberies and even prison, the three paddle downstream from one chaotic misadventure to the next culminating to a surprise sentimental portrait of friendship and a final shocking reveal that you won't soon unsee.
