Jensen is an accomplished screenwriter with a knack for developing people amid comic nonsense.
Some will see this as a movie about how we're all God's children. I saw only the misanthropic fulminations of Jensen's runaway ego.
For all its roughhouse antics, Adam's Apples is almost improbably sweet: a rude comedy that the devout and heathen alike can hold to their breasts.
New York Daily News:
Designed to elicit as many gasps as laughs, Anders Thomas Jensen's pitch-black comedy offers an audaciously skewed take on good vs. evil.
New York Post:
I'm sure there's a decent black comedy in the material, but Adam's Apples, by Danish director Anders Thomas Jensen, isn't it.
G. Allen Johnson,
San Francisco Chronicle:
This oddball story is more than a one-joke concept. Its characters are sometimes cruel, sometimes sweet, but always recognizably human.
Adam's Apples strives for black comedy, but winds up being neither funny nor spiritually enlightening.
