Thoughts on Wild Men
Thoughts – Wild Men is an adventure comedy that will see two men at different stages of their lives come together when they need to escape their lives, become wild men in the Norwegian mountain range. This will bring the human factor to life into the bigger spotlight, showing how important being happy can make people do the strangest things in life. The story is clever to show us both sides of what has happened with Martin, with his family searching for him and him not fitting in with what he wants to commit too. The Norwegian Mountain range will make for a jaw-dropping backdrop for this movie. The performances in the film are great with Rasmus Bjerg committing to the wild man figure.
