Ivan is an insanely optimistic preacher who takes in convicts to help around the remote, rural church he ministers to. His current charges are a psychotic Saudi immigrant addicted to robbing gas stations and an alcoholic tennis pro convicted of sexual assault. His newest "helper" is Adam, a vicious neo-Nazi anxiously biding his time before he can return to hell-raising. Asked to set a goal for his stay, Adam sarcastically answers that he'd like to bake a cake. Ivan cheerfully takes that statement at face value and puts him in charge of the parish's pride and joy: the only apple tree in the vicinity. Grasping the extent of Ivan's crazed, preternatural determination to look on the bright side of everything - Adam immediately decides to shake him out of his rose-colored stupor.

This movie is funny, heartwarming, and filled with unexpected turns. The actors give humorously touching performances. Mads Mikkelsen shines in his role as an offbeat reverend, who helps ex-cons get back on their feet.

Absolutely fine flick, unexpectedly high level acting, script, score. Enjoyable production, black comedy real.

Not very well done--- Mikkelsen and Thomsen try their best, but the writing really isn't that up to snuff. The soundtrack makes the film verge even more into the realm of melodrama. If you're used to Danish films marked by their subtlety, then this one is not worth your time.
