Ivan is a priest in a rural church known for the apples that grow on a large tree in front. He's odd: seeing the world through rose-colored glasses, in denial about personal facts, and convinced he's at war with Satan. The rectory is a half-way house for recently paroled convicts. Adam arrives for 12 weeks, a large, tough neo-Nazi, first baffled by Ivan's thick-headed optimism, then angry. He vows to break Ivan's faith. Meanwhile, in exasperation at Ivan's insistence, Adam sets a personal goal: to bake an apple pie. All goes awry for the tree: crows, worms, lightening. The Book of Job gives Adam perverse insight, and his hooligan mates provide the resolution's spring.

IMDB - 20 wins

As an ardent devotee of danish film, I place this film on the top shelf. Right next to the best of directors (without further comparison) like Lars Von Trier, Nicolas Winding Refn and Thomas Vinterberg. I fully believe that this film deserves all ten shining stars. I will recommend it to everyone who appreciates films with a certain visual and emotional freshness and impact. With "Adams Æbler", Anders Thomas Jensen has made his, of my opinion, best movie yet. By far. His Last two movies, especially the first one, "Blinkende luger", was very entertaining, but this one moves beyond.

With his brilliant authenticity in the character of the troubled reverend, Mads Mikkelsen ("pusher", "bleeder", "blinkende luger", "de grønne slagtere") rises up from just being a good bi-actor, to becoming a complete artist of performance. Together with Ulrich Thomsen who plays the Nazi on re-socialization, he carries the viewers through a fresh, shocking, dark, utterly intelligent, and exceptionally both humorous and psychological experience.

Being more than rich on nerve-shattering imagery, great performances, and a very well crafted story, this film also leads a sharp edged, underlying parallel to an ancient story that comes to life in the film, and ends in a brilliant paradoxical way. A powerful movie! 10/10
