Forever (2015/MVD Visual/Drafthouse Films Blu-ray w/DVD)

you're a fan of dry humor akin to the work of Larry David (Curb
Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld), then you may want to check out
this foreign feature film, Klown Forever, that is based on a
Danish TV series entitled Klown. In the film, Casper
Christensen and Frank Hvan end up traveling to the U.S. (namely Los
Angeles) in search of fame and fortune, but end up finding awkward
situations and a wide variety of unusually funny characters.
sounds like this could become superfluous, but the makers manage to
pull off much of what they attempt here and its not just Danish humor
(whatever that might be) with strangers in a strange land. So will
culture clashes play into it all?
Forever is presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen
aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and a great sounding, lossless Danish DTS-HD
MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track (with English Subtitles) that is suitable
for the comedy and nature of the film. Also included is a standard
DVD version presented in 1.85:1 and a lossy Danish Dolby Digital 5.1
track (with English subs). The Blu-ray clarity is sharper than the
DVD by miles but due to the type of film this is, it's not an exact
necessity to see it in high definition to enjoy it, yet it does make
the visual humor funnier.

pretty funny show with decent production value and some very funny
moments, I would suggest this film to fans of offbeat foreign humor.
