"In China They Eat Dogs" is a Danish film directed by Lasse Spang Olsen. This is an extremely funny action movie about a Arvid (Dejan Cukic) who has misgivings about having sent a bank robber to jail. Arvid is attacked by a woman who claims to be the bank robber's wife. She explains that they had needed the money for artificial insemination since they were not able to have a child otherwise. Arvid's guilt about sending the man to jail leads him to seek out his brother, Harald (Kim Bodnia) who is a criminal, in order to steal money so that the woman can have the artificial insemination. They then attempt to break the man out of prison, and almost kill him in the process, all the while Vuk (sounds like puke), is suffering one injury after another while assisting in these capers. After breaking the bank robber out of jail they discover that the woman was actually lying. She was his sister, not his wife. So it turns out they had done everything for not. This leads to another series of crazy events as innocent victims get in the way and the body count builds all leading to a grand shootout and its surprising ending. This film reminded me somewhat of "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", with its manic energy, and various twists and turns.
The film seems to be about Arvid learning that there are no barriers in life except for those that one places upon themselves. In a country, like China, it is okay to eat dogs, whereas in European or North American societies, it is thought of as repulsive. As the film progresses the mild, and boring Arvid, gradually transforms into a character who sets his own code of morals, which don't necessarily fit in with the norms set by his society. Anarchy ensues as one thing leads to another in this highly entertaining film.
