Suddenly, a middle-aged man finds a new lease of life. And then he keeps on changing...

An electric performance by Ulrich Thomsen (Festen) drives this unpredictable and darkly funny domestic thriller by Kristian Levring (The King is Alive). Michael needs a change, so he impulsively signs up to be part of a clinical drug trial. He soon finds himself behaving differently: long-buried instincts start to assert themselves, with increasingly disturbing consequences. Thing is, Michael rather likes himself this way...

    Creep and tense movie but very entertaining

    Nice low key and dark thriller let down by a bit of a deflated ending.
