In Adam’s Apples, Ivan (excellently played by Mads Mikkelsen) is an insanely optimistic and perhaps somewhat naive preacher. He tries, to the best of his abilities, to help reform convicts, and brings them in to help around the remote, rural church he ministers to.
It’s a fascinating movie, perhaps hilarious or perhaps profound. Directed by Anders Thomas Jensen. And very good! Here is the trailer (see our review of Adam’s Apples as well):
