Franklin Franklin plays the alphorn and dreams of Switzerland. His crazy brother sends him fingernail clippings in the mail. One of his neighbors is a forgetful pot-head, the other a gruff busybody who doesn't miss anything. Across the street live a mother and her fifteen-year-old daughter, whom he likes to watch from his window, but none of these are Franklin's real problem. His real problem is that his landlord is dead, laid out on the linoleum of his kitchen, and Switzerland seems farther away all the time. (c) Official site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A toxically quirky black comedy starring a morbidly obese albino who dreams of traveling to Switzerland."
‑ Simon Abrams, Chicago Sun-Times
"Jonas Åkerlund's crass, cartoonish comedy about an oddball trying to dispose of his landlord's corpse."
‑ Simon Kinnear, Total Film
"When Johnny Knoxville is your MVP, it's maybe time to go back to the drawing board."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"Begins as a totally quirky novelty film with seemingly absurd, overdrawn and outrageous characters ... but ends up as an absolutely captivating, totally quirky novelty film - with heart and many surprises"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"Despite the film's distinctive look and the best efforts of the willing cast, this amusing, morbid and mildly misanthropic mélange always seems to be straining for effect."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"Åkerlund seems distracted by all the inherent quirkiness of the personalities and uses it as a crutch."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"The brazen, colourful nature of the characters is the strength of this black comedy from Jonas Åkerlund - and its topline cast. There's an additional, unexpected factor that does not hit us until the very end. It has a heart"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"Relentlessly quirky and strange, this pitch black comedy manages to combine its outrageous silliness with some surprising emotional resonance."
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"The material is too thin to truly inspire, showing more skill as a map of madness, populated with greasy, grimy types who inhabit our world, yet refuse to abandon their own."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
