Owing to a premise that simply seemed too crazy to be an actual film, the SWISS ARMY MAN trailer quickly became a viral hit online. Hank (Paul Dano) is on the verge of desperation after having been stranded on a deserted island, when one day a human corpse (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on the shore. When the deceased proves to be a human multi-tool, Hank soon realises that he has found his ultimate island partner. Funny and warm, philosophical and bittersweet, SWISS ARMY MAN is one of the year’s most original and surprising films.
