Flickering Lights (Danish: Blinkende Lygter) is a 2000 Danish black comedy film directed by Anders Thomas Jensen starring Søren Pilmark, Mads Mikkelsen, Ulrich Thomsen and Nikolaj Lie Kaas. It has been a major success in its native Denmark.


Four small-time gangsters from Copenhagen trick a gangster boss: they steal over 4,000,000 Danish kroner which they were supposed to bring him. Trying to escape to Barcelona they are forced to stop in the countryside, in an old, wrecked house, hiding there for several weeks. Slowly, one after another, they realize that they would like to stay there, starting a new life, renovating the house and forming it into a restaurant. But their past eventually catches up with them.
