The Green Butchers

0 Love It
Save it
Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Mads Mikkelsen. Fed up with their obnoxious boss, two doltish butchery employees, Svend (Mikkelsen) and Bjarne (Kaas), break away to open a competing shop. Their new endeavor starts inauspiciously, but when a man accidentally freezes to death in the meat locker, his bad fortune is their business opportunity. Taking cues from cannibal comedies Sweeney Todd and Delicatessen, Danish writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen adds enough new wrinkles to fashion a decidedly sick, dryly funny affair, one with a final twist that's bloody good sauce on the meat pie.
