The Green Butchers

Film

Time Out says

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.
