Film Freak Central

For a comedy, that most culturally-specific of genres, the Danish production travels remarkably well

Denmark may not have any Coen brothers, but it does have one Anders Thomas Jensen, and he's more than enough.

...considering the premise, this is a remarkably accessible little film.

Isn't for all tastes, but it's well worth digging into -- if you've got the stomach for it.

Gruesome as it may sound, Butchers is a likeable, well-made film and a genuine comedy.

You might not want to dine with this group, especially if they brought the meat. But it's OK to play with the knives a little.

While it's got a refreshingly dry, nasty tone, the film is never quite as funny as it needs to be.

A dark comedy whose story is propelled by shock but sustained by issues of love and forgiveness.

Should have been either darker or funnier. Or both.

Mines the deep vein of flat-out weirdness that runs through an apparently sleepy, picturesque Danish community.

Great hapless performances by the leads keep things running even when the script decides to turn sentimental, threatening to make mincemeat out of the nasty fun.

Jensen's tone is admirably dry, and the film offers its pleasures through small, writerly details.

A sort of reverse Dogme movie, set in a slightly surreal world where everyone and everything is just a bit off-kilter.

It is Jensen's acute sense of life's cruel absurdities that allows him to illuminate how pain and hilarity can continually flow into each other.
