Movie Reviews

The Green Butchers
Brian Larsen | 08/28/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love it when a skilled group of actors takes an absurdly funny situation and plays it absolutely straight and serious, without mugging for the camera, without pausing so you can laugh, and most certainly without a laugh track. Dark humor? I suppose, since it has murder and stuff. Svend and Bjarne open a butcher shop in this film, which the cover blurb calls "deceptively simple and wickedly funny." Yeah, that's what it is. It's Danish, the director has a strong Academy Award resume, and I don't care. I just know I enjoyed it immensely. It also features some very clever dialog, and you know I love word play."
