• Black Comedy / 99 min / Denmark / 2003
Synopsis

A comedy that combines the trite, the morbid and the amusing. Bjarne and Svend are pals. Svend has great ambition driven by an equally great inferiority complex, while Bjarne hardly cares about anything at all apart from Astrid, his girlfriend. Starting their own butcher's shop enables them to escape from their vicious boss, Holger, but the shop doesn't do well until a bizarre coincidence leads Svend to concoct a new dish for the organic butcher shop. Business takes off, but will they still be able to obtain the ingredients for this special dish?
