The Green Butchers

2004 R

Two rubes (Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Mads Mikkelsen) employed by a porcine, autocratic butcher get fed up with his belittling and establish their own charcuterie in Anders Thomas Jensen's inky, low-key comedy. Their mishap in the freezer room gives rise to a savory culinary concoction. Dubbed "chickie wickies," the recipie makes the duo the toast of the town. But as demand for their new dish rises, the population mysteriously shrinks.
