Plot: THE GREEN BUTCHERS is 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 else at all apart from Astrid, his girlfriend. Starting their own butcher 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 their organic butcher shop. Business takes off, but will they still be able to obtain the ingredients for this special dish?

Anders Thomas Jensen is a self-taught screenwriter, director & Oscar® winner. Born 1972 in Denmark, he has written a number of Danish feature films, including three Dogme films The King is Alive, selected for Un Certain Regard at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, Mifue, a Grand Prix & Silver Bear winner at the 1999 Berlin Film Festival, Open Hearts (2002), and the comedy Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself (2003). He received a Best Short Film Oscar® nomination in three consecutive years for Ernst & the Light (1997), Wolfgang (1998), and Election Night (1999), the latter earning him an Academy Award. THE GREEN BUTCHERS is his second feature film. -- © Newmarket Films
