While the acting is top-notch, the real star of the film is the script.
75
Chicago Tribune
Macabre, oddly gripping.
70
The Hollywood Reporter
Pitch-perfect performances bring it all home, particularly that of Danish leading man Mikkelsen.
70
A dark comedy whose story is propelled by shock but sustained by issues of love and forgiveness.
63
Neither rare nor particularly well done. If you're looking for Danish meatballs served on dark wry, though, you could do worse.
63
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Black comedies don't get much darker than this.
60
The result isn't exactly funny, just profoundly peculiar and even occasionally, unexpectedly poignant.

New York Daily News
Should have been either darker or funnier. Or both.
50
New York Post
A flawed black comedy about two buddies who open a butcher's shop in a small Danish town.
25
Neither funny nor outrageous nor horrifying nor conventionally affecting.
