This surreal erotic thriller is set in a flesh-filled and violence-prone butcher shop. A large, lustful butcher, used to living out his sexual fantasies in the shop, becomes interested in Roxy, his young female apprentice. The girl, documenting everything with a video camera, enthusiastically gets involved with him. But when the butcher is murdered and a police inspector, who looks exactly like the dead butcher, investigates the crime, the story takes on a dreamlike quality.Written by
A very strange movie that shows a lot of "flesh". Both from animals (raw meat) and human (naked). But to reduce it to those things would be simple minded and not fair to the movie. It tries to create a vibe, an otherworldly feeling to it. Apart from the usual numbness that might succumb anyone in our society today that is.
There is not only one mystery, but quite a few, especially concerning the ending that seems to be quite a maze. Even an extended scene on the DVD didn't really answer any question, which you might find good or bad, depending on how you like your movies. The acting is solid (underplayed as the whole movie of course) and the rare dialog is decent enough too.
