Storyline

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 lament

Experimental film is shocking but often funny
19 February 2011 | by Andy-296See all my reviews

I saw this Dutch movie at a film festival, and certainly it's not the sort of movie that usually gets a commercial release. It's kind of hard to describe, set mostly in a slaughterhouse (thus the title) it is a mix of surreal dark comedy and experimental film. It's hard to compare with anything, though one might find in it echoes of movies by David Lynch or Peter Greenaway. There is a lot of emphasis in meat (in the cow sense and in the naked human flesh sense) and in bodily functions. There are several gross out scenes, played for laughs. For example, right at the beginning, we have a very obese middle aged man making love in the shower to a very beautiful young blond girl. There is a murder right at the start, and the movie becomes a sort of detective story, though who done it is obviously not very important. The same actor, for example, plays the murdered butcher and the detective (it has this sort of modernist tricks). I am not saying this movie is for everyone or even for most people, but I have to say that I enjoyed this movie and laughed quite a bit at the theater.
