One of the most understated French Black-Humour Films
11 February 2000 | by clive.shawSee all my reviews

I've only seen this film once, over 10 years ago on night-time TV but it has stuck firmly in my mind ever since. It begins with quite a surreal touch, you don't really know whats going on until the last 10 minutes. It follows a psycho as he goes on a murdering spree across France, killing Garage attendents, Life Guards, Actors in the most brutal, Penelope Pitstop contrived situations, ie locking the Garage attendent in his paint-oven.

All these murders are unlinked until the final 10 minutes when we discover that they are actually members of a Jury about to condemn his son, the final scence...well, I'll leave that for you.

It's black-humour at it's best, a French genre film at it's best but still, I've never seen it available on video, if anyone knows where I can source it I will be a happy man for ever more.
