Cannes 2013: Tip Top - first look review

20 May 2013 6:19 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Bill James's crime thriller is sexed-up and transplanted to France, with Isabelle Huppert in the lead. But the odd mix of bloody murder and comedy couplings means the movie belies its title

Tip Top – based on a crime thriller by British novelist Bill James – is a topsy-turvy sex comedy tarted up as cop drama. It's silly and wacky and rude and glib. A Punch and Judy show playing out on the set of Silent Witness.

Isabelle Huppert and Sandrine Kiberlain play Esther Lafarge and Sally Marinelli, two internal affairs investigators parachuted into the police department in Villeneuve, Lille to uncover the mole who caused the death of an Algerian informant. They're joined by the snitch's handler, Inspector Mendes (François Damiens) - who's keen to shift the focus of the investigation from his shady dealings with his new shill (Aymen Saïdi) towards his chances of hopping in the sack with one or both women. »
