Something crazy
22 February 2001 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

A lorry driver, Georges Marceau, suffers an accident and a medicine doctor recommends him sexual abstention. But he marries Olivia (Bebé) and becomes angry, jealous... and killer. It is really a crazy thing indeed because Georges was got very close the best medicine to be cured... It pretends to look like a current event but Bebé was not used to be always in the middle. Crazy, yes.
