Polanski + cannibal comedy= gem
30 October 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I felt I had to post this, as the previous comment comes apparently from someone who've seen the movie in french without understanding it, and I admit that it makes a big difference. The film is pretty fast for it's time and you don't have the time to be bored as there are constant jokes, even the posters on the walls in the restaurant stating a fake Chinese vegetarian philosophy are a treat. The actors are all great and delivers their lines with passion and energy. Guy Bedos as Jerome Fenouic makes a nice character that just want to find back Violette, the girl he fell in love with, and that will lead him to meet two opposites gangs that fights for a statue full of drug, and will end up in the middle of a cannibal sect that eat women to celebrate their beauty (and also coz they're tasty). If you like "Fearless vampire killers", you'll like this one as it is from the same writers and use the same dark humor and crazy situations. Unfortunately this film never had the chance to have a VHS or DVD release yet, which is pretty strange considering that Roman Ploanski is a respected director now and that Guy Bedos is the oldest and most famous french stand up comedian still active today. I had the chance to taped it some 15 years ago on a french private channel during a special show. You can find a copy of it on the net now, I even made some English subtitles for it for the non french speakers so they can fully enjoy this great film. As nobody seems to own the rights actually, it's supposed to be in the public domain. May be one day it'll surface again, it even seems to have been omitted from many Polanski's bios. One word again, the charming Sophie Daumier was Guy Bedos partner's at the time, on stage but also in life. They did numerous sketches together even a song, she's also singing a song in the movie about having a twin sister and making a threesome (quiet shocking joke for 64 even with chosen words). I love this one, if you have the chance watch it, you'll not be disappointed.
