Mad enough to be forgotten
11 October 2003 | by (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) – See all my reviews

It's not the first time I'm complaining about the general lack of interest that Yves Boisset suffers from, and certainly not the last.

Boisset directed this amazing thriller with his usual style, every piece of the puzzle being right in its place, an infernal rythm sticking it all together.

It's the story of Julie (Marlène Jobert), an ex nutcase that's reinserted in society as a guardian angel for the young Thomas, a spoiled brat who appears to be a very rich orphan. As always in Boisset movies, trouble isn't very far ahead and takes the form of a cold blooded Tòmas Milian who kidnaps the child and Julie and asks for a ransom.

No one is innocent here, except for little Thomas, and nothing is what it seems. The major force of the movie being its casting, the co-production allowing Boisset to use Italian as well as French actors. Jobert is right on spot, Milian refrains from using his usual wide palette of grins (and is given an awful accent in the french dubbed version), and Michael Lonsdale is a decent enough corrupted bourgeois ! Victor Lanoux plays the menacing and simple ex convict, belly pot and sleazy eyes included.

With an engaging musical score, a simple and effective storyline, and enough plot twists to keep anybody awake, FOLLE À TUER should be released on DVD along with Boisset's finest, in a perfect world.

I've never been disappointed by this amazing director, and I will keep on digging in the slowly fading VHS crates to find more of his masterpieces, that's for sure.
