I don't know what to think about Mocky. He's of the same generation as Truffaut and Chabrol, yet never found a mass audience. One of his films, Snobs, is listed in the Time Out film guide, so at least he was spotted by one critic. Mocky is an anarchist within the French film industry: he flails around, shooting at targets on the right and left, not hitting much.
Deneuve, Bohringer, Novembre, and Scott-Thomas all are pretty stiff here, not knowing what they're supposed to do. The story is a mess; why is Bohringer shooting all those people with a handgun equipped with silencer? Why the long bus tour, which seems to go nowhere? Why does Catherine Deneuve wear that silly wig, which makes her look so frumpy? Why am I watching this?
