Storyline

This drama depicts the misery of neglected children in big cities. 13 years old Bruno is of a good family, but since the death of his grandmother he spends most of his time alone, in a phantasy world, while his mother is away at work. But then he befriends the violent Jean-Roger, who's from a severely disturbed family, where nobody cares what he's doing. In school Jean-Roger drives their teacher into despair just for fun. To separate the two boys, she starts to stimulate Bruno's interests by giving him extra lessons. When Jean-Roger fears loosing his one and only friend, he becomes even more aggressive.

Jeux brutaux.(Brutal games)
16 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

In Brisseau's precedent work "un jeu brutal" ,we made acquaintance with a scientist/serial killer and his disabled daughter ,who had no hope and were trying to nullify their life in the sound and the fury.

"De bruit et de fureur" is Loach 's "Kes" in the harsh realities of the late eighties.The hero,like Loach's is a young misfit ,whose only friend is a bird and whose mother is also absent (we never see her,we only read the notes she puts in the kitchen).And again,like in "Kes" a teacher tries to help him.The world around him is bleak,nightmarish and rough,epitomized by Cremer's -the serial killer in "un jeu brutal- character who turns his apartment into a shooting gallery.

The ending might repel some .An intense poetry emanates from the last picture .Maybe up there someone likes him...maybe...
