Storyline

Simon and Dede are best friends: two aimless drunks who spend their days getting sloshed and any other available time getting laid. Simon is living on unemployment benefits in a trailer parked near his sister's apartment. Dede works at a fish-packing plant on the night shift. Neither man is sensitive, young, or good looking. However, their sang-froid (literally, "cold blood," referring to a quality of imperturbability) stands them in good stead as they go about their seedy lives, picking up one woman and having sex with her on the beach, or when Simon calmly has sex with a prostitute in front of the woman's brother. In the past, a bizarre necrophiliac situation led to Simon experiencing his only sense of what it might be to truly love someone. Written by Ørnås

Excellent but disturbing
24 September 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

I saw this film about 12 years ago but i still remember it. Bouchitey is one on my favorite french actors and he made something great with LUNE FROIDE: 1 - He managed to adapt perfectly Charles Bukowski's universe (and that wasn't an easy piece!) 2 - He filmed in black and white, an excellent way to bring despair, troubles and loneliness 3 - as an actor he's just great (Stevenin too)
