Storyline

A vicious serial sex killer is on the loose, and landscape gardener and shop-window outfitter Loris is the prime suspect, thanks to his unfortunate habit of getting caught in compromising situations (for which there is always a totally innocent explanation that the police fail to spot). Undercover policewoman Jessica is assigned by eccentric police psychologist Taccone to follow Loris and provide evidence for his arrest - but things don't quite go according to plan...

Very good.
20 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

While the subject matter of this movie may seem very heavy and not appealing, it is one of the funniest movies. Even though he is a suspect in several awfull crimes, there is hardly anything offensive in this movie. Plus it a has a satisfying ending, leaving nothing wanting. A very bizzare but good flick.
