La mort du chinois is a 'cracked' light comedy, where Michel writes stories for children with animals that speak. Hélène, his wife, leaves him... So, Michel has no more inspiration... Nor Gérard, his Cassanova friend, neither his new girlfriend Lise can console him. He loses himself in alcohol and drugs... and here the film finds its deeper moments and originality. I adore absurdities, and La mort du chinois gives us them. The hero is lost in a delirium full of... animals. These are surprising even strong moments with wunderful ideas, intersected, yes, by some more heavy gags, but the actors and the whole harebrained, cockeyed film are enthusing.
