In Paris, on the eve of her 35th birthday, Claire Dostes decides to invite her three boy-friends Sacha Peters, Charles Thiriot and Prince Hakim and her best friend Ruitchi to a dinner party, with the objective of helping her to decide who would be her future husband. Meanwhile, the police detective Eric Cellier is chasing two small time thieves that are heisting the apartments in her neighborhood. Along the night, Claire accidentally kills her four guests.

Absurd but funny atrocities
10 November 2000 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This film was shown as a premiere during a French cinema festival in Amsterdam. The summary in the guide said something about the film being similar to Pulp Fiction and John Long Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and that's how far I got reading.

You can imagine I didn't expect what I was going to see, but it amused me anyway. The humor is very black and very gory, so this is no movie for the faint-hearted ones. If you don't mind this, you can do nothing but laugh at the absurd, Funes-like situations caused by the main character. The plot is quite original and undergoes unexpected twists, which with the great special effects (both visual and aural) give the film a certain freshness. This did me remind of Pulp Fiction.

I was sitting with about ten people in the theater, but I can assure we had the time of our lives, laughing at the absurd but funny atrocities throughout the film!
