More macabre would be perverse!
3 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Sitcom" tells the story about a petty bourgeois French family who leads a surface normal life. One day father brings white rat from a research institute to his home and from this day things changes radical, because everyone who has physical contact with this animal becomes totally freaked out..! The son outs himself as a homo, the daughter does S&M-practices and becomes endangered for suicide, the mother starts having a sex affair with her own son...

You have to see this great satire with your own eyes to believe it when human soulish depths turn up! Cynical, provoking and grotesque - more words are not needed to describe it!! A great farce!!!
