Cool Flick...., 30 September 2000
Author: Blou from Sydney, Australia

I stumbled onto this movie late one night on SBS (Australia's foreign movie channel specialist) and I thought it was going to be another perverted French film. Well, I was right, but I actually enjoyed this exaggerated look into family dysfunction. It all begins with the father of the family bringing home a pet rat, to which his wife reacts to in disgust. His son, Nicolas and daughter, Sophie, are rather indifferent to the creature. That night at dinner, the nerdy son announces his homosexuality and then in the privacy of his bedroom, has it on with the maids husband, Abdu. The daughter soon jumps out of a window to become a paraplegic and indulges in sadomachoism and bondage with her boyfriend. The mother indulges in a bit of incestuous sex with her son. Dysfunction with a capital D! And just when you thought the father hadn't been affected by the arrival of the rat... well, I won't spoil the ending but I know you'll either be pleasantly surprised of pleasantly disgusted. This movie is superb. It has a great cast, and even though it is a tan unbelievable, it is thoroughly entertaining! ***1/2/*****
