Classy French episode piece show cases their best talent.
3 February 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

An episode film with the structure of LA RONDE and the name of another Ophuls fifties movie - all right, we'll forgive them for that.

The plot which involves terminal cases, strip club cleaners, an aging husband more interested in rent boys, disco fog asphyxiation and serial killer Cassell who's gone into the clinic for sleep therapy, gives a chance to watch talent of the standard of Kassovitz, Cellier and Placido at work. Nicely perverse touches like the nurse's delight at having pulled a loony.

Production is good and this one holds attention well even if we'd like to watch these people do something more substantial.
