a Deep and cruel comedy
17 May 2002 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

"Le createur" is a quite unique picture. The plot starts well : a theater author forgets to write his play and realizes it too late. He first believes he has to drink or to take medics to write. One dey, he accidently kills a cat and starts to believe that killing, destroying, is the sure way to be a real creator. The play seems to write itself when its author is asleep, a psychiatrist thinks it is the expression of the writer's subconsciensness. This movie is about creating and self confidence, it is absurd, deep, dark and really very funny. The cameo of terry jones lets guess Albert Dupontel's duty to Monty Python cinema. The characters are funny, the camera mooves well, the photography is brilliant, the "subjective views" (cat, computer) are quite clever. 9/10
