Even dead,he makes me waste my time!
1 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Although a dog appears now and then along this comedy,the "chien" rather means "the hammer of the guns" .

After a stickup (?) gangsters fight for the loot and the story looks like a treasure hunt with a little hide and seek in a disused railway station,where the locomotives are still rolling.

The screenwriters seem to have a liking for scatology :one scene deals with an urgent call of nature,and the gangsters' favorite hiding place is the toilets.

Although the screenwriters occasionally come up with a good line or two,the story is repetitive and boring in the long run;the director was not able to take advantage of the places where he filmed:the girl's " bar of the laws" (sic),or mainly the wonderful old station are not fully exploited;one may wonder why ,when Frank is searching for the dough ,it's filmed in slow motion ;ditto for the final confrontation,which is treated as a ballet ,to boot.

Clovis Cornillac 's former wife,Caroline Proust ,seems on Valium as soon as she leaves her cafe;the others make the best of their parts ,which are not much,even though they try to introduce an ambiguous relationship between the two male principals.
