Antoine de Caunes,
This is a great pic from a very underrated director. It features an ageing hit-man who gets his jollies listening (thru a stethoscope) to the dying hearts of his victims; the film's villain, George, freebases his mother's ashes; and the film THE MASTURBATING GUNMAN, by the same director, is watched by the film's hero and his wife.
Like some of Savage's earlier pics, this focuses on a character's internal struggle to be a good person while doing "bad" things.
The shoot-out sequences are very well paced and executed and the performances are mostly above par. There is a strong (deviant) sexual current coursing through the narrative and black as pitch humor is employed in some scenes.
