home movie horror
31 March 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I have often wondered what the early super 8 shorts of successful directors are like, and with this film I think I got a fairly good idea of what Ozon's early films are about. It is set in his families house, using his family as actors. It tells a black comic story about a boy who kills his family because they didn't like his movie they he showed them. The film is ultimately a home movie, shot by someone who is still trying to learn the basics of the medium. However, the story is told clearly and is never confusing as far as images are concerned. I suppose it can be summed up as an interesting little oddity by a director who has become quite famous.
