Storyline

Two dangerous convicts escape while transferring between jail houses. Cornered by the police, they find refuge in the lovely little house inhabited by the charming Roze family. Too bad for the wedding anniversary the family was planning to celebrate this evening: the criminal duo decides to hold everyone in the house hostage, just in case. While the felons gradually display their softer and nicer sides, the Rozes reveal themselves way less charming than it seemed, as the situation brings their worst instincts uninhibited.

Dramatic, sexy, gory, comedic, shocking and smart! Bravo!
13 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Imagine a film in which the plot turns ever more twisted with each circumstance. As if "Le diner de cons" meet "Pulp Fiction". Murphy's Law tangles every well laid plan into a unexpected and ever deepening mesh of disastrous consequences, in which every character willingly and cathartically expose themselves to be exactly the opposite of who they are portrayed to be… shockingly so in fact. "Bienvenue chez les Rozes" is like a book that you can't put down. The difficult and delicate elements that make dark humor work are held in perfect balance by Palluau's direction, screenplay and gifted cast in this excellent and inspired film. Dramatic, sexy, gory, comedic, shocking and smart, from its star studded cast to the "four randonneurs" who cue the quirky haunting musical theme just in time to remind us that this is a comedy, "Bienvenue chez les Rozes" is at the top of my favorite French Film list, and I recommend it highly to American viewers as well. Bravo!
