Chucky's holiday in the "Deliverance" village...
28 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Are you curious about the dark underbelly of the French country side? Vincent Cassel, once again proves his chameleon talents, from the hard-boiled skinhead (La Haine) to the sophisticated adult brat (Ocean's 12), by playing the role of an extremely disturbing and mysterious peasant. The rest of the cast is made up of brand-new, but highly talented actors. The decor is very carefully composed and you might find yourself looking around for extra creepy details.

The action opens in a nightclub, a normal enough setting for a holiday night, and the strange stifling atmosphere, which is truly the best element of the film, settles in right from the start. They decide to set off to one of the girl's country house for the night

The language itself is very funny, colourful, quick and witty.Expect to learn a good few french swear words and expressions.

It is a very interesting first film, filled with original shots and editing. Definitely worth a look.

Planing on visiting Paris? Be careful, the village in the film is only an hour away. Don't wander off...
