Storyline

All the researchers of the IMPS laboratory are males - with one exception : Mademoiselle Clara, Antoine, the cleaner, desperately yearns for. Night after night, when Clara is alone, going on with her experiments, the young man awkwardly maneuvers with a view to declaring his flame. But the cold scientist remains unconcerned. In his trouble, Antoine regularly drops and breaks phials and other test tubes full of dangerous chemical products. He doesn't care when his skin gets into contact with acid. His heart burns too much for him to be able to feel the burning of his skin. And if he can't GIVE his hand to Clara will he really mind to... LOSE it ? Written by Guy Bellinger

Laboratoire de l'angoisse, Le (1971)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A dorky and stupid lab assistant falls in love with the beautiful female scientist so he stays with her every night while she works. The fool is so in love with her that he keeps getting nervous and spilling dangerous chemicals on himself, which soon starts to make his flesh melt. While this isn't a total success, it's charming enough for one viewing and contains some nice laughs including the terrific ending. Directed by Patrice Leconte.

You can find this short on a R2 disc but it's now out of print.
