User Reviews

like Harold and Maude gone way south.
15 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Tense and witty, The French Guy will have you stuck to the edge of your seat for its duration. You'll laugh and suffer through Elizabeth's (Chula) worst nightmare come true. Fleming provides a hilarious, yet provocative meditation on violence from a female perspective within the context of middle/upper class North America. The French Guy is like Harold and Maude, gone way south.

From Tygh Runyan's performance as an aspiring musician down on his luck and desperate for recognition, to Serge Bennathan's performance as the removed, aesthetically obsessed, culture snob, The French Guy is rich in satirical social commentary.

Anne Marie explores the creative edge by bringing typically non-diegetic sound from a horror soundtrack onto the screen with live musicians. Carefully shot, watching The French Guy is like watching a painter. The plastic covered condo is the canvas, and blood is the paint.

I highly recommend this film.
