Storyline

What to do when the workers of a factory have been laid off overnight? Louise has an original idea: why not pool the compensation money to ... hire a hit man and to liquidate the boss? Motion accepted so Louise goes in search of the gem they need and unfortunately comes across Michel, a stinky security specialist. Michel, who is busted, gladly accepts the deal but proves so inept that he sub-contracts the job to improbable novices. Moreover, as the factory was a mere branch of a multinational company, it is no bed of roses to find the one who actually made the decision to outsource its activities. But Louise will not give up so easily. Written by Guy Bellinger

Deserves the tag Louise Michel
22 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yes, a really anarchist film, it attacks the financial sharks who are ruining our society. This is the story of two underdogs who are going to try to strike straight at the head of this mafia. It is really enjoyable as we wish so often that we could do that. The "red virgin" anarchist Louise Michel- one of the first women to wear trousers - is also underlined by the sexual ambiguity of the characters. And also a nice touch is added by using the music of Daniel Johnston a musician as weird as the heroes of this film. The acting is perfect and the dark humour is great. Obviously this is a sort of militant film and so this film has a message, but why shouldn't film makers express their opinions ? It makes a good change from the bland stuff that we are served everyday.
