Factual errors: Jersey only has a small police force and lacks an armed response unit (like that depicted in the film). The arrival of armed police on Jersey would take at least two hours allowing for communication, preparation and travel time, more than enough time for Louise and Michel to escape.See more »

A top-class, can't miss, refreshing movie, 17 August 2009
Author: Sylvain Allard from Canada

Of course, this movie is not for the masses and most situations are often completely politically- incorrect. At the end of the day it's a dark comedy, a critic of the society, and a little marvel in terms of cinematographic quality.

First the soundtrack is very good. Second the characters are socially off-track, abnormal, and as the movie progresses more and more mystery arise around their past. Both main characters are well played and offer, at moments, hilarious performance. The theater that I saw this in Montreal was often filled with laughs.

A sadistic, cynical tale around hope in lower classes of society and fantasy to reach happiness in this world.
