The typical little french kind of film that we often Watch in summertime. Unfortunately. It is produced and also written by Benoit Delepine. So, you may expect some offbeat sequences, and you'd be damn right.
But it is not a comedy. On the contrary. This movie is a dark and downbeat one, with an ending that I love. And I also like the leading character played by the tremendous Denis Menochet, the one with Robert Mitchum's eyes. His character here reminds me Edmond O Brien's one in DOA, in which an already "dead" man searches for his murderer(s).
A must see little film.
