Great movie
9 July 2002 | by Jean-Luc-3See all my reviews

It has its shocking elements, but Un Zoo La Nuit is, in the end, a touching film about a son trying to re-establish his relationship with his dying father. The zoo surreal zoo scene is particularily touching, in which the father and son, in an attempt to relive their past by going hunting, shoot an elephant with a sleeping dart gun and put him to sleep. Overall, a well-executed and thoughtful movie.
