One Halloween, the alcoholic mother of good-for-nothing Raymond suddenly dies, and he throws her body in a ditch. Repenting, he calls his sister Angelie, an actress who he has not seen for ten years, to help find the corpse. But the corpse they bring back in the ruined family home is not that of their mother. The brother and the sister start a sinister adventure involving two gangsters in dire straits, two chilling dealers, a dishonest artist agent, a terribly stupid cop, and a horde of pigs.Written by
This is a great film, it is a very dark comedy. I am surprised at how low the rating on IMDb is, 5.3 at time of writing, because this is original and very entertaining.
The actors all deliver good performances. Huard is excellent in the lead role with a very unstated performance as a desperate loser, LeBreton as the over-the-top sexy narcissist is also good and the rest of the cast playing mostly idiots perform well.
The pace is good, it starts of with a bang and although it slows down in a few places it is never too long between violence and humour.
This is a farce, the humour is slapstick, so don't expect any amazing dialogue.
The timing is superb and some of the unfortunate events are genuinely surprising.
The ending is also a bit of a surprise if less funny than expected from the rest of the film.
Lots of laugh out loud moments.
