One of the Best Dark Comedies Ever – A Gem To Be Discovered
11 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

In Paris, on the eve of her 35th birthday, Claire Dostes (Michèle Laroque) decides to invite her three boy-friends Sacha Peters (Antoine Basler), Charles Thiriot (Michel Vuillermoz) and Prince Hakim (Zinedine Soualem) and her best friend Ruitchi (Gilles Privat) to a dinner party, with the objective of helping her to decide who would be her future husband. Meanwhile, the police detective Eric Cellier (Albert Dupontel) is chasing two small time thieves that are heisting the apartments in her neighborhood. Along the night, Claire accidentally kills her four guests. When she calls her sister Alice (Elise Tielrooy) to help her, she brings dozen of friends to a surprise birthday party. Soon she receives also the two burglars and the policemen under the command of Cellier. And the night has not finished yet.

"Serial Lover" certainly is one of the best dark comedies that I have ever seen. It is a gem to be discovered by the fans of this genre. This funny comedy is spectacular, with great performances of the cast. The wonderful, gorgeous and sexy Michèle Laroque, of whom I am a fan, has a stunning performance. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): 'Serial Lover'

Note: on 20 November 2013, I saw this movie again.
