A very nice thriller with a mediocre story
6 May 2005 | by =G=See all my reviews

"Who Killed Bambi?" is a subtitled French film all about Isabelle (aka Bambi), a surgical nurse in training in a hospital where strange things are happening to attractive female patients. As this somewhat plodding film wears on, Isabelle comes to suspect a surgeon of murder and the plot becomes a dangerous contest of wits between doctor and nurse. A visually stylish film with little to fault, the mounting tension is marginal and barely sufficient to qualify it as a thriller. Rather it is a somewhat tedious drama which a couple of peculiar dream-like scenes which seem like an after-thought and a conclusion which is anticlimactic and too long in coming. Nonetheless, there's enough substance to make this a worthwhile watch for those into French cinema who've seen the many better films of this genre. (B)
