What to do when the workers of a factory have been laid off overnight? Louise has an original idea: why not pool the compensation money to ... hire a hit man and to liquidate the boss? Motion accepted so Louise goes in search of the gem they need and unfortunately comes across Michel, a stinky security specialist. Michel, who is busted, gladly accepts the deal but proves so inept that he sub-contracts the job to improbable novices. Moreover, as the factory was a mere branch of a multinational company, it is no bed of roses to find the one who actually made the decision to outsource its activities. But Louise will not give up so easily.Written by

Jersey only has a small police force and lacks an armed response unit (like that depicted in the film). The arrival of armed police on Jersey would take at least two hours allowing for communication, preparation and travel time, more than enough time for Louise and Michel to escape. See more »
SPOILER: After the credits, there is another scene where the workers discover that the real boss lives in Florida. They look for another assassin. See more »
Of course, this movie is not for the masses and most situations are often completely politically- incorrect. At the end of the day it's a dark comedy, a critic of the society, and a little marvel in terms of cinematographic quality.
First the soundtrack is very good. Second the characters are socially off-track, abnormal, and as the movie progresses more and more mystery arise around their past. Both main characters are well played and offer, at moments, hilarious performance. The theater that I saw this in Montreal was often filled with laughs.
A sadistic, cynical tale around hope in lower classes of society and fantasy to reach happiness in this world.
