realistic surrealism
3 June 2012 | by barbara-205-669547See all my reviews

fantastic performance of all actors... especially the great Benoit Poelvoorde. Spontaneous comic dialogs as absurd as can be... The environment of these shopping areas in the outskirts of all bigger towns in France, looking the same wherever you go is a perfect background for this acid story about people struggling. Once the atmosphere set, a firework of weird characters start to play together their non existing relationship. If you have liked Delépine's and Kervern's black humor, you will enjoy this one too... Touching desperados in a everyday-life setting, enhanced by the fixed camera. They do have a true talent to make you laugh with cynicism...
