"Imagine if Armando Iannucci made a horror film with Julia Ducournau, and then times that by ten." - CineEuropa
"Gleefully shows the unspeakable... a bracing provocation of a film" – Screen Daily
"Scabrous and gruesome state-of-the-nation black comedy" – Guardian
A cerebral and shocking satirical commentary on French society and political correctness, with a patchwork of vignettes weaving together the tales of a retired couple eager to win a rock ‘n’ roll dance contest to pay off their debts, a social-climbing lawyer, a teenage girl determined to lose her virginity, and a tax-evading minister of the economy.
Screening as part of the French Film Festival UK. Every year the Festival selects a fantastic variety of French cinema, with many films not screened in the UK before.
