Editorial Reviews

In this bizarre surrealist comedy from France, a handful of oddball characters live in a world where people heap strange forms of abuse on animals. In the midst of such madness, a stocky animal handler (Gustave Kervern) falls in with a pair of dissolute zookeepers (Benoit Delepine and Eric Martin). The zookeepers involve their new friend in a crazy scheme to kidnap the pet dog of a very wealthy woman, Avida (Velvet).

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Riddance to Old Rubbish!!!! May 28, 2014
Format:DVD
I wholeheartedly salute you "erisgeenhoop" (reviewer above me)! You bravely voice the true feelings of today's silent majority who dare not speak out on such matters. But you good sir, have inspired me to step forth from the gloom! I join you in brotherhood! Who needs pinheads like Bunuel, Cocteau, Godard, Resnais, Chabrol and Truffaut! And don't forget the detestable Fellini, and ultra-detestable Bergman and his ultra-ultra detestable American counterpart, Cassavetes! Thank goodness these days we have REAL directors like Cameron, Gibson (and the 'People's Director,' M. Night Shyamalan) to show everyone the true magic of motion pictures. Films like "Passion of the Christ" and my personal favorite "Transformers II," by my favorite director of all time, Michael Bay! Pure! Undiluted! Made in the USA Cinema! Un-molested by the past! And let no man say we don't have OUR modern intellectuals! We do! If we wish to ponder life's existence we have the beautiful films of the twin titans of cinema, Spike Lee and Quentin Tarantino! Need I say more? Okay, I will! Sofia Coppola! There! I said it! See! Things were never better! I love it! You love it! We all love it! Thank you sir! You made my day, week and year!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Film! January 30, 2008
Format:DVD
This is a unique film, one that's more a surreal painting come to life than it is your standard American style boring film. It was featured at Cannes and the Tribeca film festival. It's definitely worth checking out, though, and the on-screen debut of model and photographer Velvet D'amour (NOT "THE VELVET UNDERGROUND" PLEASE GET THIS RIGHT, AMAZON!) who plays "Avida."

It is unfortunate that the original poster art wasn't used for the American DVD, but I suppose that's because we Americans get silly when it comes to any nudity. But it's still a great film and I can't wait to buy it on DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish under the guise of surrealism February 9, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This flim (sic) is as surrealist as the hordes of so-called French Intellecuals who travelled to Russia in the 1930's and came back to France extolling the virtues of the Beast Stalin.
The movie resulted from badly digested youthful viewings by the flim's director of the pretentious rubbish manufactured by the likes of Bunuel, Arabal and their offshoot Jodorowsky, these days only watched in film-schools, and fortunately immediately forgotten by most filmmakers, but of course not in the Land of the Franks.
