Editorial Reviews

Hélène Angel's stunning feature-length debut presents an unsettling story of brutality and domestic violence. Claiming to have run off and joined the Foreign Legion, Coco (Bernard Blancan) returns home to the Southern Alps after a mysterious fifteen-year absence. Despite his strange and withdrawn appearance, brothers Francky (Serge Riaboukine) and Alex (Pascal Cervo) welcome him back with open arms. His two nieces, however, recognize something far more sinister in the hallow-eyed and rotten-toothed loner. Before long, their fears become a reality, as Coco's unstable and increasingly threatening presence awakens a legacy of savage aggression within the troubled family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful film of family violence December 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Powerful film about a deeply dysfunctional and violent family, and the toll it ultimately takes on the two children. Great performances. The film is both disturbingly real, and slightly surreal, as much is perceived thorough the children's eyes. This deeply divided critics, some of whom saw it as purely sadistic, but without point. But I agree with those that saw it as both a metaphor and examination of the damage to all involved done by the masculine id.
