4.0 out of 5 stars Ce Jour-Là (That Day), September 30, 2007
This review is from: That Day (Ce jour-la) (DVD)
Livia is a slightly mad heir to a vast Swiss fortune. Pointpoirot is a psychotic killer with diabetes who is released from the local asylum with the "mission" to kill her. However after Livia reasons with him through the judicious swing of a hammer, Pointpoirot becomes quite besotted with the lovely, but equally nutty, Livia. But this doesn't stop him from murdering Livia's conniving relatives.

This gloriously sweet love story is an absolute delight. Elsa Zylberstein couldn't be any more gorgeous in her depiction of the ever-so-slightly insane Livia. We fall in love with her immediately. This is a performance to rival that of Audrey Tautou in Amelie.

Equally good (though not quite as cute!) is Bernard Giraudeau as Pointpoirot, providing much of the comedy as he carefully checks and rechecks the blood sugar levels of his victims. Jean-Francois Balmer is also good as Livia's trusty and staid butler, Treffle.

A beautifully sweet film despite the body count.
