Last Screening: Laurent Achard (LFF 21.10.2011)

The lead, played by Pascal Cervo, is a quiet cinema manager which is about to be closed although he behaves as if this will not happen, telling regulars that there will be showings the following week. His unassuming nature, however, hides his real
character which is soon revealed. He is a serial killer. Cervo gives a convincing performance as a man in the grip of a deadly passion whil presenting a bland amiable face to the world and the director does a confident job while not hitting any great heights. Certainly he is someone whose future films will be watched.

You were obviously more taken with this than I was. I thought it was very poorly paced and not at all coherent
