Venison's Off the MenuBy Grizzlybear from Swindon, England , 24 Oct 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]A somewhat confused effort by Marchand. Is it a thriller, a detective story or a dark love story? It really does not function well as any of these. Sophie Quinton is easy enough on the eye and Laurent Lucas has a degree of screen presence, but the material they have to work with is just not strong enough and the viewer is told far too much too soon thereby spoiling any tension in the final half of the film.

Not really worth watchingBy hydra9 (4 reviews) from Poole , 15 May 2010I came to this movie because of the director's connection to Dominik Moll, who wrote and directed two excellent movies - 'Harry, He's Here To Help' and 'Lemming'. Unfortunately, I was left feeling as though viewing this film had been a waste of time. It starts off brilliantly, and maintains a slow but perfectly gripping pace throughout the first hour or so. However, as the movie goes on, it begins to drag and the events and plot twists become ever more unbelievable and/or cliched. The same goes for character motivations. The film is wonderfully shot and, as I said, brilliant for the first half (first two thirds, even). But then it's a rapid slide downhill. By the end, it had become a story that had outstayed its welcome and that I just wasn't able to buy into. If you want to see a good film about sinister goings-on in a hospital, then watch 'Coma' (dir. Michael Crichton) - which is also very nicely shot. And if you like European cinema and haven't yet seen Dominik Moll's films, then check them out. Gilles Marchand's movie has a lot of promise but manages to blow it all. He's clearly a talented writer and director, and his upcoming movie 'Black Heaven' does look interesting. Let's hope that one turns out better...
so much for the french health serviceBy richarpo (14 reviews) from Manchester , 22 Jan 2010This film certainly accomplishes what it sets out to achieve, in creating a surreal situation, but toned down, and without the full Hitchcockian degree of melodrama. It is slowish-paced and does not dwell very much on the sordid recesses of the perpetrator's mind, all of which leads to a restrained and light production. All shot on location in one single place which gave a stylish, uniform and futuristic look to the film.
DissapointingBy a customer from Norwich , 31 Jan 2009High expectations, but couldn't really get to grips with this one. Didn't enjoy it. Not in the right mood? May have to watch it again some time to make sure.
Who killed BambiBy Portadownred (6 reviews) from Portadown , 19 Dec 2008I do not mind watching films with subtitles but this one was infuriating. The problem with this film is that it was spoilt by the lack of subtitles. There is a lot more dialogue in the film than is being translated into subtitles which leaves the viewer trying to make assumptions to the conversations and storyline. The storyline could just about be followed but if you are going to rent this then brush up on the French or otherwise do not rent as I could tell you the storyline in about 30 words.
confusingBy a customer from London , 05 Jul 2008this film was ok if not for the subtitles i found the plotline hard to follow i did not know what the film was supposed to be about alright if you have nothing better to do.
