A very black comedy, set in an apartment block somewhere in post apocalyptic France,. The story focuses on a collection of bizarre tenants, their predatory landlord and his unusual culinary proclivities.

Very atmospheric, although it is difficult to imagine what apocalypse has struck, or when - presumably some time in the twentieth century. It's also a rather touching love story. There is something very special about Dominique Pinon, and the character he portrays.

If you liked Terry gilliam's movie, Brazil, then you'll like this. If you didn't, you won't.
