Day 5 : Louise and Michel

The highlight of this film was the introduction by the film-makers funny, timely and well paced.

A French Comedy that could have been incredibly funny, but wasn't. A group of workers who arrive at their factory one day to find the management have absconded with everything. They vote to pool their union payouts to do something. Louise (an ex-criminal) suggests hiring a hitman to kill the boss and they all agree (inexplicably).

She hires an incompetent Security Guard to carry out the hit. The film then bumbles along with fits of incompetence violence and not much comedy at all.

Alas I left before the end...I think I laughed twice in just over an hour.
