Movie Info

Patrice Leconte adapts Jean Teulé's darkly comic 2007 novel into a animated musical concerning a young child with a sunny disposition born into a family that thrives on the misery of others. Since 1854, the Tuvache family has owned a small shop catering to the suicidal impulses of its depressed clientele.

Too grisly for kids, or at least their ticket-buying parents. At the same time, the bouncy musical numbers with their contorted rhymes are unlikely to be embraced by any self-respecting Goth teen.

The animation is great, in its stark, mostly monochromatic way, but the music merely serviceable.

The ever-diverse Patrice Leconte has made an original, darkly humorous animation about a store assisting suicidals.

After the success of the irreverent The Book of Mormon, this would be a natural for the stage-Broadway would be so lucky.

This is a film of two halves, with the half involving sweetness and light muddled and limp in comparison to its tougher, more sinister flipside, while the ending is almost unforgivably trite.

An exceedingly off-the-wall animated endeavor...

The Suicide Shop is darkly drawn comedy taken to uncomfortable lengths (and, parents, it's definitely not a film for the whole family).

Audience Reviews for Le magasin des suicides (The Suicide Shop)

Leconte seems unsure about the tone of the story, mixing playful musical numbers with a morbid, gloomy subject that is definitely not for children. At the end, what we are left with is a disappointing animation that is too dark for kids and too silly and optimistic for adults.
