Movie Info

Absurdist duo Benoit Delepine and Gustave Kervern follow-up 2004's Aaltra with this sparse black comedy in which the recently-fired female employees at a children's clothing factory pool their funds to put a hit on their callous boss. Out of work and down on her luck, ex-con Louise (Yolande Moreau) proposes to her jobless sisters that they do something useful by ridding the world of the man who put them all in their current situation. But while security specialist Michel (Bouli Lanners) seems … More

Critic Reviews for Louise-Michel

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (3) | DVD (2)

Offers a rousing reminder of the power (and eccentricities) of the pissed-off proletariat.

Top Critic

Who knew empowerment could be so winning and so simultaneously grotesque?

Full Review… | November 17, 2013
Film Comment Magazine

Even by English-language black comedy standards, it's a decidedly odd mixture of fun and revenge.

Full Review… | May 27, 2011
Birmingham Mail

Some definite laughs.

Full Review… | March 31, 2011
Guardian

Definitely more enjoyable when you break it down into bits and pieces in your head afterwards.

Full Review… | March 31, 2011
Little White Lies

Although directors Gustave Kervern and Benoît Delépine strive a little too hard at times for outrage, it's still wickedly funny, and Moreau and Lanners are terrific as the grotesque anti-heroes.

Radio Times

A darkly funny film in the same vein as Micmacs, in this French crime caper political correctness gets le boot.

Full Review… | March 30, 2011
Empire Magazine

The laughs are defiantly non-PC, but there's no doubting the sympathetic handling of the working-class heroes, nor the righteous rage at the injustices of contemporary capitalism.

Total Film

This is the best comedy I've seen since Burn After Reading or Death At A Funeral. It's terrific.

Full Review… | October 9, 2009
At the Movies (Australia)

These two losers are so uncharming, so witless, so unfunny that I really found this film about them an arduous experience.

Full Review… | October 9, 2009
At the Movies (Australia)

Often crass and never politically correct, Louise-Michel ultimately fails to reach its potential.

Full Review… | October 8, 2009
Empire Magazine Australasia

As stylists, Kervern and Delepine specialise in turning industrial landscapes into cartoon playgrounds, through sight gags that rely on offscreen space -- leaving crucial events to the imagination.

Full Review… | October 8, 2009
The Age (Australia)

Complete with an absurdist black humour and a bizarre collection of farcical set pieces, Louise-Michel is a hit and miss affair.

Full Review… | October 8, 2009
FILMINK (Australia)

I love good black comedy, but I really didn't get this one. Perhaps it whizzed over my head like some of those bullets.

Full Review… | October 2, 2009
Urban Cinefile

In its funniest moments, the film displays the delicate timing of the best silent comedies.

Full Review… | March 30, 2009
Film-Forward.com

Anarchic craziness makes the revolutionary message go down smoothly in Louise-Michel.
