Movie Info

The owner of a coat hanger factory somewhere in the French Picardy empties it in the middle of the night. The next morning, the female factory workers arrive to discover that everything has been cleared out and that the management has embraced the notion of outsourcing their jobs. In response, the women decide to pool their low wages towards a common project: hiring a professional to kill their boss.

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

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

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

Some definite laughs.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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