Le grand soir Reviews
The answer is yes, it is, thanks to Kervern and Delépine's "Le Grand Soir." Looking at our society, the directors continue to explore it, to show us its margins where, they argue, our society is happening.
Take the shopping mall and its adjacent parking lot, for instance, where the action of "Le Grand Soir" takes place. If you bother to stop, to sit, to look around you and really watch the incessant movement of all those people shopping and driving and shopping back and forth, you can only stare in wonder at the sheer absurdity of it and start questioning the values that we hold dear in this society based on consumption, commercials and mortgages...
This is not new, of course, but to show it with such humour, to bring this thesis with such a sense of the absurd and the ludicrous is really a tour de force. Also, when you see it you can't help yourself to wonder about your own life. Humour and food for thought: this is the kind of films that you either accept or totally reject, it seems.
