Director: Dominik Moll
French filmmakers seem to be really good at psyching us out by showing us just how tasteless and twisted our intuitions can be. Lemming is clearly more evidence that the French are out to get us. They may not want our women or children but they very clearly crave our souls.
Calvaire (The Ordeal)
Director: Fabrice Du Welz
Calvaire is just about watchable thanks to the exquisite cinematography and sylvan set designs. Shot in the Belgian province of Lièg, the film begins at a lethargic pace with its protagonist, a lounge singer, lost in an obscure village after a car breakdown. The village is obviously filled with psychopathic people and hence the young man is faced with all sorts of hideous propositions.
