A surprisingly entertaining black comedy of manners and murd
Trevor Willsmer | London, England | 05/12/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Death in a French Garden was a pleasant surprise. Having particularly disliked the other Michel Delville films I've seen, I wasn't expecting much more than one of those civilized and oh so clever conceits that keeps you at a distance with its own cleverness. Instead it's a wonderfully enjoyable, semi-surreal comedy of manners and premeditated murder that has a sense of fun to it. The directorial style is particularly impressive too, with one scene overlapping with another as the last line or shot of one becomes the first of the next.
C'est la Vie's UK PAL DVD boasts a good subtitled transfer but little in the way of extras - stills gallery, biographies and unsubtitled trailers for Les Diaboliques, Une Parisienne and Les Bijoutiers di Clair de Lune."
