Average Mocky
21 April 2002 | by SuperwonderscopeSee all my reviews

I've always been a great fan of any Mocky's work. These last years have been increasingly difficult as he's unable to get any decent budget. This one is nearby a zerobudget...but you still get the flavour of his earliest works.

5 candidates for the french presidency are killed one by one by members of a secret society lead by "L'araignée" (The Spider). Everyone has got a spider tattoo on his wrist and are all driven by money...except the leader who oviously has another plan in mind. Mocky played a detective on the tracks of what may be a policital-mafia-financial-whatever plot to take over power in France.

Usual subjects...some funny moments (two of the candidates end up lovers) but it's more or less same stuff as before. Everyone is rotten and corrupted (police, jounalists, candidates...) and few are escaping MOcky's bullets. It's technically lousy, most of the actors can't seem to act properly, the dialogues are lame , the plot has more holes than ten thousands golf playgrounds altogether. No doubt : this is 100% Mocky.

But...that's his style , whatever anyone may say. And if agree to forget all the flaws (technical or narrative), it's still funny and devious. He's probably the only french director alive able to fight the political correctness that is paralyzing the french society.

The parallel with the political campaign in 2002 for the french President is obvious and even if the targets are easy, it's always refreshing to know that someone still cares to push the right buttons.
