A black comedy/surrealist nightmare set in
post-Apocalyptic France where due to food shortages, a butcher serves up the residents of the flats above his shop.
The production design of the movie is
fantastic, playing out like a French version of the Terry Gilliam movie Brazil.
It's offbeat, but very entertaining.
Considering the low budget, all the visuals are striking.
