Where are we?

Answer: in hell.

In a dripping cellar, men in leather coats silently sweep the sticky floor, scrubbing the walls and spraying them with disinfectant with disturbing vigor and concentration.

We are in Auschwitz.

The camp was recently liberated by the Red Army.

End of the first chapter.

Mundruczo (

Pieces of a Woman

) is not afraid to pick us up straight away with an uppercut to the stomach.

In the genre, we only see

The Son of Saul

to achieve such strength.

The second part takes place in Budapest a few years ago.

Eva is this disheveled old lady who loses her mind in her apartment where she hangs out in a fleece dressing gown.

His daughter Lena, just divorced, visits him.

A domestic deluge concludes this dispute with mythological dimensions.

Berlin today serves as the setting for the third story.

A fire breaks out in a high school.

Jonas, Lena's son, plays the scapegoat for his comrades.

Times change, not horror, nor prejudices.

The director struggles in the dark.

He films like we box.

- To have

Horror comedy by Michel Hazanavicius, 1h50

The actors are zero, the film execrable, the director at the end of the line.

It's just a start.

Very quickly, Hazanavicius reversed the steam.

The second degree, the wink, the quirky, the author of

OSS 117

is in his element.

By adapting a Japanese Z series, he is having a field day, pulling the rug from under the feet of the viewer who begs for more.

We don't know what the original version contained: the French result deserves all the praise.

This hilarious apology of the D system delights from the first to the last image.

Laughter bursts into the room.

It's like going back to the good old days of Saturday night movies.

Hemoglobin spurts out.

Heads fly.

Blood drips on the heroes.

The zombies fidget as if they've put their finger in the socket.

The money is missing.

The tricks fail.

We'll manage anyway.

The screen overflows with the joy of having a camera in your hands, multiplies the opportunities to honor the memory of the seventh art.

This bloody, crazy and controlled object makes you dizzy.

And if
