Le Grand Soir

 

aka: The Big Night
France 2012, 92 minutes
Dir. Benoit Delepine, Gustave Kervern
In French with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy / Punk

 

Aroview: A wrinkling middle-aged punk and his soon-to-be-unemployed middle-class brother attempt to spark a cultural revolution by staging a demonstration inside of a soulless shopping mall.

Ticklish send up of capitalist ideology and anarchist behaviour is particularly successful at blending broad humour with dark themes, with its chalk-and-cheese leads a comic revelation as wannabe anti-authoritarians. Winner of the Cannes Un Certain Regard in 2012.
