A man with a cap opens a giant cock in the middle of a pond. What will he get out of it ?
From a laughng and bucolic countryside party, the director builds the waiting on a real suspense. Something’s gonna happen, but what ? When finally “it” happens, every thing is pouring on the screen, it is litteraly vomiting itself onto the overflowing screen. It is turned into a huge mire, satured and sickening picture of an operating chaos. Without placing it into a context, without character, nor narration, the movie has no message to defend : it imposes itself as an exercise to hone its skills, raw and frank.
