THE SUNDAY FILM

After winning the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film for Get Your Handkerchiefs Ready, Bertrand Blier presents the screenplay for Cold buffet, written in two weeks after a recurring dream in which he was chased by the police and inspired by the personality of Depardieu himself, but the project does not thrill anyone, with the exception of producer Alain Sarde. Incarnated by the Depardieu-Bernard Blier-Jean Carmet trio, the story follows an unemployed man, a strange police inspector and an assassin drawn into a series of surreal events.

Misunderstood by the public when it came out (who went so far as to ask for reimbursement after the screening!), Blier’s work nevertheless became cult over the years, supported by rave reviews and a César for Best Screenplay. The opening sequence, both hilarious and chilling, with Michel Serrault as a murdered fellow in the RER effectively sets the tone for this grating farce which brilliantly and cynically denounces the sad reality of a dehumanized world. A UFO in French cinema, which has an average viewer rating of 3.9/5 on AlloCiné.
