Enjoying death...
10 May 2004 | by (Toulouse, France) – See all my reviews

This "film" is actually a made for TV mini-series. Its theme is death, and each segment is handled by a different French director. Some of these directors are well-known artists (Claude Chabrol, Georges Lautner), many are new men on the scene (most of them have already made a long-length movie, though). The segments are very uneven as could be expected. Personally, I'll only remember the "Confession" segment, which is why I've rentes the whole thing. The main attraction here is Christopher Lee playing... death, a fitting role if there ever was one. The British actor plays the reaper with his usual charm and witty humour has been added to the character. He is opposed to a priest played by the late French character actor Ticky Holgado, which accounts for a pretty funny mixture. Lee speaks in a perfectly enunciated French, in those dark murmuring tones that suits his characters so well. The segment is directed by René Manzor, who has an interest in horror cinema, which is a rare case among French directors. This segment is worth a watch, while even Chabrol and Lautner disappoint...
