Doctor Kruger’s clinic, deep in the woods, receives state funding so that suicide is no longer a solitary tragedy but an assisted medical intervention. Each day, Doctor Kruger receives his rich patients, listens to them one by one, and examines with them the reasons that justify – or not – their decision. Before carrying out the suicide, each person sees his last wish fulfiled: a special lunch with gourmet food and fine wines, call girl or any other fancy! But the “specialty” of the clinic soon fuels the anger of the local villagers. And everyone will learn that no-one, but no-one, is allowed to give Death orders. —unifrance.org
Feels half realized, as the poster below me stated, there are two clear elements to this film - and unfortunately, this draws away from what could've been a perfectly executed piece of cinema. Instead, what we get is a mediocre comedy that feels rushed. I'm probably doing this movie less justice than it deserves, but honestly, I was just really disappointed. Not awful, just not as good as its potential.
I thought the first half of the film, which focused on the idiosyncrasies of the suicidal cast, was a lot more interesting than the second half of the film, in which pretty much every character goes completely insane and lots of people die (though not as quite as expected). If you like your humor black, and your films black and white, then I'd definitely recommend checking this out.
