Still don't know what to make of this. There may be something lost in translation, I don't know... but I'm sure it's supposed to be funnier than it appears to me. A full cast of odd characters worked in Twin Peaks, but they seem to be lacking something in this. I guess I'll continue to watch to follow the plot, and hopefully it grows on me. Maybe it's the lack of music?
I think I liked the first part, this one seems less enjoyable and is nearing offensive at points seemingly for no reason yet, though it probably serves a purpose later in the plot but leaves this episode a bit tainted.
This madness continues. The kid at the heart of it is uncomfortably racist, but that's part of the deal here. We are getting a funny window into the darker side of small time France. The same great long establishing shots, and letting us watch people think. The detective still completely mad with his clown work, and still strangely compelling. The other clowns starting to show their red noses.
