Patrice Leconte's The Suicide Shop
The Suicide Shop plays tonight (ie., Tuesday) at the Vancity Theatre; director Patrice Leconte has surprised the heck out of me with this, an animated musical, which, if it weren't for its somewhat dark premise, would seem to sit very strangely next to films like Monsieur Hire (still my favourite of his films, though there are many I've missed). I have not previewed it, but if the gods are with me, I'll be seeing it theatrically tomorrow...
