Foutaises

France, 1989 (MIFF 1990, Fiction)

Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet

The title, which is French slang for "nonsense" or "twaddle", belies the neat, pithy structure and smartly edited pace of this laterally linked series of the filmmaker's pet peeves and passions. The hilarious list of likes and dislikes forms a sensational palette. Tres agreable, tres amusant.
