Goupi Mains Rouges

The French peasantry sometimes affects that traditionally 'Welsh' habit of distinguishing each owner of a widely shared name by affixing some characteristic trait to it. Thus 'Goupi the Red-Handed', a poacher and the blackest sheep of a rural family in the throes of treasure-hunting. Black, not red, is in fact the dominant tonality of this bracingly mean-spirited melodrama, whose sombre, underlit visuals give the impression that the whole film was shot during a curfew.
