Everybody Is a Killer


Time Out says

A small northern French town breathes a collective sigh of relief when the wife-beating local thug is found murdered, but whodunit? Is it the sadsack mechanic trying to attract the attention of his sexually bored wife, who has a thing for killers? Or the mechanic’s assistant, similarly pressed to impress an aspiring songstress? Could it be the narrator shrink, who’s trading analysis for Ferrari tune-ups with the mechanic? Deruddère’s black comedy boasts a colourful ensemble (including Dardennes-regular Gourmet as an obligingly jaded cop) but little in the way of character development, and stumbles on the mystery’s resolution.
