25 February – Themroc

A depressed worker in a dead end job suddenly breaks free of all his restrictions, making love to his sister and demolishing the walls of his apartment. An excellent anti-authoritarian comedy in which normal dialogue is replaced by an invented language of groans and whistles.

Made in 1972, the film is directed by Claude Faraldo and stars French-Italian actor Michel Piccoli and Beatrice Romand. According to Jan Dawson the film “succeeds in being poetic without being arty and uses laughter as a critical tactic”.
