Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Laura Abraham
Bertrand Blier was coming down from his Oscar win for Get Out Your Handkerchiefs when he directed Buffet Froid. Starring the prolific Gérard Depardieu as Alphonse Tram, the film also stars Jean Carmet (who later won a Cesar award for Best Supporting Actor in Les Miserables) and Bernard Blier, the director's father. The cast keeps this highly complex, dark comedy afloat and takes full advantage of the opportunities its script provides for them to play off one another's talents. Their ensemble acting is just one admirable aspect of Blier's dark, surrealist comedy, a fine work that is far more accessible than many French films of the same period. For a little absurd French comedy without too much baggage, look no further.
