I wrote a review but I'm not sure it got published. I just wanted to add that I didn't see it like the French Pulp Fiction, but just something totally unique.

This was a crazy ride. The first half was a bit underwhelming - so much talk of politics, and scenes of the characters yelling around table settings (the dance judges, and the mother's birthday party). I found those scenes to grate on my nerves, although that may have been the point of those scenes. However, the second half tied everything together in a wild and disturbing, sometimes comical, ride. This was pretty masterfully done, however I didn't quite enjoy all of the constant political talk and yelling. But I would definitely recommend.

Yes, it’s the French Pulp Fiction. Yes, it gets WILD. The beginning is pretty boring and pointless, at least it seems that way, but the setup is necessary. They’re laying the groundwork, character building, etc. Once it ramps up, it RAMPS UP. If you can get through the EXTREME Frenchness, it’s worth it. Ends well. Deserves the five skull rating, although this isn’t really a horror film.

Spoilers ahead, When I read the description it sounded like pulp fiction which is one of my favorite movies of all time so I saw a review calling it the french pulp fiction and knew I had to watch it . This kind of storytelling with so many plots thrown in that all cross paths is cool and this movie pushed the envelope so far it had me cringing. Way to not hold back, hard to follow at times but love the ending with justice being served in more ways than one. Glad I finally saw it , warning not for people who are easily grossed out or offended.
