A satirical look at French society, the film starts out innocently enough: an elderly couple enters a dance competition to earn extra money for bills, not wanting to be a burden to their children. It goes quickly off the rails from there as we are introduced to the rest of the characters: a corrupt politician, an insecure lawyer obsessed with social status, and a teenager eager to lose her virginity. Playing like a Christopher Guest movie hijacked by Ari Aster, BLOODY ORANGES is full of acerbic, pitch-black humor and eye-watering scenes of violence.
