Le Père Noël Est une Ordure (Santa Claus is a Stinker)
Two snooty neurotics working for a suicide prevention hotline spend the Christmas Eve from hell when a number of visitors stop by their office, including a pregnant woman, her abusive partner and a lonely transvestite. L’Équipe du Splendid who wrote and star in the film shaped French comedy in the late 70s and 80s with their sharp satirical style. This very dark comedy, adapted from one of their plays, has become a cult classic. [Advised certificate: 18]
