The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq

The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq ★★★★

Nr 110 on All Films I Saw 2015 (Ranked)

I'm guessing there is no in between from loving or hating the humour utilised to recount for the events that happened in 2011, when famous French author Michel Houellebecq was kidnapped, but I'm certainly one of those who double up with laughter when Michel and one of his abductors are discussing a book he's written about HP Lovecraft and he's constantly referred to as Warcraft.

The contrast between the intellectual world and the testosterone filled world of bodybuilding martial arts works out splendidly and here and there Houellebecq jumps on the opportunity to give us small portions of his philosophy and views on the world.

Well worth a look.
