Synopsis

Eric, sitcom producer and Fred the main actor of the show, wake up on morning in the same bed, with a young, dead woman lying besides them. In a panic, they decide to hide the corpse in Eric’s convertible truck until they can think of a way to dispose of the body. As the day wears on, the sitcom and their own lives claim all their attention, and neither of them makes a move…

Subject

"The screenplay's two facets—sitcom and thriller—make it possible to develop comic situations alongside other situations that are a good deal blacker. I wanted to combine the funny side with the emotional side in both the sitcom part and the thriller part. Furthermore, the fact of having a corpse in the car throughout the film gave all the comic scenes a different tone, creating a cruel, heavy atmosphere that hardly needed stressing."

(Michel Hazanavicius)
