William Lamers is condemned to death by lethal injection…By law, he is allowed to make a last statement but the law does not specify how long it can be. A kind of Scheherazade male figure, “the dead man” finds himself at the center of high stakes in a crazy election campaign as well as the star of a very popular TV reality show.
Patrick Ridremont is the successful conductor of this biting satirical fable sustained by very talented actors: Francois Berléand as the gruff prison director, the late Christian Marin as the tipsy chaplain and Virginie Efira as the heartless woman.
“New unexpected turns abound and audiences get their money’s worth thanks to a clever suspense” (Ciné Média)
“One leaves the movie theatre with the pleasant feeling of having watched a film outside the norm, a film never seen before, a film that will never be made again. A unique, personal, caustic and funny work that reaches the sublime at times” (Cinephages.com)
