C'est arrivé près de chez vous = Man bites dog (It happened in your neighborhood) by Rémy Belvaux( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Man bites dog" is a movie about a charming, poetry-reciting, philosophizing homicidal maniac whose actions are recorded by a film crew. Simultaneously repelled and fascinated, the filmmakers in this spoof of reality TV find themselves drawn into the hitman's murderous activities. As the body count grows, the comedy turns horribly real until the line between film and fact is blurred to the most shocking extreme
Alléluia by Fabrice Du Welz( Visual )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aaltra : a road movie by Benoît Delépine( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in French and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comedians Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern, who wrote, directed, and co-star in this irreverent road movie, show a distinct flair for understated physical comedy and defiantly non-PC humor. Rural neighbors who hate each other come to blows one day on a farm and get tangled up in an agricultural tractor, leaving them both paralyzed, wheelchair-bound, and simmering with spite. But rather than feel sorry for themselves, the embittered paraplegics decide to seek revenge against the tractor's manufacturer. They take to the road, redirecting their frustrations with their plights towards the people they meet on the way to Helsinki. Captured in sharp black-and-white Cinemascope photography that complements its exquisite Tati-like sight gags, Aaltra undermines conventional attitudes toward the disabled with its dry wit and acerbic, vengeful characters. Look for some recognizable cameos, including famous Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki
