Tip Top
2013
France/Luxembourg/Belgium | Arabic and French with English subtitles | Format: DCP | 106 minutes

Exclusive one week run opens December 12!

Co-written with Axelle Ropert, Serge Bozon’s much-anticipated follow-up to 2007’s La France is a one-of-a-kind screwball procedural adapted from a pulp novel by Welsh writer Bill James. Meticulous and eccentric internal-affairs investigator Esther (Isabelle Huppert) and her mousy new partner Sally (Sandrine Kiberlain), recently demoted due to a mysterious ethics violation, are summoned to look into the Villeneuve police department after the murder of an Algerian informant. As entanglements ensue with belligerent local detective Mendès (a very funny François Damiens), Bozon throws together seemingly mismatched elements with aplomb: exploring the women detectives’ sexual kinks even as he comments on racism and postcolonial tensions. In keeping with its director’s background in criticism, Tip Top is an exploration of policier tropes but also a bold, strange, often delightful film that looks, sounds and moves like nothing else in its genre(s). A Kino Lorber release.

Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2014
Cannes Film Festival 2013

"Audaciously balances slapstick... with a fiercely intelligent probing of the still-knotty legacy of France’s colonialist past." —Melissa Anderson, Artforum

"An utterly brazen mix of screwball comedy, film noir and sharp social commentary that... benefits immeasurably from actors willing to go as far out on a limb as their intrepid director." —Scott Foundas, Variety
