229 LITAN (1983) Jean-Pierre Mocky's bizarre masterpiece
229 LITAN (1983) Jean-Pierre Mocky\'s bizarre masterpiece

Bizarre, Psychotic Filmmaking from French Artiste Jean-Pierre Mocky

director: Jean-Pierre Mocky
starring: Marie-Jose Nat Jean-Pierre Mocky Nino Ferrer Marysa Mocky Bill Dunn Dominique Zardi

Nora and Jock are visitors to the strange, remote village of Litan. They believe their arrival has coincided with some kind of Festival of the Dead. In fact, there are several ceremonies happening at the same time populated by people in bizarre masks, people who suddenly break into unprovoked violence, unbridled expressions of love, hate, and sexual mania. Games are played by disfranchised citizens who suddenly freeze into statues or get dissolved in the waterways by laser-esque squiggles in the water. Other people are running around covered in blood while masked gangs seem to pop out of nowhere. Plus - even worse - now, everyone seems to be chasing after Nora and Jock...

Avant-Garde filmmaker Jean-Pierre Mocky is still an active director today, making two movies in 2016 at age 88. After a decade of acting, he began helming motion pictures in 1960 and has averaged a couple films a year since then. Mocky has won numerous awards for his unusual productions, especially for this movie which took the Best Picture honor at the Avoriaz Fantastic Film Festival in 1982.

A French production with English subtitles; widescreen format (16:9), uncut version (82 min.), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC WORLD FORMAT, playable on any American machine. Extras include theatrical trailers.
