Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 167: Tue Jun 17

Tip Top (Bozon, 2013): Barbican Cinema, 6.30pm

This film screens as part of the East End Film Festival. Full programme here.

East End Film Festival introduction: French director and raconteur Serge Bozon (La France) returns with a sly, satirical take on the cop thriller. Two internal affairs investigators (Isabelle Huppert and Sandrine Kiberlain) join forces with a small provincial police department to investigate the murder of an Algerian informant, only to find themselves being spied upon by another officer, which reveals an increasingly bizarre series of facts about their private lives. Funny, inventive and off the wall, this is an adaptation of the Bill James novel of the same name, and is worth the price of admission for Isabelle Huppert’s wild performance alone. 

Here is the trailer.
