Le père Noël est une ordure

The Cinefamily

Madcap hijinx spiral to distasteful heights, while pratfalls blend seamlessly with domestic abuse, in this frosty carol-cum-eulogy for that piece of garbage, Father Christmas (the title’s literal translation). Two well-meaning but inept volunteers get stuck working the phones at a suicide hotline on Christmas Eve. When their mentally unbalanced callers decide to pay them a visit, their yuletide quest to bring hope to the disenfranchised snowballs into a manic spree of sexual misadventure and holiday-induced violence.
