Here’s a brilliantly funny burlesque of twisty films noir, set at Christmas. Directed by Vincent Bal in 1996, it’s in Belgian, with English subtitles, but is quite watchable and a good deal of fun. It can be purchased on DVD here.

(Thanks to The Seattle Mystery Bookshop and TAC correspondent Mike Gray for letting us know about the film.)

Enjoy The Bloody Olive.
