Bloody Oranges, dir. Jean-Christophe Meurisse, France 2021, 102 min., French with English subtitles, 18


The second feature from French director Jean-Christophe Meurisse (Apnée) is an acerbic satire on life, love and social mores in contemporary France. Hilarious, shocking and constantly provocative, Bloody Oranges knits together four seemingly disparate moments in the lives of different people and families into a portrait of a society apparently on the brink of decay.

A retired couple (Olivier Saladin and Lorella Cravotta) try to win a rock dance competition to dig themselves out of debt. A crooked finance minister (Christophe Paou) is suspected of tax fraud. A young lawyer (Alexandre Steiger) attempts, misguidedly, to climb the social ladder. A teenager exploring her sexuality (Lilith Grasmurg) makes the acquaintance of a pervert. Together, these four stories cross boundaries of age and class to highlight how the structural systems in France protect the elite – and, ultimately, punish everyone else.
