King of Escape 18 rating

A film about tractors, aphrodisiacs and forbidden love from Alain Guiraudie, the Cannes award-winning director of Stranger by the Lake.

Comedy 2009 90 mins

Director: Alain Guiraudie

Overview

A hilarious and outrageous comedy from the director of Stranger by the Lake. Armand is a gay tractor salesman and not the sharpest tool in the shed. When he rescues Curly, the daughter of his greatest rival, the two embark on a mad chase through the forest pursued by a very angry father with a gun. Totally unknown to Armand, however, is the bizarre sexual frenzy he’s ignited in the other men in town, with him as the object of their desire…

While Stranger by the Lake had its moments of droll humour, Alain Guiraudie’s earlier King of Escape is an out-and-out comedy stacked with strangeness and wild twists that will astound and delight.
