Plot – Spoilers:
Loosely based on the American Lonely Hearts Killers, the setting here is Belgium.

Gloria, a single mom, works at a morgue and is suitably dead inside. Until she meets Michel, who initially seems cringe, but blows her away into multicolored hues with his sexual prowess – a skill he honed practicing on his mother. Gloria can’t stop giggling around Michel after that and when he dumps her, she leaves her daughter with a friend and goes looking for him.

The pair realize they’re fucked up enough to be a couple and devise a plan to seduce and murder older women for money. Problem is, Gloria suffers from a type of premature ejaculation when it comes to Michel’s dick taking care of other women. When her obsessive jealousy takes over, she isn’t able to control her rage and instead explodes, often well-before they’ve extracted any meaningful money out of their victims.

This is the second in Fabrice Du Welz’s Ardennes trilogy, after Calvaire, and once again features fine performances from its two leads.

He had a reasonable thing going before Gloria.

After watching this again I def feel like about half an hour was cut out of the final edit. I think there was more to the rituals performed (love spells) with unintended consequences etc. Plus it just jumps in and out of a wedding ceremony with a massive altar erected as well as the fire dance scene which seems ritualistic. Also character development and the relationship with her daughter. It’s like oh yeah she’s got a daughter. But it eludes to more as Gloria tells Michel “Why didn’t you try to do things with my daughter!?” But he’s only with the kid one time? Weird. IDK maybe they were going for this frenzied jarring type of storytelling.

This is a great film powered by two excellent performances from the lead actor and actress. I can’t recall ever seeing Laurent Lucas in a bad film. Still, the best film version of the infamous ‘lonely hearts’ killings remains Leonard Kastle’s stark B&W gem ‘The Honeymoon Killers’ 1970. If you haven’t seen it and found this fascinating, proceed immediately.

This message is for gay little elementary school cry baby cowards only. Here’s the news, you little fucking faggots, and listen carefully because I am only going to say this once. Legislation is being drawn up in the Senate as we speak to ban little fucking assholes that are 13 years old and under from making comments on the internet. It is getting bi-partisan support (just about the only thing that Republicans and Democrats can agree on) as well as international support. That means your little cry baby faggot days are numbered on here. The bill is almost certain to pass. Better get your comments in now you little fucking faggots before you can’t. Ha ha you fucking pussies. There are some big words in this comment that little shit for brains faggots like yourselves may not understand. Break out the dictionary for the first time in your life you stupid fucks. Only respond to this comment if you know for sure that you are a little gay cry baby coward. Stay safe you little fucking pussies.

Hallelujah” is a song written by Canadian singer Leonard Cohen, originally released on his album Various Positions (1984). Achieving little initial success,[1] the song found greater popular acclaim through a new version recorded by John Cale in 1991. Cale’s version inspired a 1994 recording by Jeff Buckley that in 2004 was ranked number 259 on Rolling Stone’s “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”. The song achieved widespread popularity after Cale’s version of it was featured in the 2001 film Shrek.[3][4] Many other arrangements have been performed in recordings and in concert, with more than 300 versions known.[5] The song has been used in film and television soundtracks and televised talent contests. “Hallelujah” experienced renewed interest following Cohen’s death in November 2016 and re-appeared on international singles charts, including entering the American Billboard Hot 100 for the first time.[6] History Leonard Cohen’s studio recording 0:26 Partial excerpt of first verse and chorus. First included in Cohen’s 1984 album Various Positions. Jeff Buckley “Hallelujah” cover excerpt 0:31 From the album Grace, released in 1994. In 2007, Sony BMG rereleased the album (subtitled “The Legacy Edition”) with a live music video of the song. Problems playing these files? See media help. Cohen is reputed to have written around 80[7] to as many as 180[8] draft verses for “Hallelujah”—a number affected by the accounting question that he had many versions of the same line.[9] Cohen is said to have claimed 150 draft verses, a claim substantiated by his notebooks containing manifold revisions and… Read more »
