Road Games


Road Games is a thriller set in the French countryside where Englishman Jack (Andrew Simpson) is hitchhiking along a notorious stretch of road where a serial killer is said to be at work. Having no luck getting anyone to pull over for him, he eventually comes across a couple fighting in a car, in which Véronique (Joséphine de La Baume) gets out and leaves the car before it drives off. After spending the night sleeping the in scrub, the next day, Jack and Véronique finally catch a break when a local Grizard (Frédéric Pierrot) pulls over and picks them up although Véronique is none too happy about this. Grizard tells Jack that there is a strike on and the ferries back to England have all stopped and offers to set he and Véronique up for the night. Grizard introduces them to his American artist wife Mary (Barbara Crampton), who seems unsettled about something, but they have dinner although they have to improvise as Jack is a vegetarian. Later that night, Véronique sleeps with Jack, but in the morning, she is gone and Grizard hastily tries to get Jack to leave despite the ferry strike. Jack is then hit over the head and tied up by a local road kill collector (Féodor Atkine) and forced to eat meat and then bundled up in his truck from which Jack escapes back to Grizard's house where he finds Véronique tied up. He helps her escape, but Grizard, Mary and the road kill collector are close behind, but maybe they aren't the real problem...

Frustrating but enticing thriller that maybe puts too many eggs in the basket and ends up with a tangled plot that doesn't really work. The addition of the road kill collector is too confusing and doesn't seem to add much except a red herring and to the running time. I think the best that can be said is that it's an almost movie. And I like Joséphine de La Baume from stuff like Kiss of the Damned and Listen Up Philip, so I wasn't going to miss this movie.
