01. THE KILLER OF MONTMARTRE, 50’
France 2007

Direction: Borislav Sajtinac
Animation: Borislav Sajtinac
Script: Borislav Sajtinac
Editor: Borislav Sajtinac
Music: Renaud Barbier
Producer Hélène Sajtinac

Tired of his domineering mother Francois, an artist, decides to kill her. His killing spree doesn’t end there and soon the authorities are looking for a serial killer. One day he notices a mysterious entrance that leads him into an arctic wasteland, ruled by Death. Death regales the artist with tales life and love: his adventures with the navy, the great love of his life, the submarine captain and the child they had together. The artist thinks he can outwit both the law and Death but he will soon meet his master.
Full of droll humour The Killer Of Montmartre is imbued with the anarchic spirit of Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python animations and the macabre touch of comic book creator Richard Sala. Sajtinac’s vividly rendered expressionistic backgrounds prove a match for his ability to mix surreal whimsy with irreverent wit.

You’ll see an accordion player who has no ear for music who decides to resolve his awkward situation once and for all, an infatuated man who, waiting in a café for his lover to arrive, encounters the ghosts of previous customers, and two drunks who come across a magic genie who makes his wishes come true. And let’s not forget the lamplighter and her faithful little dog…
