Rated R
Running Time: 91min


Merci Docteur Rey(2004) Thomas is recruited into an illicit love triangle to watch a much older man's sexual liaison, but ends up witnessing what turns out to be his murder. The next day Thomas' opera diva mother informs him that his long lost father has been in Paris, until the previous night when he was murdered. Realizing this was the murder he witnessed, Thomas is now thrust into a maelstrom of off-the-wall encounters and mistaken identities, including an eccentric actress who has come totally unhinged by the death of her psychiatrist, the infamous Dr. Rey. With Paris as the backdrop, a wonderful soundtrack, a whimsical homage to film and celebrity, and a plot reminiscent of Agatha Christie at her best, you have the marvelous Merci Docteur Rey.
A contemporary French farce about narcissism and crazy love that is as literate as it is loopy. --Jan Stuart,
If it were a drink, it would be pink champagne. --Isabel Regnier, Le Monde
