and Roland (played by Dominique Rollin and Roland Maden) are a gay couple
living in Brussels. They also have an unusual relationship with an older
journalist (Georges Aminel). Looking for kicks, Dom and Roland begin stealing
cars and murdering people indiscriminately. These killers then take photos
of their conquests and send the pictures to their journalist lover, presumably
as a test to see if he can stay loyal to them and not disclose identities.
is probably no other film that so relishes gloom. The scope is constantly
dreary, whether in story or landscape. A forever gray sky hangs listlessly,
engulfing everything and everyone. The characters - Dominique and Roland
- simply exist, lacking all human empathy as they inflict pain
and suffering on bottom-feeders of society. There is no bravado in their
spree. Rather, only a maddening sense of meaningless as they torment and
kill fringe members of society, rangng from an old man on a bicycle or
to a helpless pregnant woman.
