on the pulp novel Laissez Bronzer Les Cadavres by Jean-Patrick
Manchette and Jean-Pierre Bastid, this film is a delicious homage to 1970's
Italian Crime Films and Spaghetti Westerns. Belgian filmmakers Helene

stealing a truckload of gold bars, a vicious gang of thieves take refuge
in the ruins of a remote village perched on the cliffs of the Mediterranean.

cops investigate, the counterculture hamlet bursts into a hallucinatory
battlefield of double-cross, intrigue and spurting blood.
