"Café Serré" Vincent E Sousa, Bertrand Avril, Yann de Préval and Denis Bouyer (2009)

Like that milkshake that's all too soon down to the froth, I could have done with another minute in Café Serré but it's terrific while it lasts. Another from the production line of Supinfocom, I'm well used to technical mastery of the software, 3dsMax, Photoshop, After Effects, but the key is whether or not there's anything beneath the froth. And here there is substance, often pink, sticky and sweet as our vacant cop takes a well earned break to the strains of Fats Domino's Kansas City. When an intruder helps himself to the takings the cop solves the crime with a lick of his gun barrel. It's worth noting that the film is the product of second years, Vincent E Sousa, Bertrand Avril, Yann de Préval and Denis Bouyer. In other words, there's a graduation movie to come in 2011. Café Serré took them only four weeks, pretty impressive really, revealing the team's obvious comic talent and sense of timing. Extra time might have added other characters and maybe given a little less fuzziness to the cop's rubbery face, though maybe they are just like that. Great, great music!
