Louise-Michel (2008, 94 min, comedy). Absurdist French filmmakers Benoit Delepine and Gustave Kervern’s hilarious black comedy featuring recently-fired employees who conspire to ‘whack’ their boss! (trailer:

Louise-Michel– is a jet black comedy in which the recently-fired female employees of a children's clothing factory, led by ex-con Louise (Yolande Moreau), pool their funds together to put a ‘hit’ on their callous boss. But while security specialist Michel seems like the perfect candidate to carry out the hit, his ineptitude is so great that he attempts to sub-contract the job to a series of inexperienced - and highly inappropriate - assassins, with outrageous, and unexpected, results! (In French with English subtitles).
