Rats!

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

In this black comedy from France, a father brings home a pet rat andstrange things begin to happen. His daughter jumps out of the window andbecomes a paraplegic. His son comes out of the closet and has gay sexparties with the maid's husband. The maid has sex with the daughter'sboyfriend. The mother has sex with her gay son. But what happens to thefather is truly twisted. Directed by Francois Ozon with a cast ofunknowns, Sitcom keeps just the right tone and distance to be amusing.It's a little like John Waters crossed with Eric Rohmer.
