Described as “a cheerful nightmare” by daily newspaper Le Monde when it opened in France, BUFFET FROID is set in a surreal world of urban alienation, senseless violence and black humor, not unlike Kubrick’s A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. Beginning with a random stabbing in a deserted subway station, the story moves from one killing to the next, bringing together young unemployed Alphonse Tram (Gérard Depardieu) his wife’s quasy murderer (Jean Carmet) and a police inspector with an impulse to kill everytime he hears a Brahms quintet  (Bernard Blier).
