Tip Top is the latest delightful concoction from French fabulist Serge Bozon (La France). It is a dizzying mash-up of screwball comedy and police procedural that reckons with France's colonialist legacy. Farid, an Algerian informant for the French police, is found murdered in a small French town. Two offbeat and unethical female investigators (a fiercely authoritarian Isabelle Huppert paired with an inquisitive and voyeuristic Sandrine Kiberlain) are brought in to investigate the possibility of police involvement with the murder. Meanwhile the seemingly degenerate cop with a heart of gold, Mendes (Franc,ois Damien's), acquires an eager, albeit naive Algerian informant, Youne`s (Aymen Sai"di), who quickly gets into trouble. Bozon "delivers fast and whimsical wordplay, erotic misunderstandings, and pinball-sharp comic choreography" (Richard Brody, The New Yorker) in this indescribable, irresistible comedy.
