Ask any French person to name a Christmas film and they’ll probably mention this one first. The film is about a burlesque Christmas evening where, at the telephone hotline of “SOS for the Lonely and Depressed”, volunteers are disturbed by the arrival of slightly wacky characters who cause catastrophic situations. It is a cult film in France, highly recommended if you want to discover French humor!


Two neurotics, working for a suicide hotline on the night of Christmas Eve, get caught up in a catastrophe when a pregnant woman, her abusive boyfriend, and a transvestite visit their office. – Plot

« This irreverent classic earns its cult status by brilliantly timed performances and a script as funny as it is observant. » NY Times

‘Le Père Noël est une Ordure’ is an absolute classic – we dare you not to laugh!
