It starts off with Fernando Arrabal in a shop full of rat poison and huge traps showing off his wares. Then after a brief interlude with a couple of nuns on bicycles, we come to the main part of the film. Those two queens of the French New Wave Bernadette Lafont and Bulle Ogier run amok in a large, old house, attacking it with axes and breaking into a safe with a blow torch. They also plaster their faces with exaggerated makeup, throw food and wander around in their undies. There is strange clanking machinery, echoes of the Frankenstein creation myth and eyes peering through the holes in a family portrait. Not really a horror film, but it ends up riffing on horror motifs.
