Kill the Referee / A mort, l’arbitre (15)
In one of his blackest of black comedies Jean-Pierre Mocky turns his satirical ire on football supporters – especially the ones with Neanderthal tendencies who are likely to go on an orgy of self-destruction if their team fails to win a match. Starring pop singer Eddy Mitchell as the referee Maurice who is hunted by an axe-wielding Michel Serrault as a deranged supporter. He offers a penalty to one of the teams, allowing them to win the match, but this causes a furore amongst the supporters of the opposing team. Watch out: Mocky himself appears as a police inspector.
