A dark, politically incorrect Belgian farce set in a euthanasia clinic. Kill Me Please has its moments, but suffers from a greedy desire to be edgy, humane and thought-provoking as well as hilarious. This didn't stop the jury of the Rome Film Festival from awarding it the Marc'Aurelio prize for Best Film at this year's event, and it's true that there's a freshness and originality to this grim black and white burlesque that keeps us watching through all its tonal swerves and dramatic cul-de-sacs. But in the end this is a frustrating film, never quite as poignant, desecratory or just plain funny as it would like to be.
