Kill Me Please

de Olias Barco



Dr. Kruger’s vital goal is to eliminate the stigma connected to the word “suicide” Why consider it a tragedy when it could be a simple, unimportant medical operation? His exclusive clinic has a fairly peculiar list of patients: from a comedian who’s been diagnosed with terminal cancer to a young, to a cabaret singer who’s lost his voice to a self destructive young woman. Kill Me Please isn’t afraid to deal with the delicate subject of euthanasia with the nastiness that’s characteristic of the best Belgian cinema. There’s no better guarantee for that than the presence of Benoit Poelvoorde, the unforgettable leading man in C'est arrivé près de chez vous.
