Philipe Noiret is one of my favourite actors. I've probably seen that film too Dolls. I used to watch a lot of French surreal cinema, anything by Bunuel was fine with me.

I watched this as a kid at my grans one evening in the late 70's/early 80's with a couple of my cousins when all the elders had gone out and it has stayed with me forever. Every time i ever had to use a phone box after, i thought of this film and to some extent, i still do.

There was lots of 'noir' stuff in the 60s/70s designed to fuck with your head - oh, the horror and futility of it all - there's no escape !

Remember 'The Prisoner' and 'The Red Balloon' ? https://youtu.be/sH0l4uqienk
