We get into the darkness of the cinema room while a woman on screen is playing a cabaret scene. She is has a red feathered dress on, and moves expressively, in de midst of actors, objects, music, and an attentive audience. She goes on to an acrobatic moment, as another actor pulls her up in the air with a rope. She falls down like a thunder, people scream, but her howl of pain is louder, whilst ininterruptedly cursing the man who let her fall. The opening scene sets the pace and tone of the film: fast and riotous. I instantly knew i would like it.
