Charles (Brian A. Levine) has killed 100 people in his life - and now he decides he's had enough, he wants to retire, thus lives in a house on the Côte d'Azur like a hermit, is looking for a woman to spend the rest of his life with, and wants to buy a yacht. Good thing then that his last job brought him 2 millions of extra cash from Burgess (Ray Ash), the husband of his hit (Celia Drummond) who paid him the money in order to let him live. Charles even thinks he has found the woman to spend his time with, Lisa (Celia Muir), his somewhat naive and bubbly but sexy cleaning lady - he hasn't told her yet of course ...

Thing is, Lisa has a boyfriend, Denny (Darren Bransford), a hot-headed punk she invites over while Charles is out yacht-shopping, and who has his own ideas how to turn Lisa's job at Charles's house into good money - by pretending it's their house and cheating interested would-be tenants out of their money. And it works, too, but then Denny finds a gun among Charles's things and figures its better to rob the suckers they've lured into their scheme at gunpoint, tie them up and keep them in the laundry room.

Meanwhile, a couple of con-men (Lee Cheney, James Privett) almost succeed in cheating Charles out of the 2 millions, and it takes a long chase and quite a bit of torture for Charles to get the money back. Under normal circumstances, he would then have shot the con-men dead, but heck, he has turned a new leaf ...

Thing is, the con-men rather by chance hook up with Denny and he takes them up with him to Charles's house, which they then turn into a bloodbath shooting all of Denny's captives.

Oh, I guess I should also tell you about Clancy (Kate Loustau), a hitwoman and colleague of Charles who's so pissed at him going into retirement and having stolen Burgess's money that she wants to see him die - slowly. And she has followed Denny and the con-men to Charles's place ...

Charles comes home only later, with flowers to propose to Lisa - something that can only end ... well, you know ...


Dead in France is above all else one thing: Fun! Sure, most of the plot is far-fetched, some of the genre-situations have been played to death long before this movie, and some of the characters are a bit too extreme to ever come to their full potential - but that hardly matters as the plot moves along as a steady pace, there are plenty of exhilarating plottwists to keep you glued to the screen, plenty of violence and well-staged action sequences, a very dry and British brand of humour, and hardly a dull moment.

Maybe not a masterpiece in every respect, but great entertainment at least as long as you watch it!
