Works featuring "extended incident" (26)

Le matelas epileptique (The Drunken Mattress)

Woman battles a mattress that's stuffed with a drunk. That's the film's only gag, yet it is stretched to 9 long minutes. During the rough and tumble, watch for the moments the 'woman' (Romeo Bosetti) struggles to keep on first his fake boobs, then his wig.

Le Fils du garde chasse (The Game-Keeper's Son)

The game-keeper's son witnesses his father's death while chasing a poacher, then picks up the pursuit himself. Interestingly, it's not clear whether the father is murdered, or dies accidentally after failing to stop in time - and then the same ambiguity occurs again at the end.
