Works featuring "extended incident" (28)

The Drunken Mattress (Le matelas epileptique)

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.

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

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.
