| Clumsy sci-fi.
Check the title :it's the best thing the film has to offer:a word made of two words "mal " (French) and "evil" (English) which have the same meaning.

It was intended to be "rural" sci-fi without a Charlton Heston type hero.The problem lies in the fact that the movies with Heston ("planet of the apes" of course" but also "the omega man" and "solyent greeen") are damn better than the pitiful French attempt.The cast is not very exciting (Jacques Villeret is not efficient as a drama actor and Jacques Dutronc is a singer,as the precedent user says ,this does not make him an actor for all that).The post apocalyptic future was already a hackneyed subject at the time and the conclusion is clumsy ,unsatisfying ,it takes no chances ,raises no questions does not appeal or repel.

Word to the wise:2 Christian de Challonges movies are much more interesting :"l'alliance" (1970) and "le bel été 14"(1996) and too bad if their ratings are lower.Wait and see.
