Someone Should Probably Explain Batman to the French

Many of you sent me this video for Batman: Ashes to Ashes, a French fan-flick by Julien Mokrani and Samuel Bodin that… well, let me run down the list:

? Uses that same Frank Miller/Sin City/Spirit-style
? Is mostly focused on one low-level thug
? Is in French
? Is very much R-Rated
? Features Batman killing people
? Is French

…and yet, this is still somehow very, very awesome. Just let go and enjoy it as a very well-made fan flick that’s uncharacteristically dark (yes, even for Batman — more than one Bat-pal dies) and doesn’t pay strictest attention to Bat mythology. If you can do that, I think you’re in for a pretty neat time (although Batman does first appear 8 minutes in if you find yourself bored).
