Gilles Marchand, who co-wrote the scripts for Human Resources and With a Friend Like Harry..., makes his directorial debut with Who Killed Bambi?, which he co-wrote with Vincent Dietschy. Isabelle (Sophie Quinton) is a student nurse. One night while leaving the hospital, she hears a ringing in her ear and loses her balance, passing out. When she awakens, the handsome young Dr. Philipp (Laurent Lucas of With a Friend Like Harry...) is standing over her. Amused by the young woman's seeming inability to stand on her own feet, he nicknames her "Bambi." Isabelle is not amused. Their… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Competent but ultimately disappointing."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Marchand capably builds suspense, thanks to a twisty script and nervy performances by Lucas and Quinton."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"The melodrama acts as an anaesthetic, as it's hard to stay awake while it operates merely as a gruesome style over substance film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Who Killed Bambi? is fun to watch, and newcomer Quinton has big, beautiful eyes, but the movie's contrived plot, forced conclusion and sentimental denouement rob it of real suspense and meaning."
‑ Rex Roberts, Film Journal International
"Kept me squirming in my seat for its entire running time."
‑ Jurgen Fauth, About.com
"Who Killed Bambi? does for doctors what Psycho did for showers."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"So skillful at sustaining a chilly antiseptic atmosphere in which death stalks every gleaming corridor that it comes as a sharp disappointment to find its hygienic imagery wasted on a clunking cat-and-mouse game."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A sleek and cool thriller that never quite boils over into all-out suspense, which feels enticing but also a bit dull and overlong."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"you eventually get that it's supposed to be suspenseful, but it's ... near impossible to actually feel it."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"A cool, dry spin on the hospital horror story, steeps the classic woman-in-peril scenario in allusions to Disney's uber-innocent."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A long and uneventful snooze."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"A sustained atmosphere of bleached-out horror."
‑ David Ng, Village Voice
"Its lack of sense is exceeded only by the absence of chills."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"The forced parallel with the Disney classic proves silly and pretentious, but the dull characters and lethal plot contrivances are what really do Bambi in."
‑ , E! Online
"This film is more successful in mood and setting (white hallways with stylized lighting and shadows gives a disorientating sense of dread and tension) than in the conventional screenplay."
‑ Ed Scheid, Boxoffice Magazine
