Roland & Dominique, two young men from Brussels, find a rifle in the journalist’s home where they are lodging. To fight their boredom, they decide to test the weapon in a forest on cyclists or bikers, all the while taking photos of their misdeeds. A bloody odyssey ensues…

Released in France under the title Le Sexe de la Violence (The Sex of Violence), The Lonely Killers is inspired by a similar true story that happened in the Yvelines in 1971. With a cold radicality, Schulzinger follows his amoral characters through a shady Brussels and films this chase with macabre naturalism, both fascinating and repulsive.  A true unknown masterpiece, calling for urgent rediscovery.
