FRA/GER/ITA | 1976 | dir. Claude Sautet, with Michel Piccoli, Ottavia Piccolo, Jacques Dutronc, Charles Denner

Winner of a César Award in 1977, Claude Sautet’s edgy and unpredictable drama sees Michel Piccoli in magisterial form. From one day to the next, real estate developer Simon Leotard (Michel Piccoli) is faced with bankruptcy because of a crooked competitor, Lepidon (Julien Guiomar), who is asking him to pay past debts of a former partner. Thanks to Mado, a young prostitute he has just met and fallen in love with, Simon takes his revenge on Lepidon.
