Moving, Worth seeing .
30 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

An anti-hero, proletarian, and idealistic man, Louis Carrier (played by Jean Yanne) craves for waking people up to their conditioning as larvas in today's society and puts a plan into action upon inheriting some insurance money from his deceased brother...

Jean Yanne gives a moving, authentic, and powerful performance opposite Alain Delon who plays with lucidity and presence a renowned psychologist hired by the police to hunt down Carrier.

Most likely, this movie will communicate emotions to those who wish for a better world !
