an underestimated black comedy about executives
28 September 2004 | by (La Rochelle, France) – See all my reviews

That's a french film hardly known even in France but it's an astounding "avant-garde" dark satire about worldwide company executives.

It's also gathers a great cast : The late Jean Yanne (of one the best french actor of the past thirty years) and Michel Piccoli as the deranged, though respected, big boss of "Rosery and Mitchell's".

On my knowledge, the film was broadcast a few times on french television since his theatrical release. I saw it once in 83 and, recently on the cable. The film was released on VHS in the early eighties. Try to get a copy !

For the record, The film, shot in 1977, opens on a view of the World trade center in NYC and ends the falling down of a big corporation building in Paris.
