The real star of this film, the imposing and untypical french building where is settled the "Rosery & Mitchell" company is not a model. It's the actual Maine Montparnasse tower of which construction was achieved only 3 years before the shooting of this film. See more »
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.
