Rest in peace...
4 July 2000 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Let's face it this was an utterly stupid movie... yet it sounded promising with Annie Girardot, Philippe Noiret and Michel Audiard as the dialogues writer.

The plot is absurd and only the character of the female inspector gives some stamina to the movie.

By watching that one realizes that crap does not only come out of Hollywood. No wonder the "Cuisse de Jupiter" is now left for dead.
