Political thrillers have never been France's forte ."Une Sale Affaire" ,in spite of a good cast (Victor Lanoux,Marlene Jobert ,a wasted Patrick Bouchitey),fails to convince.
A cop tries to confound a VIP of the town .He makes friend with a town clerk and uses her to get a compromising file .By doing that,he destroys the woman's life and causes her sister's death.The subject (cops doing their job and ruining innocent people's lives ) was much better applied on "Dernier Domicile Connu" which also starred Marlène Jobert (as a cop in that movie).
Watch out for a brief appearance of Christophe(r) Lambert .
