Michel Mortez is going to and fro France to compere a radio game he created 25 years ago. He is famous among the average Frenchmen. But he is also a poker. Rivetot, his assistant and technician, always goes with him. He is the only one to know what really lies under Mortez's appearance of playful don Juan. When the programme is condemned by the managers, Rivetot delays as long as possible the moment he will have to announce it to Mortez...

Tandem : A Patrice Leconte film about good times when radio was the king.
There are a lot of directors in France who have been unjustly ignored by its mainstream press. This has a lot to do with the manner in which French films are received at home and outside of France. However, it is not a secret that French press has always tried to ignore its own directors. This attitude has not at all bothered director Patrice Leconte as he has a lot of loyal fans including famous people such as rock singer Mick Jagger."Tandem" is one of the most ambitious comedy film ever helmed by Patrice Chereau. It speaks about people who take their work very seriously. As a result of their dedication to work,they are unable to think anything beyond their work.This film's key roles have been played by Jean Rochefort and Gérard Jugnot who travel around France to record quiz shows.It is during one of their trips that one person learns about something for which the second person wouldn't utter anything. Although TV has always been popular in France,Tandem features a world where radio played a larger role in society.Lastly,"Tandem" teaches us all some moral lessons about the handling of a bare truth.
