This film deals with a rich boss who's been put in the clink for insider trading or something like that. He's just come out and intends now to live life as he pleases.
A total bore from beginning to end. Nothing happens, no one speaks and by the end you are no more involved than you were at the beginning ! Even die-hard Lucchini fans ( of which I am not one ) among my friends found the film totally soporific ! We just regret not having taken our pillows with us to the cinema to sleep more comfortably !
What really makes me laugh is that film critics (intellos ) all over France are acclaiming this film as some superb work of art !
